Why Proper Hijaab Is Fard and Wajib?





Assalaam Alaikum

All praise is due to Allah, the Cherisher and Nourisher Rabb of the entire Universe; the felicity of the Hereafter is for those who fear Him. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Him. He is without partner, the object of worship of all the fore- runners and those gone-by. He maintains and administers the heavens and the earth. I further bear testimony to the fact that Muhammad Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam is His Messenger, His beloved and the custodian of His Revelation. Amm ma badd.......

The Question:

Where is it from the most holy Quran and Sahih hadith that prove the proper hijaab to be wajib?

The Answer:

There are many ayat from the Quran and Sahih Hadith that prove this. We will be reading the translation and tafseer of the most authentic Mufassireen Ullima who made tafseer like Ibn Kathir, Al-Qurtubi and At-Tabari, who are known for there great understanding of the Quran and recognized by the whole Muslim world. And all the hadith we will be citing are Authentic Sahih hadith. AllahSWT says in the Quran "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks veils all over their bodies i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way" Surah Al-Ahzaab – Verse #59 and the Ayah is explained by Aisha Radhiallaahu Ánha herself in this hadith from Al Bukhari "Narrated Safiya bint Shaiba: 'Aisha Radhiallaahu Ánha used to say: "When the Verse: "They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms," was revealed, the ladies cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces." [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60,Hadith # 282].

Allah SWT says in the most holy Quran "And Say to the believing women to lower their gaze from looking at forbidden things, and protect their private parts from illegal sexual acts and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head cover, apron, and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms" Surah An-Nur, Verses #30 and #31 ' even for this ayah Aisha Radhiallaahu Ánha narrated: "May Allah bestow His Mercy on the first Muhajirat. When Allah revealed, '...and draw their Khumur over their Juyubihinna...', they i.e. the women tore their material and covered themselves with it." [Saheeh Al-Bukhari].

Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee, who is known as Ameer Al-Mu'mineen in the field of Hadith, said that the phrase, "Covered themselves", in the above Hadith means that they "Covered their faces". [FathAl-Bari]. Now you have to think who would understand these ayat better than Aisha Radhiallaahu Ánha the MOST knowledgeable women in the matters of deen and the wife of Rasulullahsaw.

Ibn Abbas Radhiallaahu Ánhu is one of the most learned men from the Sahaba Radhiallaahu Ánhumaa. Rasulullah Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam even made duwaa for him saying "O Allah, make him acquire a deep understanding of the religion of Islam and instruct him in the meaning and interpretation of things." He has been cited in Ma'riful Qur'an with reference to Surah Ahzaab on the authority of Ibn Jarir RA with a sahih chain of narrators, that "The Muslim women are ordered to cover their head and faces with outer garments except for one eye." Now this is the interruption of the Quran from a sahabi for who RasulullahSallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam made duwaa to be able to understand the interpretation of Quran.

Imaam Qurtubi cites in his Tafseer of the Ayah on Jilbaab Al-Ahzab 33:59, that the Jilbaab is: "a cloth which covers the entire body... Ibn 'Abbaas Radhiallaahu Ánhu and 'Ubaidah As-Salmaani Radhiallaahu Ánhu said that it is to be fully wrapped around the women's body, so that nothing appears but one eye with which she can see." [Tafseer Al-Qurtubi].

Some people make the false claim that this was only for the wives of the Prophet Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam but this has been proven wrong from the following hadith Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that Fatima bint al-Mundhir said, "We used to veil our faces when we were in ihram in the company of Asma bint Abi Bakr as-Siddiq." [Imaam Malik's MUWATTA Book 20 Hadith # 20.5.16] This again proves that not only the wives of RasulullahSallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam wore the proper hijaab and that even though in Ihram women are not supposed to wear proper hijaab but if men are there they still have to cover the face as it is supported by this next hadith from Aisha... Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: Radhiallaahu Ánha who said, "The riders would pass us while we were with the Messenger of Allah Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam. When they got close to us, we would draw our outer cloak from our heads over our faces. When they passed by, we would uncover our faces. ] Recorded by Abu Dawud Book 10, Hadith # 1829: Ahmad, Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah have all narrated it , Narrated 'Aisha. [In his work Jilbab al-Marah al-Muslimah, al-Albani states p. 108 that it is hasan due to corroborating evidence. Also, in a narration from Asma {who was not the wife of RasulullahSallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam}, Asma also covered her face at all times in front of men.]

And from the great scholars of the past and many of the contemporary scholars of today also hold this opinion. Ibn Kathir RA wrote "Women must not display any part of their beauty and charms to strangers except what cannot possibly be concealed." And Imaam Ghazaali RA mentions in his famous book of Fiqh Ihyaal Uloom "Woman emerged during the time of Rasulullah 'Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam' with proper hijaabs on their Faces."

Shaikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid mentioned in his fatwaa "The most correct opinion, which is supported by evidence, is that it is obligatory to cover the face, therefore young women are forbidden to uncover their faces in front of non-mahram men in order to avoid any mischief, and they should certainly do so when there is fear of fitnah temptation."

Jamiatul Ulama Junbi Africa sate in the book Islamic Hijab by Jamiatul Ulama P.12: that the proper opinion for the Hanafi madhab is that "A woman must be properly and thoroughly covered in a loose outer cloak which totally conceals her entire body including her face!"

Great scholars of our time also agree on this, like Shaikh AbdulAziz Bin Bazz who writes in his book Islamic Fatwas regarding Women "It is compulsory for a woman to cover her face in front of non mahram men" and Shaikh ibn Uthaimin writes in the same book on page # 289 "The Islamic hijab is for the women to cover everything that is forbidden for her to expose. That is, she covers everything that she must cover. The first of those bodily parts that she must cover is her face." Other great scholars that agree with the proper hijaab being wajib are Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee RA, Shaikh Jamaal Zarabozo, Shaikh ibn Jibreen, Hakimul Ummah Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi RA, Mufti Ebrahim Desai and many more.

There are many more hadith and many great scholars of Islam have agreed upon this but if we were to quote all of them it would take me writing a book.

And AllahSWT knows best.

Q. What are the requirements for Muslim women's dress?


A: Rules regarding Muslim women's and men's attire are derived from
the Quran, Islam's revealed text, and the traditions hadith of the
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. In the Quran, God states: "Say to
the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their
modesty...And say to the believing women that they should lower their
gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty
and adornments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they
should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty
except to their husbands, their fathers...a list of exceptions"
[Chapter 24, verses 30-31] Also, "O Prophet! Tell thy wives and
daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer
garments over their persons...that they should be known and not
molested." [Chapter 33, verse 59]

In one tradition, the Prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying: "...If the
woman reaches the age of puberty, no part of her body should be seen but
this --- and he pointed to his face and hands."

From these and other references, the vast majority of Muslim scholars
and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements
for Muslim women's dress: 1 Clothing must cover the entire body, with
the exception of the face and the hands. 2 The attire should not be
form fitting, sheer or so eye-catching as to attract undue attention or
reveal the shape of the body.

