Nigerian Obabiyi Aishah Ajibola wins Muslim beauty pageant rival to Miss World

The Times of India:
JAKARTA: A Nigerian woman tearfully prayed and recited Koranic verses as she won a beauty pageant exclusively for Muslim women in the Indonesian capital on Wednesday, a riposte to the Miss World contest that has sparked hardline anger.

The 20 finalists, who were all required to wear headscarves, put on a glittering show for the final of Muslimah World, strolling up and down a catwalk in elaborately embroidered dresses and stilettos.

But the contestants from six countries were covered from head to foot, and as well as beauty they were judged on how well they recited Koranic verses and their views on Islam in the modern world.

  1. Incredible and Impressive!

    Although, I would say, we humans are followers. Why do they need to have a Pageant rivaling Miss World? Why don’t they create a better name?

    All in all, I think the effort and result is excellent.

  2. I have not seen the video clips of the event. Someone who had seen it should inform me. Anyway my comments: 1. IF it is solely based on intellectual and academic competition, GOOD.
    2. If it involves muslim women displaying beauty; even if they are in full hijaab, BAD. As this is against the instructions of Allah for women not to display their beauties even while walking ordinarily. Not to talk of delebrate and intentional dispalay.
    3. The organizers don’t need to borrow from the Dajjal Miss World. Man tashabbaha bi Qawmi fa huwa minhum. He who imitates other nations is surely of them.
    4. The name Beauty Peagant or whatever they call it should not have been chosen by the organizers.
    5. May Allah open the eyes of the world to recognize the coming of the Imam of the Age. No one WILL be able to save the world from Dajjal. Holy Prophet (saw) has assigned the killing of Dajjal to the Promised Messiah (as). He has come. He is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian. His fifth Khalifah is currently leading the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. May Allah keep on helping him. Ameen. Accept him and you will be saved from Dajjal.
