A swim suit designed to enhance the lifestyle of the active Muslim female.

The featured suit can be purchased here: modestswimsuits.co.uk

If you asked a person in Iran or Pakistan what they thought of American culture you may get a shrill or perhaps an accurate critique depending on your point of view. If you ask a French national what they thought of cultures that endorse female circumcision, you would get definitely get an ear-full and rightfully so from my point of view as well.

To the right of this paragraph is a swim suit from ahiida.com which is "...designed with the respect of Islamic values and aimed to enhance the lifestyle of the active Muslim female. ..." [Link]

To my untrained eye regarding Islamic tradition and/or law, I see no reason why a swimmer from an Islamic country cannot wear a full-bodied speed suit, goggles, and a cap and still maintain their Islamic traditions or values. In my opinion these suits look perilous in water that is deeper than shoulder high.

I found this suit on page 7 at the blog: The Muslim Woman

I have featured your website within the article itself. Was my article polite enough? When I reread it, a couple things bothered me about it. I hope I didn't come off as crass?

Would a speedsuit, cap and goggles be acceptable to Muslim culture?

Actually, to some muslim women, the speed suit would be too tight. That is why these looser suits were developed.

I see, I understand, and I now respect that. I am just concerned about women drowning with so much material around them.
