Ladies - wear a hat

Via Harry's Place, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi responding to a request for advice on whether a woman suicide bomber should remove their Hijab:
Concerning the point on Hijab, a woman can put on a hat or anything else to cover her hair. Even when necessary, she may take off her Hijab in order to carry out the operation, for she is going to die in the Cause of Allah and not to show off her beauty or uncover her hair. I don't see any problem in her taking off Hijab in this case.
Glad that's settled, you're not being a tease if the hair is shown for the sole purpose of blowing people up. I'm going to write in and checkup on bikinis.

And on Jihad:
This obligation reaches a certain extent that a woman should go out for Jihad even without the permission of her husband...
Fancy that, even without permission. Every cloud has a silver lining I suppose, but it would seem a bit late in the day for a spot of emancipation. But maybe Jihad can be translated as "pizza and beer". That would make more sense and most men would appreciate such initiative, especially when the game's on.
