627 C.E. The Prophet Muhammad wanted to segregate the women from the men. Also, he wanted to help the women to wear a hijab so they won't be recognized in the streets, and no harm would come to them. The above answer gives the (wrong) impression that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) wanted …on his own to introduce hijab. The fact is that he was ordered by Allah as per following quotation from The Noble Qur'an - Al-Ahzab 33:59 "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to wear over them "jalabeebs". That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allaah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. " The interpretation of jalabeeb can be given only by a person who is well versed with Arabic language, and the customs of Arabs in those days when the order came from Allah. May be jalabeeb was worn to distinguish the Muslim women from non-Muslims as the latter went around showing themselves without any hijab. I invite some Arab scholar to kindly elaborate on jalabeeb.

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 Ch…ristian 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."

Hijab is the islamic covering women and girls must wear in the religion of Islam. It is a modest dress covering the hair, ears, and neck . It should never be short or tight. It should be modest and not attracting attention. The only things visible should be the face and the hands/fingers.
yes you can person dum do. person all you got to do is shut up
Muslim men are starting to prefer hijab more as modernity ensues. A recent poll conducted, that about 80% of men in Saudi Arabia would be ok to see women in hijab.
There are many different types of Hijab so it all depends on whch type yuo wear. The most simplest is a one piece hijab that you simply slip over your head
Muslim females wear hijab to obey the command of Almighty Allah as it says in the Quran and to please Allah as an act of worship to God.
Hijab is when a woman covers everything but her face an hands without trying to show off her shape or wearing bright/intricate patterns and colors.
Well I'm a Muslim myself, It's not just in Iraq that the women wear hijabs. It's in most of the Muslim countries and the reason why is because they don't want other men looking at their women.

HIJAB provides a safe and secure situation for women to work and have effective role in society. They regard HIJAB as immunity not limitation. They see that with HIJAB society does not look at them just as pieces of beauty but honors them because of their reason, knowledge and skills. Just a cursory… glance at surveys and statistics about sexual harassments that took place at work places, faculties and schools in western societies confirm that the only solution is HIJAB. .................................... answer: All parts of free women, except their palms and faces, including their wrists, outer parts of their hands, hanging parts of their hair and under their feet are awrat (and therefore they must be covered) during a namÃ¢z, according to the HanafÃ® Madhhab. There are also quite a number of valuable books saying that outer parts of hands are not awrat . According to them, it is permissible for women to perform namÃ¢z while outer parts of their hands up to wrists are bare. However, it is better for women to perform namÃ¢z wearing a gown with sleeves long enough, or a head cover large enough, to cover their hands, and thereby to pursue a course of action compatible with all the written sources. There are savants who said that women's feet were not awrat in namÃ¢z , but those same savants said that it was sunnat to cover and makrÃ»h to open them when performing namÃ¢z . [It is written in the book KÃ¢dihÃ¢n that hanging parts of hair are like feet]. If one-fourth of a man's or woman's awrat part remains bare as long as one rukn , the namÃ¢z becomes annulled. If a smaller part remains exposed, the namÃ¢z does not become nullified, but it becomes makrÃ»h . For instance, the namÃ¢z of a woman one-fourth of whose foot has remained bare will not be sahÃ®h . If she herself uncovers it, her namÃ¢z becomes annulled immediately. It is written in Umdat-ul-IslÃ¢m , "A woman's namÃ¢z which she performed with bare heelbone, ankle, neck, or hair is not sahÃ®h . Thin tissue that lets the shape or color of the thing under it be seen is equal to none." In the ShÃ¢fi'Ã® Madhhab, a woman's whole body, other than her two hands and her face, is always awrat . Hadrat Ibni 'Ãbidin rahmatullÃ¢hi 'alaih says in Radd-ul-mukhtÃ¢r: It is fard to cover one's awrat parts outside of namÃ¢z as well as when performing namÃ¢z . It is makrÃ»h tahrÃ®mÃ® to perform namÃ¢z by covering oneself with silk or with usurped or stolen clothes. However, since a person has to cover himself, a man can use something made of silk, if he cannot find something else. It is fard to cover oneself when one performs namÃ¢z alone, too. A person who has clean clothes is not permitted to perform namÃ¢z naked in the dark even when he or she is alone. When alone and not performing namÃ¢z , it is fard for women to cover between their knees and navels, wÃ¢jib to cover their backs and bellies, and adab to cover other parts of their body. When alone in the home they can busy themselves around with their heads bare. When there is one of the eighteen men that a woman can show herself to, it is better for her to wear a thin headdress. When alone, one can open one's awrat parts only when necessary, e.g. in a toilet. It has been said (by savants) that it is makrÃ»h , or that it is