There are similar, yet less obvious requirements for a Muslim male's
attire. 1 A Muslim man must always be covered from the navel to the
knees. 2 A Muslim man should similarly not wear tight, sheer,
revealing, or eye-catching clothing. In addition, a Muslim man is
prohibited from wearing silk clothing except for medical reasons or
gold jewelry. A Muslim woman may wear silk or gold.

Publishers; "Hijab in Islam," Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, Al-Risala Books;

Al-Kanadi, Abul-Qasim Publishing; "Islamic Dress," Muslim Women of
Minnesota; "Your Hijab and U.S. Law," North American Council for Muslim
Women

Q. Is Islamic dress appropriate for modern times?

A: Islamic dress is modern and practical. Muslim women wearing Islamic
dress work and study without any problems or constraints.



Q. Does Islamic dress imply that women are submissive or inferior to men?
A: Islamic dress is one of many rights granted to Islamic women. Modest
clothing is worn in obedience to God and has nothing to do with
submissiveness to men. Muslim men and women have similar rights and
obligations and both submit to God.


Q. But aren't there Muslim women who do not wear Islamic Dress, or hijab?
A: Some Muslim women choose not to wear hijab. Some may want to wear it
but believe they cannot get a job wearing a head scarf. Others may not
be aware of the requirement or are under the mistaken impression that
wearing hijab is an indication of inferior status.


Q. Why is Islamic dress becoming an issue for personnel managers and
supervisors?


A: The Muslim community in American is growing rapidly. Growth factors
include conversions to Islam, immigration from Muslim countries and high
birth rates for Muslim families. As the community grows, more Muslim
women will enter the work force. In many cases, these women wish both to
work and to maintain their religious convictions. It should be possible
to fulfill both goals.


Q. What issues do Muslim women face in the workplace?
A: Muslim women report that the issue of attire comes up most often in
the initial interview for a job. Some interviewers will ask if the
prospective employee plans to wear the scarf to work. Others may
inappropriately inquire about religious practices or beliefs. Sometimes
the prospective employee, feeling pressure to earn a living, will take
off the scarf for the interview and then put it on when hired for the
job. Modest dress should not be equated with incompetence.

Other issues include unwanted touching or pulling on scarves by other
employees, verbal harassment or subtle ostracism and denial of
promotion. Many Muslims also object to being pressured to attend
celebrations of other religious traditions or to attend
employer-sponsored celebrations at which alcohol is served.


Q. What can an employer reasonably require of a woman wearing hijab?
A: An employer can ask that an employee's attire not pose a danger to
that employee or to others. For example, a Muslim woman who wears her
head scarf so that loose ends are exposed should not be operating a
drill press or similar machinery. That employee could be asked to
arrange her hijab so that the loose ends are tucked in. An employer can
ask that the hijab be neat and clean and in a color that does not clash
with a company uniform.



Q. What are the legal precedents on this issue?


A: Many cases have demonstrated an employee's legal right to
reasonable
accommodation in matters of faith. Examples: 1 The failure of other
Muslim employees to wear headscarves is legally irrelevant. The employee
need only show sincerely-held religious beliefs. E.E.O.C. v. Reads,
Inc., 1991 2 There are no health or safety concerns at issue. Cf.
E.E.O.C. Dec. No. 82-1, 1982, also E.E.O.C. Dec. No. 81-20, 1981 3
Companies cannot give effect to private biases. In other words, just
because an employer believes customers will be prejudiced against a
woman in a scarf, that does not mean the employee can be fired. Palmer
v. Sidoti, 1984, also Cf. Sprogis v. United Air Lines, Inc., 1971 4 An
employer must demonstrate "undue hardship" caused by the wearing of
religious attire. TWA v. Hardison, 1977 Hardships recognized by the
courts include cost to the employer or effect on co-workers. 5 Dress
codes can have disproportionate impact on certain faiths. E.E.O.C. Dec.
No. 71-2620, 1971, also E.E.O.C. Dec. No. 71-779, 1970

Clearly The Proper Hijaab







Clearly the Proper Hijaab Face Veil is From the Practice of the Female Companions and Not Simply Arabian Culture

Bismillah wa salaatu wa salaamu 'ala nabiyyinaa Muhammad, wa 'ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, wa ash hadu an laa ilaha illa Allah wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ash hadu ana Muhammadan 'abduhu wa rasooluhu, salla Allahu 'alaihi wa sallam, wa ba'd:

Below you will find some proofs that the proper hijaab is not simply a practice of the Arab people, but rather, it is a practice of the female companions of the Prophet SAAWS.

This article is not meant to establish whether or not the wearing of proper hijaab is Waajib or Mustahab i.e. obligatory or highly recommended, for that is an issue which the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa'ah still debate about. Instead, the focus of this article is to establish that the proper hijaab is indeed a practice of the Sahabiyaat and it should serve as a refutation of those modernists who claim that the proper hijaab is an expression of Arabian culture and that it is not from Islam and that it is a hinderence to the our Da'wah efforts in Western nations i.e. they claim that proper hijaab wearing women work against Da'wah as their "strict" dress scares away potential interested non-Muslims!.

After reading this information, Insha-Allah you will have to conclude that the proper hijaab is a beautiful aspect of the Muslim woman's dress and it is in no way a hinderence to the true Da'wah of Islam.

The Mufassireen, such as Al-Qurtubi, site in their Tafseer of the Ayah on Jilbaab Al-Ahzab 33:59, that the Jilbaab is: "a cloth which covers the entire body... Ibn 'Abbaas and 'Ubaidah As-Salmaani RU said that it is to be fully wrapped around the women's body, so that nothing appears but one eye with which she can see." [Tafseer Al-Qurtubi].

However, aside from this Tafseer, we do in fact have an authentic Hadeeth mentioning proper hijaab. The Prophet SAW commanded: "A woman pilgrim does not cover her face with a proper hijaab i.e. does not tie or affix nor should she wear gloves." [Al-Bukharee; Muslim; Saheeh Abi Dawood #1600; authenticated by Al-Albaanee].

Thus, from this authentic Hadeeth, we can clearly see that the Sahabiyat RA were accustomed to covering their faces with proper hijaab otherwise, there would not have been any need for the Prophet SAW to specifically forbid it during the state of Ihram. Likewise, during Ihram, men are forbidden to cover their heads which shows that outside of being in the state of Ihram they were accustomed to covering their heads, and Allah knows best.

The above Hadeeth should not be used to say that Muslim women should uncover their faces during Hajj. The Hadeeth is warning against affixing a niqab, however the 'Ulama allow for a woman to cover her face with non-affixed material. Our mother 'Aisha RA said: "Pilgrims were passing by us while we were with the Prophet of Allah SAW. When they came close to us we would draw our garments from the head to cover the face." [Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah. Ad-Daraqutni reports a similar Hadeeth on the authority of Umm Salamah RA]. Thus, we see that covering the face was a priority of the Sahabiyat and it is certainly a characteristic of the women who opt to follow their righteous path.

