So girlies, I'm just wondering following the conversation that developed in the Ikhwan club regarding swimming, how many of you would wear that Islamic swimsuit and go swimming on the beach?
as salaamu alaykum wa rahmatallah,
I don't mean to jump into a strictly brothers conversation, but I hear in Turkey they have halaal swim suits for both
brothers and sisters. For sisters they have a shalwar kamees type thing with hijab, and for bro's they have shorts that
go to mid calf, all water proof material. Maybe you can ask someone going to Turkey to buy you one, I hear they're
pretty common, or find a store based in Turkey?

|As salaamu alaykum!|
If they made it big enough- (really big)
I would do it in a heart beat!

|walaikum salaam wrt,|
i love swimming, if you go early enough in the morning to secluded areas, ie right after fajr, if you wear shalwar kameez or something you can go. it's really alot of fun
in iran and other muslim countries they have days and times for women or women-only beaches...and iran they have this partition that goes like all the way down right into the sea!!

I think that is unfortunate they do not have secluded or not mixed areas in many physical activities here in the US, like swimming, gyms, and other sporting events. But I guess if people don't request it then those things will not exist.

Yeah, you really have to ask before people start to take your situation into consideration.
Alhamdulillah I never worried so much about it in my home town cause the school I went to had a pool and the lessons were always separate for boys and girls. And we also had a couple of local pools which had ladies only sessions at least once a week.
But since I've moved to Birmingham, which has like 10 times more Muslims, I've not been able to go swimming because there's only one place i have heard of that has ladies only swimming, but it's too far for me to get to!

We have a regular swimming program in our community for both brothers and sisters. What we do is rent the Junior Hight natatroium on saturdays and sundays for 2 hours. The place has NO males there on the sisters' days, and NO females there on sundays :)
Just another reason why all of y'all high school people should consider A&M when applying for college :)

As part of a muslim women's organization, we tried to arrange for women swimming just this summer. We never got far due to lack of response. Many sisters called us up and asked whether the life guard (female) was muslim and when we said no, because, a) we did not know of any muslim female life guards and b) she is employed by the community pool not by us, they immediately got discouraged and never signed up. It was kinda disheartening to see such negativity. Is there any basis for the necessity for the life guard to be muslim?