permissible or it is permissible when at a small place, to open one's awrat parts when one is alone and making ghusl . When not performing namÃ¢z, it is necessary to cover oneself even if the only clothes readily available for the purpose have been smeared with najÃ¢sat . It is written in Al-Fiqh-u-alal-madhÃ¢hibil-erba'a, "The four madhhabs do not exactly agree on the parts of body men and women have to cover when they perform the namÃ¢z or on the parts which are harÃ¢m for men to show one another, for men to show women, and for women to show their mahrams . However, it is harÃ¢m in all three madhhabs for women to show men and female non-Muslims their bodies other than their faces and inside and outside their hands, and for these people to look at them." In the ShÃ¢fi'Ã® Madhhab, on the other hand, their faces and hands are awrat (and therefore must be covered) in the presence of men who are nÃ¢mahram to them, at times when doing otherwise would cause fitna . Permissible as it is for women to expose their faces and palms to men who are nÃ¢mahram to them, men are not permitted to look lustfully at faces or palms of those women who are nÃ¢-mahram to them, no matter whether they are Muslims or disbelievers. It is permissible for women to open their faces and palms to men who are nÃ¢mahram to them, yet men are not permitted to look lustfully at faces or palms of those women who are nÃ¢mahram to them, no matter whether they are Muslims or disbelievers. When there is no necessity, it is makrÃ»h to look without lust at those parts of women that are permissible to look at, e.g. at faces of nÃ¢mahram women, at pictures of their awrat parts, at awrat parts of children that have learned to speak. Awrat parts of those children that have not started to talk yet are only their saw'atayn [private parts]. Animals do not have awrat parts. Also, it is harÃ¢m to look lustfully at boys' faces, yet it is permissible to look at them without lust even if they are beautiful. It is written in FatÃ¢wÃ¢-i Khayriyya, "When there is the danger of fitna , a father can keep his beautiful discreet son who has reached the age of puberty in his own home and under his own discipline. He may not let him go out on a travel or for education or on hajj (pilgrimage) without a beard. He protects him like a woman. But he does not veil him. In streets there are two devils near every woman. And there are eighteen devils near a boy. They try to mislead those who look at them. It is fard for a boy to obey his parents' Islamically licit instructions. When there is no danger of fitna , a father cannot force his discreet son who has reached puberty to stay at home." [It is written in the second volume of Majma'ul-anhur that our Prophet sall-Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ 'alaihi WA sallam stated, "On the day of Judgment molten hot lead will be poured into the eyes of those who look lustfully at the faces of women who are nÃ¢mahram to them." KÃ¢dizÃ¢da, who explained the book BirgivÃ® VasiyyetnÃ¢mesi, says in his discourse about the kinds of ruination incurred by one's eyes that Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ declares in the thirtieth Ã¢yat of SÃ»rat-un-NÃ»r, "O My Messenger, sall-Allahu 'alaihi WA sallam ! Tell the Believers not to look at harÃ¢ms and to protect their awrat parts against harÃ¢ms ! Tell those women who have Ã®mÃ¢n not to look at harÃ¢ms and to protect their awrat parts from committing harÃ¢m !" It is written in RiyÃ¢d-un-nÃ¢sihÃ®n that RasÃ»lullah sall-Allahu 'alaihi WA sallam declared in his last wadÃ¢' (farewell) hajj, "The eyes of a person who looks at a nÃ¢mahram woman lustfully will be filled with fire, and he will be flung down into Hell. The arms of a person who shakes hands with a nÃ¢mahram woman will be tied around his neck, and then he will be sent down to Hell. Those who talk with a nÃ¢mahram woman lustfully without any necessity will remain in Hell a thousand years for each word." Another hadÃ®th declares, "Looking at one's neighbor's wife or at one's friends' wives is ten times as sinful as looking at nÃ¢mahram women. Looking at married women is one thousand times as sinful as looking at girls. So are the sins of fornication." It is written in the book BarÃ®qa that the hadÃ®ths "Three things (when looked at) put varnish on the eyes: Looking at a verdure, at a stream, at a beautiful face" and "Three things strengthen the eyes: Tinging the eyes with kohl, looking at verdure, and at a beautiful face", state the use of looking at people who are halÃ¢l to look at. In fact, looking at nÃ¢mahram women and girls weakens the eyes and darkens the heart. As informed by HÃ¢kim, BayhaqÃ®, and AbÃ» DÃ¢wud, a hadÃ®th-i marfÃ» conveyed by AbÃ» UmÃ¢ma radÃ®allahu 'anh declares, "If a person, upon seeing a nÃ¢mahram girl, fears Allah's torment and turns his face away from her, Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ will make him enjoy the taste of acts of worship." His first seeing will be forgiven. A hadÃ®th declares, "Those eyes that watch the enemy in a jihÃ¢d made for Allah's sake or that weep for fear of Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ or that do not look at harÃ¢ms will not see Hell fire in the next world." ] Seven or ten year old attractive girls as well as all girls who have reached the age of fifteen or the age of puberty are equivalents to women. It is harÃ¢m for such girls to show themselves with bare head, hair, arms and legs to nÃ¢mahram men, or to sing to them or to talk to them softly and gracefully. Women are