When the Ayah in Surah An-Noor 24:31 was revealed, 'Aisha RA narrated: "May Allah bestow His Mercy on the first Muhajirat emigrants. When Allah revealed, '...and draw their Khumur over their Juyubihinna...', they i.e. the women tore their material and covered themselves with it." [Saheeh Al-Bukharee]. Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee, who is known as Ameer Al-Mu'mineen in the field of Hadeeth, said that the phrase, "covered themselves", in the above Hadeeth means that they "covered their faces". [Fath Al-Bari].

Clearly many of our contemporary 'Ulama, such as Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez 'Abdullah bin Baaz, Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al-'Uthaimeen, may Allah give them both life Ameen, feel that the proper hijaab is indeed Waajib upon the believing women and their argument is strong and convincing, in my humble opinion. Others from amongst our 'Ulama, such as the Muhaddith of our time, Shaikh Muhammad Naasiru-Deen Al-Albaanee, may Allah give him life Ameen, clearly feel that the proper hijaab is not Waajib but rather Mustahab highly recommended. Refer to his book, "Jilbaabul Mar'atul Muslimah". This argument is also strong and convincing.

Regardless of which opinion one follows, I would say that there is no doubt concerning the benefits of proper hijaab, and the scholars do not differ in this regard. In fact, today we hear many cries against the proper hijaab for many reasons which do not make much sense.

For example, the argument that proper hijaab is counterproductive to Da'wah in non-Muslim lands. After having established that the proper hijaab is indeed an authentic part of Islam, we must then conclude that to hide it is what is counterproductive to Da'wah. No one would dare think that the Sahabah spread Islam throughout the lands of the earth by concealing the practices they learned from the Messenger of Allah SAW; thus, as 'Umar ibn Al-Khattab RA declared: "LET THE SUNNAH GO FORTH AND DO NOT STOP IT WITH OPINIONS." Other modernist Du'at claim that the proper hijaab is in fact Makruh or disliked! How strange! They stand upon their own 'Aql intellect which is weak in light of the authenticated reports we have above.

Subhanaka Allahummah wa bihamdika, ash hadu an laa ilaha illa anta, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilayk. Wa Salaamu 'Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allahi wa Barakaatuhu.

Frequently Asked Questions About Proper Hijaab



Why? Why? Why?
In the five or so years since I adopted proper hijaab, I have been asked all sorts of questions about it. So, as FAQs frequently asked questions seem synonymous with The Net and computing, here are a few FAQs concerning proper hijaab and proper hijaabis. They are all extracted from actual e-mail and snail mail correspondence.

What is a proper hijaab? Where does it originate?

The proper hijaab is simply a veil that covers the wearer's face, normally not leaving the eyes exposed. The ones we are talking about here are opaque and are not fashion statements! Its origins are lost in the mists of time, but it's usage grew more widespread with the expansion of Islam in the 15th and 16th Centuries.



Is veiling only to do with Islam?

We know that some Greek women and especially virtuous Roman women veiled their faces in public. And the same is true of the Persian Empire. So veiling as such predates Islam as a form of modest concealment. But, in the three examples I have mentioned, the use of the veil was social and cultural, and had little or no religious significance.

What do you mean by the term 'proper hijaabi'?

Proper hijaabi is just a slang term, like Hijaabi - one who wears Hijab. Or in this case, one who wears proper hijaab. More generally, it includes all sisters who cover their faces in public fully.



Are women that cover their faces different than the women that only cover their hair and not their faces?

I hope not! It is merely that our interpretation of Holy Writ differs from Sisters who do not veil themselves as we do.



Aren't we simply talking about clothing here?

Yes and No. Of course we dress differently to our sisters who do not veil their faces. But the main difference comes from the way we interpret the relevant passages from the Holy Qur'an and from Hadith. We view it as our duty to hide out faces; not for social or cultural reasons, but because it is what we believe we are told to do in the Holy Qur'an. Other sisters interpret the relevant passages from Holy Writ differently to us, so their 'clothing' will be different to that of a proper hijaabi.



Is 'Hijab of the Eyes' something just done by proper hijaabi and why?

Keeping one's gaze lowered is an instruction to be found in the Holy Qur'an. Surah al Nur. 24:31 The previous verse also calls on men to do the same................... It is something that all proper hijaabis do .



I'm interested in the psyche of the one that wears the proper hijaab as opposed to the one that chooses not to. Do they become more religious?

I would not say that I was any more 'religious' than many of my Sisters who do not wear proper hijaab. I do take my obligations as a Muslimah seriously, but I do not think that makes me a 'better' sister than the many who chose not to veil themselves. I have non-proper hijaabi friends, many of whom outstrip me in piety and knowledge, and to whom I have turned for help in the past. Just wearing a proper hijaab and covering-up does not in any way guarantee a sister's religiosity. It is what lies under the coverings that counts - what the wearer believes, how she acts, and how pure is her soul.


Do they assume a role different than the one that does not?

I would hope the role that every Muslimah would aspire to would be a true servant of Almighty Allah and to eventually become a good wife and mother. So, in that, we are no different to any other well-intentioned muslimah.Where differences do occur is in what was can NOT do. For example, I cannot go roller-blading, mountaineering or skiing, nor swim in public. I do not go to the theater any more, nor to the cinema. But, for all that, I lead a full and interesting life which meets ALL my needs, both spiritual and intellectual.



Why do some Muslimahs also veil their eyes?

The eyes have been described as 'the windows to the Soul' and they are very expressive. Regretfully some men see every glance by a woman as inviting, and therefore many proper hijaabi conceal their eyes so as not to tempt or distract men who may see them in public.


Why do you wear gloves?



For two reasons. Firstly, if I cover up all the rest of my body, it seems a bit silly and contrary to me beliefs to have my hands exposed when they can be expressive in themselves. The second reason is the prevent me from touching haram items. For instance, my studies take me into libraries where there may be there are, in one case books bound in pig skin.

Gloves are a required part of the Islamic Hijaab for Muslim women! As stated by one of the best Companions of Rasullilah saw The JIlbab is what covers a woman from had to toe, ONLY excluding one eyethe left eye to see the way, and two ONLY in necessity. So, to expose the hands while the rest of the body is covered is indeed not good for a Full Hijaabi and just may cause confusion with men who may be able to tell your age, weight, skin color, and attractiveness by seeing your hands.

Do proper hijaabi's Assume a Role Dif. than one who does not veil?

YES! Full proper hijaabed sisters do have a greater responsibility in educating Muslims and Non Muslims on excepting and practicing the proper hijaab Most Muslim and non Muslims see the proper hijaab in a very Negative light. So, it is not so much that the head scarves are being seen as a threat! It is the face veil or the full hijaab. Sisters who wear the headscarves can moderate them, color them up, wrap, twist and turn them to suit the styles and approval of the Kufar. Sisters, who veil are seen more as a threat, because they are seen to be very serious about Islam, and therefore give a very stern and serious representation of actual Islam.

I'm interested in the psyche of the one who wears the proper hijaab?

To wear the full face veil/proper hijaab in this day and time the psyche of a Muslim woman who does so is seriously strong! For the most part she is well prepared to defend the proper hijaab at all cost. She must be a sister who walks, sits, and stands upright at all times, being heavily on her post.





