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).

“But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraces his head. But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered disgraces her head, for it is the same as if she were shaven.

For if a woman is not covered, let her be shaven. But if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head. A man indeed ought not to cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man. For man was not created for woman, but woman for man. This is why the woman ought to have a sign of authority over her head, because of the angels.” - New Testament (1 Corinthians 11:3-10)

Hijab is the subjugation of women. 1300 years ago women were the property of men, it is still the same in Muslim countries with strict Islamic law. Islam sees women less then men. Their witness value is 1/2 of men. Their inheritance is 1/2 men. And regardless of what some mullahs preach, they love marrying underage girls. All high mullahs or clerics marry underage girls, under 18. Women need permission of men to travel, study, marry etc. etc. Don't let the greasy tongue Islamist. Tell you otherwise. To say that 1300 yrs later people should live like the prophet did is complete idiocy. He lives inn the middle of desert with clans that berried their daughters upon born because having a girl was a liability. He married a girl 6 years old. If you learn one thing from Islam is to challenge unfairness. Subjugation of women and treating them like slaves is a crime. Women who defend hijab suffer from Stockholm syndrome. read about it. Now you see 6 yr olds wearing Hijab. It is specially crazy when an unsightly women of some age feels she has to cover up at a beach were everyone is wearing swimsuits. The logic is twisted and needs to be left back where it came from 1300 yrs ago. Men have no restrictions in Islam. They get to marry several wives. The amount of abuse is criminal. Women trapped in marriages as sex and birth slaves. And what is every Muslims excuse. It is not the religion. No it is the religion and look at what it has produced in 1300 hundred years. If there is a hell you who defend child abuse in the name of religion will burn in it for eternity.

Islam gives women rights on their father's property as well as on the husband's property thus getting 1/2 from the father and 1/2 from the husband makes her share equal to men. It looks like men gets more but men will have to give their wife their rights and his sons and daughters too. The dresses that Chirstian nuns wear are similar to the Islamic dress...wearing modest colthes and covering head is a sign of respected women and you easily tell them apart from the public entertainers, after all diamonds are kept in the lockers and glasses are meant to be displayed. It doesn't mean women are not allowed to study or work and kept in a jail! Actually Burkha is much liberating then being judged by the shape and size of your body by every Tom, Dick or Harry on the street! For the professionals, Burkha saves time to get ready without fancy hair style and makes people take women seriously and concentrate on the work rather than on the pretty look. It saves time from fixing the hair and just be focused on the work and studies. Hazrat Muhammad (Swallalahu Alaihi was sallam) peace be upon him and his family too,

Hijab is truly a beautiful thing. t is not simply a piece of clothing, but rather more, it is a form of modesty and a form of behavior.

Allah says in Surat-ul-Ahzab, "O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers that they let down upon them their over-garments; this will be more proper, that they may know {as believing women}, and thus they will not be annoyed or harassed; And Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful"

You should not see the hijab as a restriction, but rather as a form of freedom, as respect. We should not limit our understanding of the hijab to just the piece of fabric. Rather, we should understand that hijab reflects our proper dress along with a chaste attitude and modest behavior as well. Hijab means a "barrier" between two things. Hijab should put a barrier between the girl and the unwanted attention of men. Did you know that every 6 minutes a woman is raped? And that 1 out of 5 women are raped in their lifetime? Well, these are true facts. But what do you think drives men to do this to the woman? Yes, it is their appearance and the type of clothing they wear because that is what attracts the man. But it is not the man we are blaming here, it is the devil, Shaytan who always interferes with our mind and thoughts. He is here as a test from Allah and Allah only gives us difficulties we can handle. So whatever may happen or the hardships one might come to face, always know that Allah is there for you. Temptations are always urging us to do the wrong thing, and regardless how hard it is to resist the temptation, pray to Allah and ask him to help you, and give you resistance and patience.

InshaAllah this helped you...

I am a married women, I am also a mother to 3 beautiful boys. I have just recently told my husband my feelings about Islam and how I would like to convert. When I read the Quran, I have this overwhelming emotion. Ever since I said this out loud and have started to read the Quran. I see everything in a different light, it is actually beautiful. I told him how I want to wear the hijab, how my want and need in submitting to Allah but also to him. Thank you for all this information.