permitted to talk to nÃ¢mahram men seriously in a manner that will not cause fitna when there is necessity such as buying and selling. So is their opening their faces when among men. It is gravely sinful for women to go out with bare head, hair, arms and legs, to let their voice be heard by nÃ¢mahram men without necessity, to sing to them, to let them hear their voices through films or records or by reading QurÃ¢n-al karÃ®m or by reciting the mawlid or the adhÃ¢n . [It is harÃ¢m for women and girls to go out with dresses that are thin or tight or of fur, wearing their ornaments such as ear-rings and bracelets without covering them, clad like men, cutting their hair short like men. Therefore, it is not permissible for them to wear trousers, not even ample ones. Trousers are men's clothing. In hadÃ®th-i sharÃ®fs , which exist in TarghÃ®b-us-salÃ¢t, "Those women who dress themselves like men and those men who ornament themselves like women are accursed." In fact, tight trousers are not permissible even for men. For in this case the shapes of private parts can be seen from the outside. Furthermore, it has not been an Islamic custom, neither of old nor now, for women to wear trousers. It has come from the irreligious, from those who do not know the Islamic way of attirement. HarÃ¢ms cannot be Islamic customs even if they have spread and settled. It is declared in a hadÃ®th that he who makes himself resemble disbelievers will be on their side. Trousers can be worn under a mantle, yet the mantle must cover the knees as if there weren't trousers under it. Baggy trousers, being very ample, can be good dressings for women, too, at places where they are customary. If they will cause fitna at places where they are not customary, it is not permissible to wear them. Great Islamic scholar QÃ¢dÃ® SanÃ¢ullah-i PÃ¢niputÃ®, in explaining the seventh piece of advice at the end of the book TafhÃ®mÃ¢t by ShÃ¢h Waliyyullah-i DahlawÃ®, says, "Of old, it used to be an Islamic custom to go out wearing a long shirt, wrapping oneself up with a large towel, wearing clogs or things like that. But now it would be ostentation to go out with such things on at places where they are not customary. Our Prophet salla-Allahu 'alaihi WA sallam prohibited ostentation and making fame. We must dress ourselves with things that are customary among Believers. We must not keep ourselves aloof." So is the case with a woman's going out with a dress with a veil (chador) at places where it is customary for women to wear ample mantles. In addition, causing an Islamic attirement to be mocked at, she will be sinful.] Whether in namÃ¢z or outside namÃ¢z , it is fard to cover one's awrat parts lest others will see from the sides, but it is not fard to cover them from oneself. If one sees one's own awrat parts when one bows for ruku' , one's namÃ¢z does not become annulled. But it is makrÃ»h for one to look at them. Something transparent like glass or nylon that lets color of the thing under it be seen cannot be a covering. If the covering is tight or, though ample, if it sticks to one of one's awrat parts so that it resembles its shape under the covering, it does not harm namÃ¢z . But it does not cover one from others. It is harÃ¢m to look at someone else's qaba awrat that can be seen in this manner. Men's private parts on their front and in their back, termed saw'atayn , and their buttocks are their qaba awrat . When a sick person who lies naked under a blanket performs namÃ¢z by signs with his head inside the blanket, he has performed it naked. If he performs it keeping his head outside the blanket, he will have performed it by covering himself, which is acceptable. For it is compulsory not to cover oneself but to cover one's awrat parts. For this reason, it is not permissible to perform namÃ¢z naked in the dark, in a lonely room, or in a closed tent. A person who is not able to cover his awrat parts sits like sitting in namÃ¢z , or stretches his feet side by side towards the qibla , which is better, covers his front private part with his hands, and performs namÃ¢z by signs. For, covering one's awrat parts is more important than the other precepts of namÃ¢z . [As it is seen, even a person who is naked has to perform namÃ¢z in its proper time and must not omit it. Hence, it must be understood that those who do not perform their namÃ¢z because of laziness and who do not pay their debts of omitted namÃ¢z are under a great sinful responsibility]. A person who is naked asks for something to cover himself from others who are with him. If they promise him, he waits until nearly the end of namÃ¢z time. Also, when there is no water, a person who expects water has to wait for water until nearly the end of namaz time, and can make a tayammum only after waiting that long. He who has the money must buy water and something to cover himself. A person who cannot find anything besides a covering less than one-fourth of which is clean is permitted to perform namÃ¢z with the covering or by signs sitting; but with a covering one-fourth of which is clean he has to perform it standing, in which case he will not perform the namÃ¢z again later. If a Muslim on a long-distance journey can find water only for drinking within one mile, (if there are no clean clothes available) he performs namÃ¢z with the covering that has najÃ¢sat on it, in which case he will not have to perform it again later. It is not permissible for a settled person, that is, a person who is not a musÃ¢fir , to perform namÃ¢z in a najs covering. It is possible and necessary for him