Finally, and this does not come from me, but is a statement made by another proper hijaabi.

Isn't it very hot wearing those veils and all that clothing?

The sister replied, "Ah yes, but the fires of Hell are hotter still!"

Proper Hijaab : No Excuses!



Why do so many Muslims disagree about the issue of Proper Hijaab? Both men and women, who are otherwise educated in Islam and Allah-fearing, will often give the most ignorant-sounding excuses for disliking Proper Hijaab. Following are many of the comments that Muslims make to show that they believe Proper Hijaab to be a makruh disliked, and insha Allah some response to them.



Proper Hijaab Is Only For Very Beautiful Women

Yes, I was actually once told this by a Muslim man before I became Muslim. He insisted that I did not need to worry about veiling because only beautiful women needed to do so. How insulting! Who decides which women are beautiful and must veil, and which women are not beautiful and do not need to veil? Allah has made us all unique and beautiful and Proper Hijaab protects and saves that beauty to be shared only with our closest loved ones.




Proper Hijaab Is a Cultural Tradition , Not an Islamic one

While many cultures before and after the Prophet’s SAW time also veiled their women, the purpose and style of a Muslimah’s hijab and veil is different. We are told to draw our khimar over our bosom, something that many Jews and Christians had previously left very much uncovered. In Islam everyone is equal and only distinguished by piety, so the veil is not worn to show class or caste, or to separate maidens from married women. It is also not in-and-of-itself a symbol of piety, like the Catholic nuns. All women in Islam are expected to strive towards complete piousness and all must be treated with the same level of respect, insha Allah.

In any case, our Islamic culture is derived directly from the Qur’an where it states:



"O Prophet ! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks veils all over their bodies i.e. screen themselves completely except the eye or one eye to see the way "



Noble Qur’an Surah 33 Ayat 59



This is further exemplified to us by the Prophet’s SAW wives RA, daughters RA, the Companions’ wives RA, and the women of the Ansari, who all veiled after this revelation



Aisha used to say: “When the Ayat ‘They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms’ was revealed, the ladies cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces.”

Bukhari 6:282



Along these same lines, some even claim that Proper Hijaab is bid’ah an innovation in the deen of Islam! Such a ludicrous statement is hardly even worth the effort of refutation, especially in light of the above evidences for veiling. May Allah guide those who dare to declare haraam what He has ordained!



Since the veil was clearly worn by the women of the Prophet’s SAW own family, is should be clear that it is legitimate. But some use that particular argument to mention that the Prophet’s SAW beloved wife Khadijah RA did not wear the veil. I have never seen any evidence to clearly support whether Khadijah RA did or did not wear the veil, but we should note that she was deceased several years before the revelations of hijab. To claim that because Khadijah RA might not have veiled we do not need to is nothing more than a cheap attempt at a magician’s slight of hand, and an insult to a woman who was the first to support our beloved Prophet SAW in his Islam.




The Proper Hijaab Is Not Necessary In Today’s World

First we must understand that Islam is for all people and all times. Allah’s commandments to us are just as relevant today as they were 1400 years ago. To believe otherwise would be to doubt Allah’s Greater Knowledge and Plan for us!

We know that in this day Proper Hijaab is even more necessary for our protection than it was in the Prophet’s SAW time. Not only are we exposed to so much more from which we need to cast our eyes down, but people today are more nervy and have no respect for religious obligations. Rape and harassment are rampant and continually on the rise. Proper Hijaab also helps race relations, which are still just as sticky today as they were 250 years ago, before emancipation of slaves in North America. You cannot tell for sure the color of a sister’s skin when she is veiled, so you cannot pre-judge her based on that. Proper Hijaab is part of our Islamic identity. Wearing it leaves no doubt that we are different from the masses.





The Proper Hijaab Is Too Extreme In Western Societies And Projects The Wrong Image

Yes, perhaps Proper Hijaab is a bit “extreme” by today’s standards where girls run around in bikinis to do their grocery shopping. But we are not meant to fit into today’s society or make the choices for our lives based on today’s ever- changing values and morals or lack thereof, as the case may be!. And what “image” does the Proper Hijaab project? It projects the image of one who has submitted themselves to Allah’s All-Knowing Wisdom, and of peace, dignity, comfort, confidence, self-respect, and “leave me alone”.



The Prophet Muhammad SAW said “Whoso resembles a people in appearance, he is one of them.”

Abu Dawood, Ahmed and others





The Proper Hijaab Is a Product Of a Male-Dominated Society And a Symbol Of Oppression Of Women; Or That Is How The West Views It And We Should Not Perpetuate Their Fears.

How can the veil be oppressive if we as women are choosing it for ourselves? I am just one example of a single woman who has no family to pressure her into veiling, and yet I chose this for myself. No man is telling me I have to “hide” myself, I wear my veil because I believe it is what Allah commanded of me and it is for my own good. Perhaps instead of worrying what non-Muslims think of them, Muslim men should be more concerned with supporting their wives and daughters in their own choices! Wouldn’t it be much better to be able to answer the ignorant comment that a man is oppressing his wife by saying “I did not tell her she had to wear it, she chose it for herself and for the pleasure of Allah, and I support her choices that she makes for herself and for Allah’s pleasure and I am happy for her that she is comfortable.” Wow! Not many Western men can say they are happy that their wife is happy or that they are happy to support her choices. If a Muslim man can say this it is because he is not oppressive at all, but genuinely concerned for his wife’s welfare and happiness in this life and the hereafter. And if some foolish non-Muslim wants to ignore what is said and believe how they want to believe regardless, well, that is none of our concern.

Why are we so worried anyway about impressing non-Muslims? If they do not want to understand us, nothing we say or do can make them. In fact, they will have an even lower opinion of us for being weak and forsaking our beliefs for their insincere approval. That would indeed make Islam a joke to them!





The Proper Hijaab Is Counterproductive To Daw’ah, Especially In The West

We all know how much wearing Proper Hijaab in fact increases our daw’ah. It is more difficult to ignore than a simple head-scarf, and it produces more questions, which insha Allah we are able to answer. And we must remember that anyone who is scared off from Islam because of a piece of cloth, it is because Allah has not guided them, not because of our failing them by choosing to obey Allah. I am sure I am not the only American or otherwise convert that will tell you that I was terrified of Proper Hijaab, did not understand purdah, and was honestly scared and misunderstood several other aspects of Islam as well. But that did not stop me from accepting it when Allah guided me to it, alhamdullAllah.



Conclusion

Insha Allah, the Proper Hijaab can actually be an opening for excellent daw’ah. Without saying a word, we are already a “walking billboard” for Islam, and insha Allah we will also get a chance to answer comments and questions. We must accept that Islam is perfect whether we always understand it or not, and we should not “water-down” any aspects of it because they are deemed controversial or extreme. Do not be afraid to show Islam for all it is and all it means!

“Today we hear many cries against the Proper Hijaab for many reasons which do not make sense… No would dare to think that the Sahabah spread Islam throughout the lands of the earth by concealing the practices they learned from the Messenger of Allah SAW; thus as Umar ibn Al-Khuttab RA declared: ‘Let the Sunnah go forth and do not stop it with opinions.’

