A hijab or ijÄb (ØØ¬Ø§Ø¨), as commonly understood in theEnglish-speaking world, is the type of head covering traditionallyworn by Muslim women, but can also refer …to modest Muslim styles ofdress in general. Similar head coverings (Wimple or Wimpel) arealso worn by traditional orthodox Christian and Jewish women. TheArabic word literally means curtain or cover (noun), based on the root ØØ¬Ø¨ meaning "to cover, to veil,to shelter". Most Islamic legal systems define this type of modestdressing as covering everything except the face and hands inpublic. According to Islamic scholarship, hijab is given the wider meaning of modesty, privacy, andmorality; the word for a headscarf or veil used in the Koran is khimÄr (Ø®Ù Ø§Ø±) and not hijab .Still another definition is metaphysical, where al-hijab "refers tothe veil which separates man or the world from God."

In Islam, Hijab is the dress code for females... in Arabic word literally means curtain or cover (noun). Most Islamic legal systems define this type of modest dressing as …covering everything except the face and hands in public.According to Islamic scholarship , hijab is given the wider meaning of modesty , privacy , and morality ; the word for a headscarf or veil used in the Qur'an is khimÄr ( Ø®Ù Ø§Ø± ) and not hijab . Still another definition is metaphysical, where al-hijab refers to "the veil which separates man or the world from God." The Qur'an instructs both Muslim men and women to dress in a modest way. The clearest verse on the requirement of the hijab is surah 24:30-31, asking women to draw their khimar over their bosoms.   . 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 thereof; that they should draw their khimar over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to [...] ( Qur'an 24:31 ) . In the following verse, Muslim women are asked to draw their jilbab over them (when they go out), as a measure to distinguish themselves from others, so that they are not harassed. Sura 33:59 reads:  . Those who harass believing men and believing women undeservedly, bear (on themselves) a calumny and a grievous sin. O Prophet! Enjoin your wives, your daughters, and the wives of true believers that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): That is most convenient, that they may be distinguished and not be harassed. [...] ( Qur'an 33:58-59 ) .

Well, Hijab isn't a country, its a toilet and once you put waste in that toilet, it will turn invisible and eat you... HAVE FUN WITH THAT!
Muslims wear hijab because god commanded them to in their holy book: the quran: also it is a symbol of something called hayaa a mixture of modesty and shyness
If you have the tarha or the really long one like a yard or more long then you take the end of it and you put it on you head. Pin that end under your chin with the longer side… where it can be tight and not fall off. Then, you take the longer side and just wrap it around until it covers your hair fully and you run out of wrapping. You pin it down with all the other layers. That's one way. Another way is, if you have the one that's symmetrical you put it on your head and have line it up, then you pin it under your chin.

In Shiite Islam
Hijab is compulsory for women in Islam. Shia, the 2nd biggest sect of Islam, thus just like other Muslim brothers do hijab.
Women in Islamic countries - 'required' to a varying degree depending on which Islamic country that woman lives in. In my opinion it is time that woman were able to exercise …the right to be themselves, without restriction. I know the hijab and all the accompanying paraphernalia have been around for centuries, but that doesn't necessarily make it untouchable - sometimes change is needed, and the freedom of women needs to be recognised. Women should not be made to feel guilty if a stranger, particularly a man, should see their hair and neck! God made us all, and living in the times we're in says, or demands, that equality now is pretty much essential. It's a modern world, we should go forward, not backward. Men, and women, should recognise this. Perhaps this would be a step towards a peace and harmonization so much desired by us all.
To not only cover the hair, but to wear loose modest clothes that does not reveal one's body shape. To have manners and lower one's gaze when men are around. All these contrib…ute to a proper hijab.
Just be urself nd be confident dc what others say!
Hijab for men People usually only discuss 'hijab' in thecontext of women. However, in the Glorious Qur'an, Allah (swt) first mentions'hijab' for men before 'hijab' for the …women. The Qur'an mentionsin Surah Noor: "Say to the believing men that they shouldlower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make forgreater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all thatthey do." [Al-Qur'an 24:30] The moment a man looks at a woman and ifany brazen or unashamed thought comes to his mind, he should lowerhis gaze. Hijab for women The next verse of Surah Noor, says: "Andsay to the believing women that they should lower their gaze andguard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty andornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that theyshould draw veils over their bosoms and not display their beautyexcept to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers,their sons..." [Al-Qur'an 24:31] Six criteria for Hijab According to Qur'an and Sunnah there arebasically six criteria for observing hijab: 1. Extent: The first criterion is the extent of thebody that should be covered. This is different for men and women.The extent of covering obligatory on the male is to cover the bodyat least from the navel to the knees. For women, the extent ofcovering obligatory is to cover the complete body except the faceand the hands up to the wrist. If they wish to, they can cover eventhese parts of the body. Some scholars of Islam insist that theface and the hands are part of the obligatory extent of'hijab'. All the remaining five criteria are thesame for men and women. 2. The clothes worn should be loose andshould not reveal the figure. 3. The clothes worn should not betransparent such that one can see through them. 4. The clothes worn should not be soglamorous as to attract the opposite sex. 5. The clothes worn should not resemblethat of the opposite sex. 6. The clothes worn should not resemblethat of the unbelievers i.e. they should not wear clothes that arespecifically identities or symbols of the unbelievers'religions. 4. Hijab includes conduct and behaviouramong other things Complete 'hijab', besides the six criteriaof clothing, also includes the moral conduct, behaviour, attitudeand intention of the individual. A person only fulfilling thecriteria of 'hijab' of the clothes is observing 'hijab' in alimited sense. 'Hijab' of the clothes should beaccompanied by 'hijab' of the eyes, 'hijab' of the heart, 'hijab'of thought and 'hijab' of intention. It also includes the way aperson walks, the way a person talks, the way he behaves, etc.
