The Muslim Woman...
Who is She?

2005 Vol. 4: July/Aug

Imagine a summer day on the resort beaches of Larnaca, Cyprus—a tiny island in the Mediterranean Sea near the coast of Lebanon and Israel. The sun’s strong rays are creating temperatures of nearly 100 degrees and the humidity hovers around 80 percent. An occasional breeze is a refreshing welcome. It is a beautiful day for Muslim honeymooners visiting from the Arabian Gulf. They sit side-by-side looking at the sea—the groom in shorts and a tank top; his bride in a new black chador (floor-length robe), full-face veil, and long dark stockings.
