"During the fall 2011 semester, I attended the American University in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in order to attain my certificate in Middle Eastern Studies. During this time, I was able to speak with and observe many women from around the Middle East who attend AUD and wear the abaya about their experiences and preferences. I was also able to visit many stores and special events to see how the abaya is made and marketed in the Gulf region. During the same semester, I was able to visit the city of Doha in Qatar, one of the UAE's near neighbors to attend the HYA Abaya Exhibition, which gathered small abaya producers and buyers from around the Persian Gulf to sell their wares. I also made visits to mosques and Muslim neighborhoods in London, UK, and Dearborn, Michigan, which are centers for Muslim populations in their regions. Anecdotes included in this study are drawn from these experiences" (hlm. 5).
"Factors contributing to the rise of neofundamentalist Islam globally are relevant to the development and spread of the abaya-as-fashion as well. After exposure to Western culture and fashion, young women throughout the Arab Gulf region have chosen to break with traditional practices in their areas in favor of a new practice" (hlm. 25)

1. That Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was not the last and final of all the prophets and messengers.
2. That after Prophet Muhammad there are still other prophets i.e., Mirza Ghulam Ahmad from Qadian, India.
3. That Mirza Ghulam Ahmad received revelations from Allah swt just as other Prophets of God and Messengers of God.
4. That Prophet Isa had died.
5. That Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the Prophet Isa in his second incarnation.
6. That Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is also the awaited Imam Mahdi.
The Laws in Islamic Syariat are:
i. Prophet Muhammad pbuh is the last Prophet until the end of the world, there shall be no other prophets after him and there shall be no other Messenger after him.
ii. The Islamic syariat brought by Prophet Muhammad pbuh is the last and final syariat sent down to mankind, and there shall be no other syariats after Islam.
ii. Claiming oneself as Prophet or Messenger (of God) after the Prophet Muhammad pbuh, will cause oneself to be out of the fold of Islam because of having contradicted the Al Qur’an and the sound Hadith of the Prophet.
Singapore is a secular state and its Constitution duly provides for the freedom to believe and practise religion, and to establish and maintain charitable and educational institutions (art 15). But its legal history is based on the precedent and judicial policy of the former colonial Straits Settlements. For the present discussion this means, first, that religion – in this case Islam – has already been confined to family law and trusts; and second, that it has no public law significance. (hlm. 32)

Penantian itu satu penyeksaan.
Kadang-kadang, aku tidak faham. Apa yang kita tidak suka orang lain buat pada kita, itulah yang kita selalu buat pada orang lain. Moga kesabaran aku, sentiasa luas tidak bertepi, bahkan tiada henti.
Saat ramai orang menolak kehadiran kita,
Saat ramai orang kurang menghargai kita,
Saat ramai orang memperlekehkan kita,
Kita masih ada Allah yang tak pernah mengecewakan,
Kita masih ada Allah yang tak membiarkan kita sendirian.