Why Proper Hijaab Is Fard and Wajib?





Assalaam Alaikum

All praise is due to Allah, the Cherisher and Nourisher Rabb of the entire Universe; the felicity of the Hereafter is for those who fear Him. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Him. He is without partner, the object of worship of all the fore- runners and those gone-by. He maintains and administers the heavens and the earth. I further bear testimony to the fact that Muhammad Sallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam is His Messenger, His beloved and the custodian of His Revelation. Amm ma badd.......

The Question:

Where is it from the most holy Quran and Sahih hadith that prove the proper hijaab to be wajib?

The Answer:

There are many ayat from the Quran and Sahih Hadith that prove this. We will be reading the translation and tafseer of the most authentic Mufassireen Ullima who made tafseer like Ibn Kathir, Al-Qurtubi and At-Tabari, who are known for there great understanding of the Quran and recognized by the whole Muslim world. And all the hadith we will be citing are Authentic Sahih hadith. AllahSWT says in the Quran "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks veils all over their bodies i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way" Surah Al-Ahzaab – Verse #59 and the Ayah is explained by Aisha Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nha herself in this hadith from Al Bukhari "Narrated Safiya bint Shaiba: 'Aisha Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nha used to say: "When the Verse: "They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms," was revealed, the ladies cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces." [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60,Hadith # 282].

Allah SWT says in the most holy Quran "And Say to the believing women to lower their gaze from looking at forbidden things, and protect their private parts from illegal sexual acts and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head cover, apron, and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms" Surah An-Nur, Verses #30 and #31 ' even for this ayah Aisha Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nha narrated: "May Allah bestow His Mercy on the first Muhajirat. When Allah revealed, '...and draw their Khumur over their Juyubihinna...', they i.e. the women tore their material and covered themselves with it." [Saheeh Al-Bukhari].

Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee, who is known as Ameer Al-Mu'mineen in the field of Hadith, said that the phrase, "Covered themselves", in the above Hadith means that they "Covered their faces". [FathAl-Bari]. Now you have to think who would understand these ayat better than Aisha Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nha the MOST knowledgeable women in the matters of deen and the wife of Rasulullahsaw.

Ibn Abbas Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nhu is one of the most learned men from the Sahaba Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nhumaa. Rasulullah Sallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam even made duwaa for him saying "O Allah, make him acquire a deep understanding of the religion of Islam and instruct him in the meaning and interpretation of things." He has been cited in Ma'riful Qur'an with reference to Surah Ahzaab on the authority of Ibn Jarir RA with a sahih chain of narrators, that "The Muslim women are ordered to cover their head and faces with outer garments except for one eye." Now this is the interruption of the Quran from a sahabi for who RasulullahSallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam made duwaa to be able to understand the interpretation of Quran.

Imaam Qurtubi cites in his Tafseer of the Ayah on Jilbaab Al-Ahzab 33:59, that the Jilbaab is: "a cloth which covers the entire body... Ibn 'Abbaas Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nhu and 'Ubaidah As-Salmaani Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nhu said that it is to be fully wrapped around the women's body, so that nothing appears but one eye with which she can see." [Tafseer Al-Qurtubi].

Some people make the false claim that this was only for the wives of the Prophet Sallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam but this has been proven wrong from the following hadith Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that Fatima bint al-Mundhir said, "We used to veil our faces when we were in ihram in the company of Asma bint Abi Bakr as-Siddiq." [Imaam Malik's MUWATTA Book 20 Hadith # 20.5.16] This again proves that not only the wives of RasulullahSallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam wore the proper hijaab and that even though in Ihram women are not supposed to wear proper hijaab but if men are there they still have to cover the face as it is supported by this next hadith from Aisha... Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: Radhiallaahu &Aacute;nha who said, "The riders would pass us while we were with the Messenger of Allah Sallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam. When they got close to us, we would draw our outer cloak from our heads over our faces. When they passed by, we would uncover our faces. ] Recorded by Abu Dawud Book 10, Hadith # 1829: Ahmad, Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah have all narrated it , Narrated 'Aisha. [In his work Jilbab al-Marah al-Muslimah, al-Albani states p. 108 that it is hasan due to corroborating evidence. Also, in a narration from Asma {who was not the wife of RasulullahSallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam}, Asma also covered her face at all times in front of men.]

And from the great scholars of the past and many of the contemporary scholars of today also hold this opinion. Ibn Kathir RA wrote "Women must not display any part of their beauty and charms to strangers except what cannot possibly be concealed." And Imaam Ghazaali RA mentions in his famous book of Fiqh Ihyaal Uloom "Woman emerged during the time of Rasulullah 'Sallallaahu &Aacute;layhi Wasallam' with proper hijaabs on their Faces."

Shaikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid mentioned in his fatwaa "The most correct opinion, which is supported by evidence, is that it is obligatory to cover the face, therefore young women are forbidden to uncover their faces in front of non-mahram men in order to avoid any mischief, and they should certainly do so when there is fear of fitnah temptation."

Jamiatul Ulama Junbi Africa sate in the book Islamic Hijab by Jamiatul Ulama P.12: that the proper opinion for the Hanafi madhab is that "A woman must be properly and thoroughly covered in a loose outer cloak which totally conceals her entire body including her face!"

Great scholars of our time also agree on this, like Shaikh AbdulAziz Bin Bazz who writes in his book Islamic Fatwas regarding Women "It is compulsory for a woman to cover her face in front of non mahram men" and Shaikh ibn Uthaimin writes in the same book on page # 289 "The Islamic hijab is for the women to cover everything that is forbidden for her to expose. That is, she covers everything that she must cover. The first of those bodily parts that she must cover is her face." Other great scholars that agree with the proper hijaab being wajib are Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee RA, Shaikh Jamaal Zarabozo, Shaikh ibn Jibreen, Hakimul Ummah Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi RA, Mufti Ebrahim Desai and many more.

There are many more hadith and many great scholars of Islam have agreed upon this but if we were to quote all of them it would take me writing a book.

And AllahSWT knows best.

Uthman Ibn Farooq

Q. What are the requirements for Muslim women's dress?


A: Rules regarding Muslim women's and men's attire are derived from
the Quran, Islam's revealed text, and the traditions hadith of the
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. In the Quran, God states: "Say to
the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their
modesty...And say to the believing women that they should lower their
gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty
and adornments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they
should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty
except to their husbands, their fathers...a list of exceptions"
[Chapter 24, verses 30-31] Also, "O Prophet! Tell thy wives and
daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer
garments over their persons...that they should be known and not
molested." [Chapter 33, verse 59]

In one tradition, the Prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying: "...If the
woman reaches the age of puberty, no part of her body should be seen but
this --- and he pointed to his face and hands."

From these and other references, the vast majority of Muslim scholars
and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements
for Muslim women's dress: 1 Clothing must cover the entire body, with
the exception of the face and the hands. 2 The attire should not be
form fitting, sheer or so eye-catching as to attract undue attention or
reveal the shape of the body.

