A Mufti and a priest had this conversation:
Priest: You Muslims oppress your women.
Mufti: In what way?
Priest: You keep them covered up and you keep them at home.
Mufti: I have a problem with you Christians: you oppress money.
Priest: Oppress money!? How can that be?
Mufti: You keep your money away from the public eye and stored in safes and banks. Why don’t you flash your money around?
Priest: Because it’s valuable and people will try to steal it if they see it easily accessible.
Mufti: Similar is the Muslim women: valuable. She is covered from the public eye to protect her from harm and being stolen. She is more valuable than your money.
Priest: You are a hard nut!
O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed.