to clean it. For it is strongly probable to find water in a city. If it is known for certain that there is no water in the city, the settled person also can perform the namÃ¢z with a covering with najÃ¢sat on it and can make a tayammum . It is written as follows in the fifth volume of Radd-ul-mukhtÃ¢r : There are four cases concerning people's looking at one another and seeing one another: A man's looking at a woman; a woman's looking at a man; a man's looking at a man; and a woman's looking at a woman. And there are four kinds of a man's looking at a woman: A man's looking at a nÃ¢mahram free woman, at his own wife and jÃ¢riyas, at his eighteen relatives who are permissible for him to look at, and at others' jÃ¢riyas . It is harÃ¢m in all the four madhhabs for men to see nÃ¢-mahram women's bodies other than their faces, inside and outside their hands. It is harÃ¢m also for men to look lustfully at the faces of girls (nÃ¢-mahram to them). This prohibition pertaining to seeing applies to castrated, sterilized men, too. It is harÃ¢m to castrate a man. Castrating an animal is permissible only when it is intended to fatten it. It is harÃ¢m for men to look at the part of a man's body between his navel and knees. It is permissible for them to look at his other parts without lust. It is permissible for a man to look at his wife and at his own jÃ¢riyas from head to foot even with lust, and also for them to look at him likewise. [A man's awrat parts are between his navel and his knees in three madhhabs. In HanafÃ® Madhhab the knees are awrat . The navel is not awrat . In ShÃ¢fi'Ã® Madhhab the navel is awrat and the knees are not. In MÃ¢likÃ® Madhhab none of them is awrat . It is stated in MizÃ¢n-ul-kubrÃ¢ that according to an authentic report in MÃ¢likÃ® and HanbalÃ® Madhhabs a man's awrat parts are only his saw'atayn . This nonexistence of ijmÃ¢' (consensus among the four madhhabs) delivers male Muslims who expose their thighs nonchalantly from the danger of disbelief. Also, the Shiites' awrat is their saw'atayn only]. A man, if he feels secure of lust, can look at the heads, faces, necks, arms, legs below the knees of the eighteen women who are harÃ¢m for him to marry by nikÃ¢h and of others' jÃ¢riyas . He cannot look at their breasts, at spaces under their arms, at their flanks, thighs, knees, or upper parts of their back. These parts of women are also called ghalÃ®z , that is, qaba awrat . Women should wear garments ample enough to cover these parts of their body in such a way as their shapes will not be discernible during namÃ¢z and in mixed company. JÃ¢riyas can perform namÃ¢z without covering their parts that are permissible to be seen. As it is seen, there are two kinds of women's dressing in Islam. Firstly, free Muslim women cover all their bodies completely except their faces and hands. It is written in HalabÃ®-i-kabÃ®r in the section dealing with the shrouding of the dead: "Men cover themselves with an outergarment termed a qÃ¢mis and women with a dir . Both these garments cover the body from the shoulders to the feet. The qÃ¢mis has a collar with a slit from the shoulder to the foot and the dir is open between the breast and the foot." As is seen, Muslim women wore coats as they do today. Wearing (black outdoor overgarments) called charshaf became the vague afterwards. An ample and long mantle, a thick headcover, long stockings cover better than today's charshaf. It is written on the fourth page of Durar-ul-Multaqita, "The SharÃ®'at has not commanded a certain type of covering for women." The second one is the dressing of a jÃ¢riya (the woman servant captured in war), who does not have to cover her head, hair, neck, arms or legs (below knees) when among men. It has been observed with regret that some women who bear Muslim names have abandoned the Islamic lady's dressing and fallen for the habiliment for jÃ¢riyas or servants. In order to mislead Muslim women, disbelievers and zindÃ®qs say, "In the beginning of Islam women did not use to cover themselves. In the Prophet's time Muslim women used to go out with bare heads and arms. Later, jealous men of religion ordered women to cover themselves. So women began to cover themselves afterwards, and became like ogres." Yes, women used to go out without covering themselves. Yet, later the sÃ»ras of Ahzab and NÃ»r were revealed in the third and fifth year of Hegira respectively, whereby Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ commanded them to cover themselves. It is written in MawÃ¢hib-i ladunniyya, "On the way back from the GhazÃ¢ (Holy War) of Khaiber, one night RasÃ»lullah sall-Allahu 'alaihi WA sallam admitted Safiyya radÃ®allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ anhÃ¢ , one of the captives, into his tent. The SahÃ¢ba did not understand if Safiyya was honored as a wife or served as a jÃ¢riya . But they felt ashamed to find it out by asking RasÃ»lullah so that they could do the reverence and service due to (the Prophet's) blessed wives. 