Kerala Muslim Women Hijab Scarf purdah wearing percentage colleges

Assalam o Alaikum,
Kerala is southern state of India on the bank of Arab Sea. Islam reached here directly by Sahaba. It is said that there are graves of  many Sahaba in Kerala..
The Kerala Muslims, estimated at around 27% of the state’s population,
They are probably the most well educated Muslim community in India. They are on the top in India on many parameters like in Religious and Modern education financially well off.

They are many Medical Dental and Engineering colleges run by Minorities and have good number of Muslim Students.
Here I want to share a very Special feature of Kerala Muslim Women................

In Kerala Ladies in all walk of life and in all social Strata wear Hijab the Islamic Purdah. 
Obviously Difficult to estimate what is the percentage
But it is nearly 95- 100 %.................. Hardly you will find any muslim lady without Head Scarf. Allahu Akbar

 The Northern MALABAR districts of Mallapuram Calicut Kannur Kasargod and Waynad which has good number  of Muslim Population it can be easily observed................

Even in Medical /Dental /engineering Pharmacy, other professional colleges good number of students are Muslim Girls. There also percentage of girls with headscarves is nearly 95 -100 %.

(Some one may argue that although they wear scarf but percentage of women with full face covering is less.I agree that full face covering percentage is less. But we should appreciate whatever is good and should do effort and dua for more.In Northern states even in Institutions like Aligarh Muslim Universty and Jamea Millia Islamia Situation is not as good as Kerala with respect to Hijab. Percentage is very poor. 3 years back I visited these places of India Don't know current situation. May Allah give Hidayat to all of us)
May Allah accept us and give Taufeeq to obey all commands of Almighty Allah.

From Faisal Award winner sheikh Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi book
"Everyone knows that Prophet was descended in Arab who was ignorant and unmannered to the deepest level. All were illiterate.The Quran mentioned the arab nation as The illiterate
هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولاً مِنْهُم
He is the One who raised amidst the unlettered people a messenger, Not only they were illiterate but were deep filled in the worst kind of social economic disarray. وَإِنْ كَانُوا مِنْ قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلاَلٍ مُبِينٍ وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَى شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِنْ النَّارِ While they were earlier in open error. You were at the brink of a pit of Fire
Prophet Approach for education and Nurturing
The first thing infused by prophet was to make them eager, keen and passionate for Deen and the knowledge of deen.All sahaba were keen to learn the required Ilm for guidance.And those who has learned something considered it obligatory to teach others the same.
Mutaharrak Amli Darsgah (Prophet established Practical and Kinetic seats of learning) Right from Beginning Prophet made a system with the foundation principles as Knowledge with Practice (Ilm ke saath Amal)
Practice based on Knowledge (Amaal ke saath Ilm)
Learning with teaching (Taleem with TAALLUM)
The whole Islamic society was a practical kinetic (Mobile) seat of learning (Madarsa) in which everyone was seeker for himself (Taalib) and teacher for others.The lessons of this School were not used to be reinforced alone rather by interdependence i.e. trying to memorize others and in conveying deen to others This teaching used to get imprinted on heart rather than only tongue.
To be precise lets understand that lessons of swimming not to take on dry classes rather in in the river of life. It is very clear from Quran Hadith that following is a parts and parcel of a Muslim life.
1. To learn deen and to practice it in life.
2. To Teach deen (Islamic Knowledge and Practice) to others
3. Encouraging for good and advising to stop from bad
4. Striving for Spread and Propagation of deen.These all should be parts of a Muslim life.
In the era of prophet and early generation of Muslim people of all walk of life i.e Farmers businessman rich or poor used to spare some time for learning and teaching deen.
Temporary Migration Motivation and Striving for deen
7. The migration and motivation, movement and striving for deen has to be revived. It is the fundamental structure of Islamic knowledge and service of prphet era, that is to be replicated and revived.
8. Muslims should be encouraged to migrate temporarily (leave engagements for a short period). In this short period they should be provided with a practical religious environment following Sunnah and Shariat. This environment will make them familiar with a religious life to adopt.
9. This basic skeleton of this environment will be built by accompanying fellows and further cemented by their effort to motivate other people of the area where they have gone and stationed.
Migration and Motivation will be three way Process
a. Between each member of the group through a bidirectional process. (In group some will be more knowlagable and some less they will learn knowledge and qualities from each other Wa Tawanu Alal birre wattaqwa.
b. It will also motivate the people of the area where they have gone to learn deen and service of deen.By this way it will become a chain and will bring revolution in Whole ummat.
On the above points each section of the Muslim Ummah is called to temporary leave their busy engagements for a short period of time and to utilize time for teaching and learning in a religious environment.”
For this co-operation of all Muslims are solicited in effort of Tablighi Jamaat
