I honestly believe that many Christians criticize Islam, without reading about Islam from reputable Islamic sources. Furthermore, I believe that Christians do not read their Bible. Take, for example, the head scarf, may Christians think that women in Islam are oppressed because men forced them to wear head scarf. How about the hundred of thousands of Muslim women in the West who put Hijab on? Can men force them to do that in the west?? This is just a big lie against Islam.
Have you ever seen Virgin Mary in a movie without headscarf? She used headscarf in normal life.
Hijab is a part of dressing. Sikh wear Turbine. Western women [not Christian Ladies] wear BIKINI. Even then media is not allowed to show First Ladies in their Bikinis !!.
Now let's see what the Bible say about covering womens' head:
Genesis 24 64-66. (New International Version (NIV)
64 Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac. She got down from her camel
65 and asked the servant, “Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?”
“He is my master,” the servant answered. So she took her veil and covered herself.
66 Then the servant told Isaac all he had done.
67 Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah, and he married Rebekah. So she became his wife, and he loved her; and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.
1 Corinthians 11. (King James Version)
5-6 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven . 6 For if the woman be not covered , let her also be shorn : but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven , let her be covered .
10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
13 Judge in yourselves : is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
1 Corinthians 11 (New Revised Standard)
5 but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head—it is one and the same thing as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or to be shaved, she should wear a veil.
10 For this reason a woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels
13 Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head unveiled?

This what Sister Zainab says:
In Surah al-Imram 3: 85 thoseover seek a religion other than Islam it will never be accepted of him, and in the hereafter he will be one of the losers.
That is why I spend my life in Dawah for Muslim and non-Muslim area because this is the true religion of Allah that has given to all mankind. The first big jihad for me is wearing of hijab and abaya but alhamdulillah with the help of Allah I got my self-confidence of wearing in proper attire. Most of Christian friends say, what happened to you Zainab, you look like a ghost but I smile at them, and say you do not understand what you are talking about and it is better for you to study your Bible because even the Bible is very strict for the woman:
1 Corinthian 11:5-6 says
but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head—it is one and the same thing as having her head shaved. For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or to be shaved, she should wear a veil.
If Christians read their Bible carefully and understand their Bible, all of them will become Muslims.
