  1. Iam pleased with his last article about nudity amongs women in Morocco but unfortunately our ISLAMIC country is full of bars and night clubs and our ISLAMIC education at schools is very limited in 2 hours a week instead it suppose to be the higher hours from all subjects, da3wa programs also are not much in the cities mosques, that's why youth and specially women are getting too westernized.
    Allah protect us and our children from the wordly life.