'We'll understand that she has become a wife if she goes out of the tent in a covered manner and is escorted behind a curtain tomorrow morning,' they said. So, seeing that she was escorted out behind a curtain, they realized that she had been honored as a wife." As it is seen, in RasÃ»lullah's time free women used to cover all their bodies. It would be known that a woman was not a slave but a free lady by her covering herself all over. It is permissible for a person who is secure of lust to touch someone's part which he is permitted to look at. A hadÃ®th-i sharÃ®f declares, "Kissing one's mother's foot is like kissing the threshold of the doorway to Paradise." On the other hand, whereas it is permissible to look at a nÃ¢mahram young woman's hand and face, it is not permissible to touch her or to shake hands with her even if one is secure of lust. Committing fornication with a woman or touching any part of her with lust, even if by forgetting or by mistake, according to the HanafÃ® and the HanbalÃ® Madhhabs causes hurmat-i musÃ¢hara . In this case, it becomes eternally harÃ¢m for the man to marry this woman's daughters or her mother by blood or in virtue of nursing and also, for the woman to marry the man's son or father. [If hurmat-i musÃ¢hara takes place between a man and his daughter, the nikÃ¢h between the girl's mother, that is, the man's wife, and the man does not become annulled. The woman cannot marry someone else. The man has to divorce the wife. It becomes an eternal harÃ¢m for him to remain married with the woman. If hurmat-i musÃ¢hara happens between a man and his mother-in-law, the son-in-law will have to divorce his wife. The son-in-law cannot marry this woman again eternally (BezzÃ¢ziyya) ]. It is not permissible for girls to touch nÃ¢mahram men even if they confidently rely on themselves. If they touch with lust, hurmat-i musÃ¢hara takes place. Girls' and old people's lust is their hearts' inclination. It is permissible for a person who trusts himself to shake hands with an old woman or to kiss her hand if she is old enough not to arouse lust, but it is better not to do so. It is permissible for men to stay together at a lonely place ( halwat ) and to go on a travel [e.g. on hajj ] with their eternal mahrams. According to the Tarafayn, halwat [staying together at a lonely place] with a woman who is not one's eternal mahram is harÃ¢m . If one stays with her along with another muttaqÃ® man or one of his eternal mahrams or one's wife, it is not harÃ¢m . Hurmat-i musÃ¢hara does not happen by staying in halwat or by looking at any part of hers with lust except when it is at the front. While telling about being an imÃ¢m , Ibni ÃbidÃ®n writes, " Halwat happens also when there are more than one nÃ¢mahram women. A very old woman and an old man can go on a journey and can stay alone [AshbÃ¢h] . Halwat with one of the eighteen women who are one's eternal mahram is permissible, yet it is makrÃ»h with one's foster (milk) sister [who and one have been suckled by the same woman], with one's young mother-in-law or daughter-in-law when fitna is likely. It is not permissible to talk with a young nÃ¢mahram woman without necessity." It will not be halwat staying alone in a transportation wagon, shops, and places that are open to public like mosques, since the insides of such places can be seen from the outside. Two different rooms of one house are not counted as one place. According to ImÃ¢m-i AbÃ» YÃ»suf rahmatullahi ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ 'alaih , those needy, enslaved, lonely women [employees and civil servants] who have to work for a living at such jobs as baking bread, laundering [and others that require uncovering their parts that are not their qaba awrat ] can bare their arms and feet as much as their work requires. It is permissible for men to see them or to look at them without lust when work requires. And it is written in Ni'met-i IslÃ¢m (in chapter on hajj ), Bahr al-fatÃ¢wÃ¢ and Ali Efendi's fatwÃ¢, wife's sister and uncle's or brother's wife are nÃ¢mahram women, too. It is harÃ¢m also to look at their hair, head, arms, and legs. During mutual family visits, it is not permissible for the men and women to sit in the same room, to behave cordially towards one another, to joke with one another, or to make merry. At places where men's and women's sitting in the same room is customary and where this harÃ¢m is slighted, in order to prevent offence and hostility among relatives, women can sit in the same room or eat with their male relatives for a short time, but they must be covered. The talks must be serious. Utter care must be taken that the talk should last short and be rare and especially that they should not be alone in the same place. True and well learned Muslims who know and obey their dÃ®n should never sit together like that. We should not dispute with ignorant people or insist that our dÃ®n commands so, but we should try to abstain from harÃ¢ms by making excuses pertaining to worldly affairs, by talking softly not to offend our relatives. A male slave also is a nÃ¢mahram man to his female possessor. Seeing once is permissible for a judge when deciding a case in the court of justice, for witnesses when giving evidence, for a person who is to marry a girl, even if lust is likely to happen, and for a doctor, for a nurse, for a circumciser, for a person who does enema (clyster) as long as necessary. It is permissible for a sick person to have himself clystered. It is written on the four hundred and seventy-eighth page of the fifth volume of Durr-ul-mukhtÃ¢r , "It is important sunnat to have one's son circumcised. It is Islam's symbol. If the people of a city do not have their sons circumcised, the KhalÃ®fa fights them. There is not a certain age of circumcision for a child. The best time is between seven and twelve years of age." When performing circumcision, it is customary to repeat the TakbÃ®r-i 'Iyd together loudly. Those who are not circumcised catch various diseases. French books describe them under the name "Affections du prÃ©puce." On the five hundred and fifty-eighth page of HadÃ®qa