O Muslimaat! Dont Mock Your Sisters!

O you who believe! Let not a group ridicule at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult ones brother after having Faith. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Dhalimoon. (49/11)

Our brother, Abul-'Abbaas Moosaa Richardson while mentioning the explanation of the aforementioned verse, discusses the actions done by some sisters in the way the deal with others who don’t wear the niqaab; whether they don’t wear it following a specific school of thought, position of a scholar or general lack of study on the issue. This segment also discusses the affilation founded upon garments (i.e. groups, forums, mailing lists, etc, specific for those who adorn the garment of  niqaab) Sisters! You are bound together by an ‘aqeedah and a manhaj, not a veil! This issue is further exasperated considering the majority of 'ulamaa historically, have not held the niqaab to be obligatory but rather recommended, so perhaps caution and care is needed when giving da'wah to one another.