There are similar, yet less obvious requirements for a Muslim male's
attire. 1 A Muslim man must always be covered from the navel to the
knees. 2 A Muslim man should similarly not wear tight, sheer,
revealing, or eye-catching clothing. In addition, a Muslim man is
prohibited from wearing silk clothing except for medical reasons or
gold jewelry. A Muslim woman may wear silk or gold.

Publishers; "Hijab in Islam," Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, Al-Risala Books;

Minnesota; "Your Hijab and U.S. Law," North American Council for Muslim
Women

Q. Is Islamic dress appropriate for modern times?

A: Islamic dress is modern and practical. Muslim women wearing Islamic
dress work and study without any problems or constraints.



Q. Does Islamic dress imply that women are submissive or inferior to men?
A: Islamic dress is one of many rights granted to Islamic women. Modest
clothing is worn in obedience to God and has nothing to do with
submissiveness to men. Muslim men and women have similar rights and
obligations and both submit to God.


Q. But aren't there Muslim women who do not wear Islamic Dress, or hijab?
A: Some Muslim women choose not to wear hijab. Some may want to wear it
but believe they cannot get a job wearing a head scarf. Others may not
be aware of the requirement or are under the mistaken impression that
wearing hijab is an indication of inferior status.


Q. Why is Islamic dress becoming an issue for personnel managers and
supervisors?


A: The Muslim community in American is growing rapidly. Growth factors
include conversions to Islam, immigration from Muslim countries and high
birth rates for Muslim families. As the community grows, more Muslim
women will enter the work force. In many cases, these women wish both to
work and to maintain their religious convictions. It should be possible
to fulfill both goals.


Q. What issues do Muslim women face in the workplace?
A: Muslim women report that the issue of attire comes up most often in
the initial interview for a job. Some interviewers will ask if the
prospective employee plans to wear the scarf to work. Others may
inappropriately inquire about religious practices or beliefs. Sometimes
the prospective employee, feeling pressure to earn a living, will take
off the scarf for the interview and then put it on when hired for the
job. Modest dress should not be equated with incompetence.

Other issues include unwanted touching or pulling on scarves by other
employees, verbal harassment or subtle ostracism and denial of
promotion. Many Muslims also object to being pressured to attend
celebrations of other religious traditions or to attend
employer-sponsored celebrations at which alcohol is served.


Q. What can an employer reasonably require of a woman wearing hijab?
A: An employer can ask that an employee's attire not pose a danger to
that employee or to others. For example, a Muslim woman who wears her
head scarf so that loose ends are exposed should not be operating a
drill press or similar machinery. That employee could be asked to
arrange her hijab so that the loose ends are tucked in. An employer can
ask that the hijab be neat and clean and in a color that does not clash
with a company uniform.



Q. What are the legal precedents on this issue?


A: Many cases have demonstrated an employee's legal right to
reasonable
accommodation in matters of faith. Examples: 1 The failure of other
Muslim employees to wear headscarves is legally irrelevant. The employee
need only show sincerely-held religious beliefs. E.E.O.C. v. Reads,
Inc., 1991 2 There are no health or safety concerns at issue. Cf.
E.E.O.C. Dec. No. 82-1, 1982, also E.E.O.C. Dec. No. 81-20, 1981 3
Companies cannot give effect to private biases. In other words, just
because an employer believes customers will be prejudiced against a
woman in a scarf, that does not mean the employee can be fired. Palmer
v. Sidoti, 1984, also Cf. Sprogis v. United Air Lines, Inc., 1971 4 An
employer must demonstrate "undue hardship" caused by the wearing of
religious attire. TWA v. Hardison, 1977 Hardships recognized by the
courts include cost to the employer or effect on co-workers. 5 Dress
codes can have disproportionate impact on certain faiths. E.E.O.C. Dec.
No. 71-2620, 1971, also E.E.O.C. Dec. No. 71-779, 1970

Clearly The Proper Hijaab







Clearly the Proper Hijaab Face Veil is From the Practice of the Female Companions and Not Simply Arabian Culture

Bismillah wa salaatu wa salaamu 'ala nabiyyinaa Muhammad, wa 'ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, wa ash hadu an laa ilaha illa Allah wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ash hadu ana Muhammadan 'abduhu wa rasooluhu, salla Allahu 'alaihi wa sallam, wa ba'd:

Below you will find some proofs that the proper hijaab is not simply a practice of the Arab people, but rather, it is a practice of the female companions of the Prophet SAAWS.

This article is not meant to establish whether or not the wearing of proper hijaab is Waajib or Mustahab i.e. obligatory or highly recommended, for that is an issue which the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa'ah still debate about. Instead, the focus of this article is to establish that the proper hijaab is indeed a practice of the Sahabiyaat and it should serve as a refutation of those modernists who claim that the proper hijaab is an expression of Arabian culture and that it is not from Islam and that it is a hinderence to the our Da'wah efforts in Western nations i.e. they claim that proper hijaab wearing women work against Da'wah as their "strict" dress scares away potential interested non-Muslims!.

After reading this information, Insha-Allah you will have to conclude that the proper hijaab is a beautiful aspect of the Muslim woman's dress and it is in no way a hinderence to the true Da'wah of Islam.

The Mufassireen, such as Al-Qurtubi, site in their Tafseer of the Ayah on Jilbaab Al-Ahzab 33:59, that the Jilbaab is: "a cloth which covers the entire body... Ibn 'Abbaas and 'Ubaidah As-Salmaani RU said that it is to be fully wrapped around the women's body, so that nothing appears but one eye with which she can see." [Tafseer Al-Qurtubi].

However, aside from this Tafseer, we do in fact have an authentic Hadeeth mentioning proper hijaab. The Prophet SAW commanded: "A woman pilgrim does not cover her face with a proper hijaab i.e. does not tie or affix nor should she wear gloves." [Al-Bukharee; Muslim; Saheeh Abi Dawood #1600; authenticated by Al-Albaanee].

Thus, from this authentic Hadeeth, we can clearly see that the Sahabiyat RA were accustomed to covering their faces with proper hijaab otherwise, there would not have been any need for the Prophet SAW to specifically forbid it during the state of Ihram. Likewise, during Ihram, men are forbidden to cover their heads which shows that outside of being in the state of Ihram they were accustomed to covering their heads, and Allah knows best.

The above Hadeeth should not be used to say that Muslim women should uncover their faces during Hajj. The Hadeeth is warning against affixing a niqab, however the 'Ulama allow for a woman to cover her face with non-affixed material. Our mother 'Aisha RA said: "Pilgrims were passing by us while we were with the Prophet of Allah SAW. When they came close to us we would draw our garments from the head to cover the face." [Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah. Ad-Daraqutni reports a similar Hadeeth on the authority of Umm Salamah RA]. Thus, we see that covering the face was a priority of the Sahabiyat and it is certainly a characteristic of the women who opt to follow their righteous path.

