Egypt mourns 'headscarf martyr'

Marwa Sherbini is being hailed as the shahida, or martyr, of the Hijab

The body of Muslim woman, killed in a German courtroom by a man convicted of insulting her religion, has been taken back to her native Egypt for burial.

Marwa Sherbini, 31, was stabbed 18 times by Axel W, who is now under arrest in Dresden for suspected murder.

Husband Elwi Okaz is also in a critical condition in hospital, after being injured as he tried to save his wife.

Ms Sherbini had sued her killer after he called her a "terrorist" because of her headscarf.

The case has attracted much attention in Egypt and the Muslim world.

German prosecutors have said the 28-year-old attacker, identified only as Axel W, was driven by a deep hatred of foreigners and Muslims.

Medics were unable to save Ms Sherbini who was three months pregnant with her second child. Her three-year-old son, was with the family in court when she was killed.

Axel W and Ms Sherbini and family were in court for him to appeal against a fine of 750 euros ($1,050) for insulting her in 2008, apparently because she was wearing the Muslim headscarf or Hijab.

Newspapers in Egypt have expressed outrage at the case, asking how it was allowed to happen and dubbing Ms Sherbini "the martyr of the Hijab".

Senior Egyptian officials and German diplomatic staff attended the funeral in Alexandria along with hundreds of mourners.

Media reports say Mr Okaz was injured both by the attacker and when a policeman opened fire in the courtroom.

World Day for Germany's "Hijab Martyr"

By  Hadi Yahmid, IOL Correspondent , Heba Zakaria

"Sherbini is not only a hijab martyr but also a victim of Islamophobia, from which European Muslims are suffering," Pharaon told IOL.
CAIRO/PARIS — The gruesome murder of a hijab-clad Egyptian woman by a German racist last week is continuing to send shockwaves among Muslims, while inspiring many to make a stand.

A proposal put forward by one of IslamOnline.net's readers for a World Hijab Day to mark the death of Marwa Al-Sherbini drew immediate support from around the world.

"We are throwing our weight behind this proposal," says Abeer Pharaon, the chair of the Assembly for the Protection of Hijab.

    * Marwa's Tragic Death & Islamophobia (Share)

"Sherbini is not only a hijab martyr but also a victim of Islamophobia, from which European Muslims are suffering," she stressed.

"Her death deserves to be commemorated and marked as a World Hijab Day."

Sherbini, 32, was stabbed to death by a 28-year German of Russian origin in a courtroom in the eastern city of Dresden on Wednesday, July 1.

He stabbed her 18 times before the pregnant woman was to testify against him for insulting her for wearing hijab.

Sherbini's husband, who was preparing to discuss his Masters next month, was also injured when he tried to intervene to protect her.

The despicable crime sparked calls by IOL readers for action in defense of Hijab, an obligatory code of dress that every Muslim woman must wear.

One reader suggested marking the tragic death of the young woman with a special day on which Muslim women across the world would take to the streets to defend their dress code.

"We are supporting the proposal," Rawa Al-Abed, an official in the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe, told IOL.

"We are also calling for organizing more events to raise awareness about the rights of Muslim women in Europe, including wearing hijab."

Many Muslims marks the International Hijab Solidarity Day in the first week of September.

The day was launched by the London-based Assembly for the Protection of Hijab (Protect Hijab) in 2004 to protest a French law banning hijab in state schools.

Islamophobia

Sherbini was stabbed to death while her husband while wounded injured when he tried to protect her.
Muslim leaders say Sherbini's murder is a reminder of the prevailing Islamophobia in the West.

"What happened to her is very dangerous," Sami Dabbah, spokesman for the Coalition Against Islamophobia, told IOL.

He said the Paris-based Coalition has repeatedly wounded the alarm over growing anti-hijab sentiments in the West.

"We had warned that one day we will see a Muslim woman being killed because of her hijab."

Amina Nusser, professor of theology and philosophy at Al-Azhar University, supports the World Hijab Day proposal.

"It will be a practical response to unjustified enmity to hijab," she told IOL.

"It will be an opportunity to remind the West of their injustice to Muslim women and will also be a chance to show the West that Islam calls for pluralism."

Nusser insisted that the requirement for Muslim women to wear modestly is no different from other faiths.

"Christian Orthodox women still wear a veil and modest clothes before entering churches."

Mohamed Al-Bazzawi, the chairman of the Muslim Association of Denmark, agrees.

"A Hijab Day will remind Westerners that it is Muslim woman's right to wear what she likes just as non-Muslim women wear what they like," he told IOL.

"Those who only talk about women's rights in the West should realize that they should not deny Muslim women the right to wear hijab."

Asalamualaikum wrt wb,

All praise be to Allah.


Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon.  May Allah have mercy on our sister Marwa Sherbini, who was murdered while pregnant .


The word martyr has often been used to malign Muslims in the media.  Perhaps it is better to say she was a victim of anti-Islamic hysteria that is simmering in the West, or the hero of hijab.

But we should place them blame for this hate crime and terrible murder squarely on the elected officials who have done nothing to stop anti-Muslim hysteria, or rather encourage it by stating, for example, that the "veil is unwelcome" in their countries, and ban the hijab on the grounds that it is against secularism.  When a president of a country makes statements like that, people listen.


Elected officials have to speak out forcefully against anti-Islam bias, or at least stop attacking Islam.



And Allah knows best.


Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.