and in its chapter about afflictions incurred by the eyes, it is written that it is permissible for girls to learn and teach science and medicine on condition that they will observe the SharÃ®'at. Girls must be educated and trained as obstetricians and gynecologists. Women must be shown to women doctors. If a woman doctor cannot be found one must take one's wife to a male gynecologist, if her illness is dangerous or very painful. The awrat parts of Muslim women to one another are like the awrat parts of a man to another man. If a woman is secure of lust, her looking at a nÃ¢mahram man is like a man's looking at another. The book Jawhara says that it is like a man's looking at those women who are his mahram . But it is harÃ¢m for her to look at him lustfully. Non-Muslim and renegade women's looking at Muslim women, (as well as their paternal and maternal uncles, if they are renegades), that is, Muslim women's showing themselves to them, is, like their showing themselves to nÃ¢mahram men, harÃ¢m in three madhhabs . They cannot look at Muslim women's bodies. It is permissible in the HanbalÃ® Madhhab. When those parts of the body leave the body that are not permissible to look at, it is still not permissible to look at them even if the body is dead. After a woman's hair and other hairs, toe-nails [not finger-nails] and bones leave her body, they cannot be looked at. It is not harÃ¢m to look without lust at the reflections on mirrors or on water of those parts of women that are harÃ¢m to look at. For in this case not they themselves but their visions are being seen. [Their reflexions or pictures are not they themselves. Seeing them (their reflexions or pictures) does not mean seeing them. Looking at their pictures or at their visions in movies or on television is like looking at their images in mirrors. They are all permissible to look at without lust, but harÃ¢m to watch lustfully or to look at those visions of theirs that will arouse lust. Also, it is harÃ¢m to listen to their voices. Surely, there are people who look at them lustfully. It is harÃ¢m to draw, to publish, to take pictures that arouse lust and are harÃ¢m ]. It is not permissible but harÃ¢m to look at the awrat parts of women, even without lust, behind glass, with any kind of spectacles, through water, or at a woman in water. It is permissible to look without lust at a woman dressed in clothes not so scanty as to stick on her body. It is harÃ¢m to look at a woman even without lust who is clad in a dress the qaba awrat parts of which are scanty. It is harÃ¢m to look lustfully at a nÃ¢mahram woman's underwears. It is harÃ¢m to look lustfully at those parts of hers that are not her qaba awrat and which are covered tightly, scantily. As it is harÃ¢m for women to go out without covering themselves and by decking themselves out, so it is harÃ¢m for them to enter likewise any place where there are men not mahram to them. And it is even more sinful to enter a mosque with uncovered awrat parts. A place where there are people with open awrat parts or where harÃ¢m is committed is called majlis al-fisq (sinning party). It is written in BazzÃ¢ziyya that it is not permissible for Muslims to attend or to allow their wives to a majlis al-fisq , that is, a place where sinners gather together, without necessity. Women who have Ã®mÃ¢n must cover those parts of theirs that are not qaba awrat, such as head, hair, arms, legs, for Muslims must dread harÃ¢ms lest they will lose their Ã®mÃ¢n . [Some people, whose sole interest is pleasure and entertainment, do not hesitate to mislead others into mischief and disasters in order to attain their pleasures by saying, "It is something annoying one to see a woman covering herself like an ogre. On the other hand, it gives relief and pleasure to look at an ornamented, beautiful girl or woman in free attire. It is sweet, like watching or smelling a beautiful flower." Looking at a flower or smelling a flower is sweet to the soul. It causes the soul to recognize the existence and the greatness of Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ and to obey His commandments. Looking at a nice-smelling, ornamented, and freely-dressed girl, on the other hand, is sweet to the nafs. The ear does not take any pleasure from colors, nor does the eye from sounds. For they do not sense these things. The nafs is the enemy of Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢. It will not hesitate to do any sort of evil whereby to attain its pleasures. It will violate human rights and laws. Its pleasures do not have an end. Looking at a girl will not satisfy it. It will desire to meet her and to practice all its pleasures. It is for this reason that all civil codes curb the eccentricities of nafses . Excessive desires of the nafs drift people into misery, diseases, family disasters, and afflictions. In order to prevent these disastrous situations, Allahu ta'Ã¢lÃ¢ has prohibited girls' dressing freely and being close to men not related to them, alcohol, and gambling. People who have been enslaved by their nafs flout these prohibitions. So they censure the books of 'ilm-i-hÃ¢l written by scholars of Ahl as-Sunna and prevent young people from reading these books and attaining salvation. As is understood from all the aforesaid facts, it is sinful for women and girls to go shopping at market-places and stores. Muslims have to protect their daughters against these sins. Otherwise, they will lose their Ã®mÃ¢n and become disbelievers. Enemies of Islam misrepresent whatsoever is destructive to Ã®mÃ¢n as national customs in order to spread disbelief.] ( Full Answer )
