Anyway, I dont see a problem with what the woman said. I'll explain bro. Allah wants us to be modest. He wants women to guard their beauty and men to lower their gaze. This creates a peaceful society without rape etc.
Now, on a personal level, she is asking rhetorically, "Why would I want anyone else apart from my husband to see me?" Can you see her modesty at a personal level? All muslim women are encouraged to be like this. Wives should only want their husbands seeing their beauty. It is the purest thing for them.
I think thats pretty sick, i dont think any woman should cover what she looks like from everyone else on earth except the man she is married to. I also dont think they want it to be that way, they are made to accept that way of life thru fear of death and humility... I think that the people of Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia hate their way of life and would change to a democratic country if they had the choice... Instead they dont, they are run by tyrants like Saddam Hussein and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad... I feel sorry for them.