When the Ayah in Surah An-Noor 24:31 was revealed, 'Aisha RA narrated: "May Allah bestow His Mercy on the first Muhajirat emigrants. When Allah revealed, '...and draw their Khumur over their Juyubihinna...', they i.e. the women tore their material and covered themselves with it." [Saheeh Al-Bukharee]. Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee, who is known as Ameer Al-Mu'mineen in the field of Hadeeth, said that the phrase, "covered themselves", in the above Hadeeth means that they "covered their faces". [Fath Al-Bari].

Clearly many of our contemporary 'Ulama, such as Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez 'Abdullah bin Baaz, Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al-'Uthaimeen, may Allah give them both life Ameen, feel that the proper hijaab is indeed Waajib upon the believing women and their argument is strong and convincing, in my humble opinion. Others from amongst our 'Ulama, such as the Muhaddith of our time, Shaikh Muhammad Naasiru-Deen Al-Albaanee, may Allah give him life Ameen, clearly feel that the proper hijaab is not Waajib but rather Mustahab highly recommended. Refer to his book, "Jilbaabul Mar'atul Muslimah". This argument is also strong and convincing.

Regardless of which opinion one follows, I would say that there is no doubt concerning the benefits of proper hijaab, and the scholars do not differ in this regard. In fact, today we hear many cries against the proper hijaab for many reasons which do not make much sense.

For example, the argument that proper hijaab is counterproductive to Da'wah in non-Muslim lands. After having established that the proper hijaab is indeed an authentic part of Islam, we must then conclude that to hide it is what is counterproductive to Da'wah. No one would dare think that the Sahabah spread Islam throughout the lands of the earth by concealing the practices they learned from the Messenger of Allah SAW; thus, as 'Umar ibn Al-Khattab RA declared: "LET THE SUNNAH GO FORTH AND DO NOT STOP IT WITH OPINIONS." Other modernist Du'at claim that the proper hijaab is in fact Makruh or disliked! How strange! They stand upon their own 'Aql intellect which is weak in light of the authenticated reports we have above.

Subhanaka Allahummah wa bihamdika, ash hadu an laa ilaha illa anta, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilayk. Wa Salaamu 'Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allahi wa Barakaatuhu.

Frequently Asked Questions About Proper Hijaab



Why? Why? Why?
In the five or so years since I adopted proper hijaab, I have been asked all sorts of questions about it. So, as FAQs frequently asked questions seem synonymous with The Net and computing, here are a few FAQs concerning proper hijaab and proper hijaabis. They are all extracted from actual e-mail and snail mail correspondence.

What is a proper hijaab? Where does it originate?

The proper hijaab is simply a veil that covers the wearer's face, normally not leaving the eyes exposed. The ones we are talking about here are opaque and are not fashion statements! Its origins are lost in the mists of time, but it's usage grew more widespread with the expansion of Islam in the 15th and 16th Centuries.



Is veiling only to do with Islam?

We know that some Greek women and especially virtuous Roman women veiled their faces in public. And the same is true of the Persian Empire. So veiling as such predates Islam as a form of modest concealment. But, in the three examples I have mentioned, the use of the veil was social and cultural, and had little or no religious significance.

What do you mean by the term 'proper hijaabi'?

Proper hijaabi is just a slang term, like Hijaabi - one who wears Hijab. Or in this case, one who wears proper hijaab. More generally, it includes all sisters who cover their faces in public fully.



Are women that cover their faces different than the women that only cover their hair and not their faces?

I hope not! It is merely that our interpretation of Holy Writ differs from Sisters who do not veil themselves as we do.



Aren't we simply talking about clothing here?

Yes and No. Of course we dress differently to our sisters who do not veil their faces. But the main difference comes from the way we interpret the relevant passages from the Holy Qur'an and from Hadith. We view it as our duty to hide out faces; not for social or cultural reasons, but because it is what we believe we are told to do in the Holy Qur'an. Other sisters interpret the relevant passages from Holy Writ differently to us, so their 'clothing' will be different to that of a proper hijaabi.



Is 'Hijab of the Eyes' something just done by proper hijaabi and why?

Keeping one's gaze lowered is an instruction to be found in the Holy Qur'an. Surah al Nur. 24:31 The previous verse also calls on men to do the same................... It is something that all proper hijaabis do .



I'm interested in the psyche of the one that wears the proper hijaab as opposed to the one that chooses not to. Do they become more religious?

I would not say that I was any more 'religious' than many of my Sisters who do not wear proper hijaab. I do take my obligations as a Muslimah seriously, but I do not think that makes me a 'better' sister than the many who chose not to veil themselves. I have non-proper hijaabi friends, many of whom outstrip me in piety and knowledge, and to whom I have turned for help in the past. Just wearing a proper hijaab and covering-up does not in any way guarantee a sister's religiosity. It is what lies under the coverings that counts - what the wearer believes, how she acts, and how pure is her soul.


Do they assume a role different than the one that does not?

I would hope the role that every Muslimah would aspire to would be a true servant of Almighty Allah and to eventually become a good wife and mother. So, in that, we are no different to any other well-intentioned muslimah.Where differences do occur is in what was can NOT do. For example, I cannot go roller-blading, mountaineering or skiing, nor swim in public. I do not go to the theater any more, nor to the cinema. But, for all that, I lead a full and interesting life which meets ALL my needs, both spiritual and intellectual.



Why do some Muslimahs also veil their eyes?

The eyes have been described as 'the windows to the Soul' and they are very expressive. Regretfully some men see every glance by a woman as inviting, and therefore many proper hijaabi conceal their eyes so as not to tempt or distract men who may see them in public.


Why do you wear gloves?



For two reasons. Firstly, if I cover up all the rest of my body, it seems a bit silly and contrary to me beliefs to have my hands exposed when they can be expressive in themselves. The second reason is the prevent me from touching haram items. For instance, my studies take me into libraries where there may be there are, in one case books bound in pig skin.

Gloves are a required part of the Islamic Hijaab for Muslim women! As stated by one of the best Companions of Rasullilah saw The JIlbab is what covers a woman from had to toe, ONLY excluding one eyethe left eye to see the way, and two ONLY in necessity. So, to expose the hands while the rest of the body is covered is indeed not good for a Full Hijaabi and just may cause confusion with men who may be able to tell your age, weight, skin color, and attractiveness by seeing your hands.

Do proper hijaabi's Assume a Role Dif. than one who does not veil?

YES! Full proper hijaabed sisters do have a greater responsibility in educating Muslims and Non Muslims on excepting and practicing the proper hijaab Most Muslim and non Muslims see the proper hijaab in a very Negative light. So, it is not so much that the head scarves are being seen as a threat! It is the face veil or the full hijaab. Sisters who wear the headscarves can moderate them, color them up, wrap, twist and turn them to suit the styles and approval of the Kufar. Sisters, who veil are seen more as a threat, because they are seen to be very serious about Islam, and therefore give a very stern and serious representation of actual Islam.

I'm interested in the psyche of the one who wears the proper hijaab?

To wear the full face veil/proper hijaab in this day and time the psyche of a Muslim woman who does so is seriously strong! For the most part she is well prepared to defend the proper hijaab at all cost. She must be a sister who walks, sits, and stands upright at all times, being heavily on her post.





Finally, and this does not come from me, but is a statement made by another proper hijaabi.

