A British man came to Sheikh and asked..
British man : Why is it not permissible in Islam for women to shake hands with a man?
Sheikh : Can you shake hands with Queen Elizebeth??
British man : Of course not, there are only certain people who can shake hands with Queen Elizebeth.
Sheikh : Our women are queens and queens do not shake hands with strange men.
Then the British man asked the Sheikh..
British man : Why do your girls cover up their body and hair??
The Sheikh smiled and got two sweets. He opened the first one and kept the other one closed. He threw them both on the dusty floor and asked the British..
Sheikh : If I asked you to take one of the sweets which one will you choose??
British man : The covered one.
Sheikh : That's how we treat and see our women..
