It is a branch of freemasonry, designed for couples. For a lady to join, her husband or father must be a member.** She need not be married. And her husband is not required to join so long as she meets the membership requirement.

I know most women inside had veil on, so perhaps this is what is referred to, as part of the ritual involves lifting one's headdress for a few seconds.

As such though, one must profess believe in God to be involved. Does not have to be a Specific god, In fact Masons often refer to God as "The Great Architect of the Universe" Some branches like Grotto and shrine will use the term "Allah" While some levels of the York Right will require a vow to defend the Christian Faith. But for OES a belief in God is suffice.

I see nothing in it that would conflict with Islam especially with Charity and Charitable works being important to both groups and not exclusive to any one.


**At least it used to be.

WM means Worthy Matron, the female leader of the OES Meeting. . In the lodge, WM refers to Worshipful Master, and only the Worshipful master may wear a hat in the lodge and he Must wear at hat at all times except for prayer. The reason for this is so that traditionally, someone can go into a lodge and immediately know who is in charge. If Other women are wearing veils, other than the Worthy Matron, Perhaps there would be some confusion aas to who is in charge?