Praise be to ALLAH. When Allaah, may He be exalted, and His Messenger (sAaws) enjoin something, it is obligatory for the Muslim to say, "We hear and we obey," and to hasten to carry out what has been enjoined upon him. This is what is required by faith in ALLAH. ALLAH (SwT) says (interpretat…ion of the meaning): "It is not for a believer, man or woman, when ALLAH and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error" [al-Ahzaab 33:36] In an authentic hadith collected in Sahih Al-Bukhari, the Messenger of ALLAH (sAaws) said: "All of my nation shall enter Paradise except for those who refuse." They said: "O Messenger of ALLAH, who would refuse?" He (sAaws) said: "Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise and whoever disobeys me has refused." ALLAH (SwT) The ALMIGHTY Says: "And tell the believing women to lower their gaze, and protect their private parts and not to show off their adornment except for that which is plainly apparent, and to draw their veils all over their bodies (Juyoobihinna) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their womenfolk (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigor, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet (creating noise) so as to reveal what they hide underneath of their adornment. And O you Believers, turn together to Allah, that you may attain Bliss." [Surat an-Nur Ayah 31] ALLAH (SwT) also Says: "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known and thus not to harassed/harmed. And ALLAH is Ever OftâForgiving, Most Merciful" [Surat al-Ahzaab 33:59] In a narration mentioned in the classical sharh of Sahih al-Bukhari - Fet-hul-baari from Ibn Abi Haatim via 'Abd-Allaah ibn 'Uthmaan ibn Khaytham from Safiyyah that explains: "We mentioned the women of Quraysh and their virtues in the presence of 'Aa'isha (rAa) and she said: "The women of Quraysh are good, but by ALLAH I have never seen any better than the women of the Ansaar (women of madina), nor any who believed the Book of ALLAH more firmly or had more faith in the Revelation. When Surat an-Nur was revealed - "and to draw their veils all over their bodies (Juyoobihinna)" - their menfolk came to them and recited to them what had been revealed, and there was not one woman among them who did not go to her apron, and the following morning they prayed wrapped up as if there were crows on their heads. It was narrated from 'Urwah that 'Aa'isha (rAa) said: The Messenger of ALLAH (sAaws) used to pray Fajr and the believing women would attend with him, wrapped in their aprons, then they would go back to their houses and no one would recognize them. [ Narrated by al-Bukhari, 365 & Muslim, 645 ] It was narrated that 'Aa'isha (rAa) said: "The riders used to pass by us when we were with the Messenger of ALLAH (sAaws) in ihraam (the dress code for pilgrimage), and when they drew near to us we would lower our jilbabs (cloaks) from our heads over our faces, then when they had passed we would uncover them again. [ Narrated by Abu Dawood, 1833; Ibn Maajah, 2935; classed as saheeh by Ibn Khuzaymah (4,203) and by al-Albaani in Kitaab Jilbaab al-Mar'ah al-Muslimah ] It was narrated that 'Aasim al-Ahwaal said: We used to enter upon Hafsah bint Sireen who had put on her jilbab thus and covered her face with it, and we would say to her: May ALLAH have mercy on you (due to her age), ALLAH says: "And as for women past childbearing who do not expect wedlock, it is no sin on them if they discard their (outer) clothing in such a way as not to show their adornment" [an-Nur 24:60]. And she would say to us: What comes after that? We would say: "But to refrain is better for them" (i.e. not to remove the outer garments). And she would say: That is confirming the idea of hijab. If an elderly lady of the sahabah held fast to the rulings of hijab in a time whereby she had been granted a concession due to her age, yet with that she remained adamant on maintaining the full hijab, how then an indeed with what excuse can we in this day and age in times of mass corruption and fornication justify any excuse not to surrender to our Lord in obedience and protect our honour, chastity and innocence by undertaking the hijab? Indeed the matter is very clear for one who seeks ALLAH and the best resolve on the day of judgment: "And We have also sent down unto you the remembrance (i.e. the Qur'an) that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought" [Surah an-Nahl 16:44] "It is not for a believer, man or woman, when ALLAH and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any say in their decision. And whoever disobeys ALLAH and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error" [al-Ahzaab 33:36] And ALLAH Knows Best. Updated Answer Wearing Hijab is an Islamic requirement (and also Jewish and Christian requirement) and is a command by God and Prophet Mohamed (peace upon him). The Hijab comes from the command by religion to wear cloth that covers the whole body, including hair, head, and neck, except face and hands. That clothing: . should not be so tight to describe the woman body or sexy parts, and . should not be so transparent to make the under cloth visible. Failing to obey God commands and His prophet guides is sinful. Refer to the related question below for more information. Answer Absouletly not a sin. Though it is advised so. no this answer is incorrect (above) Allah asked to wear it so you have to or else you will get punishement (in hell) There is no written rule about it in Quran.

