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).

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.

Muslims do not do this... I am speaking on behalf of all my brothers and sisters. Please don't start spreading these nasty lies about Muslims because we do not do that... If a woman is to get married, she has the choice to reject the man who may ask for her. She has a huge say in the marriage. If she does not want to marry the man, then she will not. What you speak of may be in culture but it has nothing- when I say nothing, I mean NOTHING- to do with Islam. So please take this as understanding and I ask you once more not to walk around spreading lies as such.

.. Thank You ..

Dear person,
It's not a law in Islam for little girls to marry old people. Please try to understand that it's not just 'muslims' who do that. Other non-muslims like the hindus in India and generally, in Asia (just an example) do this kind of shameful thing. It's the child's guardian's fault. Some are forced to and some do it for money.
It's a cultural issue. Don't involve religion here.

Peace.
