Quranic verses about Hijab

"O you Children of Adam! We have bestowed on you raiment to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness, that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition.” (Quran 7:26)

“And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear therof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, or their brothers' sons or their sisters' sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.” (Quran 24:31).

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.” (Quran 33:59).

The word 'khimar' can be found in the Quran in 24:31 While the first basic rule of Dress Code for the Muslim women can be found in 7:26, the second rule of the dress code for women can be found in 24:31. Some Muslims quote verse 31 of sura 24 as containing the 'hijab', or head cover, by pointing to the word, khomoorihinna, (their khimars), forgetting that God already used the word 'hijab', several times in the Quran. Those who are not shackled by pre-conceptions will easily see that there is no command in 24:31 for women to cover their heads. The word 'khimar' does not mean 'hijab' nor head cover. Those who quote this verse usually add the words (head cover) and (veil) after the word 'khomoorihinna' and usually between brackets. These additions are their own words not the words of God and they are clearly added to the text to imply a meaning not found in God's words.

In other words there are absolutely NO reason or order from god for women to cover their head or hair. It is only a culturary custom from thousands of years before Islam passed down by Jews and christians.

Be proud of the body God gave you, and cover only what is natural for the circumstance.




Ameem and Alhamdulluliah, brother Muhammad. This has only been used to keep women subjective and not allowing them to freely express who Allah created them to be. It clearly says draw them across their bosoms. They were already weraring head covers , but breast were openly exposed as is today, therefore allah told women to use the head covers to cover their bosoms . He never said cover your head

I totally Agree. Why do the HUMANs CLAIM its God's words by putting "parenthesis" ? Nauzubillah.. isnt that a grave sin?

Quran 7:26
"Oh ye child of Adam cover your shame . "
Quran 24:31
"and say to the believing women , don't display or beauty or ornaments "
Quran 33:59
"Prophet to your wives , have them draw their clock over their bossoms , around them .



just replying to the individual who said the problem is that there is no head of the faith. that is exactly what makes Islam unique is that the interpretation is left to the individual. And the relationship between someone and God is direct with no intermediaries in between.


But this is not the case at all.. correct me if I am wrong. Interpretation is not left for the individual. Interpretation is done by clergy men, who interpret for 'others'. People are not allowed to see with their own eyes or hear with their own ears.
If people were really taught to investigate their understanding of truth by themselves, then there would be no veils that keep them from understanding their reality. Unfortunately those intermediaries exist. Every human being is created equal. They all have minds to reason for themselves. There are no people who were created better to interpret on someone else's behalf.