Isn't it very hot wearing those veils and all that clothing?

The sister replied, "Ah yes, but the fires of Hell are hotter still!"

Proper Hijaab : No Excuses!



Why do so many Muslims disagree about the issue of Proper Hijaab? Both men and women, who are otherwise educated in Islam and Allah-fearing, will often give the most ignorant-sounding excuses for disliking Proper Hijaab. Following are many of the comments that Muslims make to show that they believe Proper Hijaab to be a makruh disliked, and insha Allah some response to them.



Proper Hijaab Is Only For Very Beautiful Women

Yes, I was actually once told this by a Muslim man before I became Muslim. He insisted that I did not need to worry about veiling because only beautiful women needed to do so. How insulting! Who decides which women are beautiful and must veil, and which women are not beautiful and do not need to veil? Allah has made us all unique and beautiful and Proper Hijaab protects and saves that beauty to be shared only with our closest loved ones.




Proper Hijaab Is a Cultural Tradition , Not an Islamic one

While many cultures before and after the Prophet’s SAW time also veiled their women, the purpose and style of a Muslimah’s hijab and veil is different. We are told to draw our khimar over our bosom, something that many Jews and Christians had previously left very much uncovered. In Islam everyone is equal and only distinguished by piety, so the veil is not worn to show class or caste, or to separate maidens from married women. It is also not in-and-of-itself a symbol of piety, like the Catholic nuns. All women in Islam are expected to strive towards complete piousness and all must be treated with the same level of respect, insha Allah.

In any case, our Islamic culture is derived directly from the Qur’an where it states:



"O Prophet ! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks veils all over their bodies i.e. screen themselves completely except the eye or one eye to see the way "



Noble Qur’an Surah 33 Ayat 59



This is further exemplified to us by the Prophet’s SAW wives RA, daughters RA, the Companions’ wives RA, and the women of the Ansari, who all veiled after this revelation



Aisha used to say: “When the Ayat ‘They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms’ was revealed, the ladies cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces.”

Bukhari 6:282



Along these same lines, some even claim that Proper Hijaab is bid’ah an innovation in the deen of Islam! Such a ludicrous statement is hardly even worth the effort of refutation, especially in light of the above evidences for veiling. May Allah guide those who dare to declare haraam what He has ordained!



Since the veil was clearly worn by the women of the Prophet’s SAW own family, is should be clear that it is legitimate. But some use that particular argument to mention that the Prophet’s SAW beloved wife Khadijah RA did not wear the veil. I have never seen any evidence to clearly support whether Khadijah RA did or did not wear the veil, but we should note that she was deceased several years before the revelations of hijab. To claim that because Khadijah RA might not have veiled we do not need to is nothing more than a cheap attempt at a magician’s slight of hand, and an insult to a woman who was the first to support our beloved Prophet SAW in his Islam.




The Proper Hijaab Is Not Necessary In Today’s World

First we must understand that Islam is for all people and all times. Allah’s commandments to us are just as relevant today as they were 1400 years ago. To believe otherwise would be to doubt Allah’s Greater Knowledge and Plan for us!

We know that in this day Proper Hijaab is even more necessary for our protection than it was in the Prophet’s SAW time. Not only are we exposed to so much more from which we need to cast our eyes down, but people today are more nervy and have no respect for religious obligations. Rape and harassment are rampant and continually on the rise. Proper Hijaab also helps race relations, which are still just as sticky today as they were 250 years ago, before emancipation of slaves in North America. You cannot tell for sure the color of a sister’s skin when she is veiled, so you cannot pre-judge her based on that. Proper Hijaab is part of our Islamic identity. Wearing it leaves no doubt that we are different from the masses.





The Proper Hijaab Is Too Extreme In Western Societies And Projects The Wrong Image

Yes, perhaps Proper Hijaab is a bit “extreme” by today’s standards where girls run around in bikinis to do their grocery shopping. But we are not meant to fit into today’s society or make the choices for our lives based on today’s ever- changing values and morals or lack thereof, as the case may be!. And what “image” does the Proper Hijaab project? It projects the image of one who has submitted themselves to Allah’s All-Knowing Wisdom, and of peace, dignity, comfort, confidence, self-respect, and “leave me alone”.



The Prophet Muhammad SAW said “Whoso resembles a people in appearance, he is one of them.”

Abu Dawood, Ahmed and others





The Proper Hijaab Is a Product Of a Male-Dominated Society And a Symbol Of Oppression Of Women; Or That Is How The West Views It And We Should Not Perpetuate Their Fears.

How can the veil be oppressive if we as women are choosing it for ourselves? I am just one example of a single woman who has no family to pressure her into veiling, and yet I chose this for myself. No man is telling me I have to “hide” myself, I wear my veil because I believe it is what Allah commanded of me and it is for my own good. Perhaps instead of worrying what non-Muslims think of them, Muslim men should be more concerned with supporting their wives and daughters in their own choices! Wouldn’t it be much better to be able to answer the ignorant comment that a man is oppressing his wife by saying “I did not tell her she had to wear it, she chose it for herself and for the pleasure of Allah, and I support her choices that she makes for herself and for Allah’s pleasure and I am happy for her that she is comfortable.” Wow! Not many Western men can say they are happy that their wife is happy or that they are happy to support her choices. If a Muslim man can say this it is because he is not oppressive at all, but genuinely concerned for his wife’s welfare and happiness in this life and the hereafter. And if some foolish non-Muslim wants to ignore what is said and believe how they want to believe regardless, well, that is none of our concern.

Why are we so worried anyway about impressing non-Muslims? If they do not want to understand us, nothing we say or do can make them. In fact, they will have an even lower opinion of us for being weak and forsaking our beliefs for their insincere approval. That would indeed make Islam a joke to them!





The Proper Hijaab Is Counterproductive To Daw’ah, Especially In The West

We all know how much wearing Proper Hijaab in fact increases our daw’ah. It is more difficult to ignore than a simple head-scarf, and it produces more questions, which insha Allah we are able to answer. And we must remember that anyone who is scared off from Islam because of a piece of cloth, it is because Allah has not guided them, not because of our failing them by choosing to obey Allah. I am sure I am not the only American or otherwise convert that will tell you that I was terrified of Proper Hijaab, did not understand purdah, and was honestly scared and misunderstood several other aspects of Islam as well. But that did not stop me from accepting it when Allah guided me to it, alhamdullAllah.



Conclusion

Insha Allah, the Proper Hijaab can actually be an opening for excellent daw’ah. Without saying a word, we are already a “walking billboard” for Islam, and insha Allah we will also get a chance to answer comments and questions. We must accept that Islam is perfect whether we always understand it or not, and we should not “water-down” any aspects of it because they are deemed controversial or extreme. Do not be afraid to show Islam for all it is and all it means!

“Today we hear many cries against the Proper Hijaab for many reasons which do not make sense… No would dare to think that the Sahabah spread Islam throughout the lands of the earth by concealing the practices they learned from the Messenger of Allah SAW; thus as Umar ibn Al-Khuttab RA declared: ‘Let the Sunnah go forth and do not stop it with opinions.’
