Quotes word meaning as awrah (Intimate body parts)Edit

  • "...The concept of Mahram is inextricably linked to the Islamic notion of 'awrah', which denotes those parts of woman's body and man's body that need to be covered. To not cover is considered unlawful. The Indonesian equivalent of 'awrah' is called 'Aurat'. Although this concept was introduced with arrival of Islam in Indonesia, it is also "Indonesianized." Nationalists and bureaucrats alike have adopted the term in constructing Indonesian womanhood. Unlike the original Islamic definition, the Indonesian notion of Aurat is mostly used when referring to "nakedness" in general.