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 meanin…g 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.

A hijab is a scarf that female Muslims wear. It derives from the verb meaning covering by the means of clothes.
Modesty is the major significance of the hijab. Many people think that Muslim women wear the hijab just a symbol to show that they are Muslims, but this is not the reason to wear the hijab.. wearin the hijab means we should guard ourself by being modes, not revealing much from our body and not seek …so much attention. Hijab does not only mean cover the hair, but also to wear clothes that are not tight or transparent or that reveal other parts of the body except for hand and face.. it is seen that those who reveal inapproprite parts of the body is seeking attention in contrast to modesty. there are however many other ways to look at the hijab... some women believe by wearing the hijab they become more of an equal to males, as they are not dealt with based on their physical appearance and beauty, but rather for how they think and their actions. some wear hijab because they choose to and strongly believe in it's importance in Islam, while others are forced to wear it from their parents...

Updated Answer Wearing Hijab is an Islamic requirement and is a command by God and Prophet Mohamed (peace upon him). The Hijab comes from the command by religion to wear cloth that covers the whole body, including hair, except the face and the hands. That cloth: . should not be so tight to descr…ibe the woman body or sexy parts, and . should not be so transparent to make the under cloth visible. The part of the cloth covering the head (and hair) but not the face is called Hijab. In addition to the fact that wearing Hijab is an Islamic requirement and is a command by God and Prophet Mohamed (peace upon him), the following are other logics and benefits of wearing hijab: . Men would not judge the woman by her appearance but would tend to evaluate her by her personality, character, and morals. . Wearing a hijab helps in preventing indecent acts or thoughts. . When wearing a hijab, one feels more modest, having more self respect and confidence. . People actually evaluate the one wearing the Hijab based on who she is and not on how beautiful she is. . by wearing hijab, one doesn't worry about her my hair if not beautiful or needs more cosmetics. . Hijab provides Muslims with an identity. They don't have to tell people they are Muslims. It shows. . By wearing hijab, the woman is concealing her sexuality but allowing her femininity to shine. . On top of the above, wearing hijab is something that is pleasing to Allah and in return one earns blessings from wearing it. Quran says (meaning English translation): "And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! so that you may be successful.

But they all so do it because men cannot judge her by her appearance but are forced to evaluate her by her personality, character, and morals. Wearing a hijab is not a responsibility, it's a rite given by the creator, who knows us best. And it's something every woman should strive for. Muslim woman's mostly cover themselves in front of men who are not direct relatives (brothers, fathers, and uncles are ok) to prevent indecent acts or thoughts. When you're wearing a hijab you feel modest, and you feel like you're covered up. You have more self respect and confidence in your self that you don't need to care about how you look. When you wear a hijab people actually evaluate her on who she is and not on her beauty. And without a hijab then you're all worried that my hairs ugly or I have to straighten my hair and ECT. Hijab allows you to be who you actually are. And it lets you know who your real friends are. People who are friends with you because of the way you look aren't real friends. And people who judge you by your personality are true friends, because people can change looks but they don't really change personalities, and hijab can change all that. Hijab provides Muslims with an identity. They don't have to tell people they are Muslims. It shows. When a Muslim woman wears a hijab she is covering her beauty. And many women's who wear the hijab are filled with dignity and self-esteem and are happy to be identified as a Muslim woman. By wearing hijab the woman is concealing her sexuality but allowing her femininity to shine. Aside from that, it is pleasing to Allah and in return we earn blessings from wearing it. . Answer Wearing the hijab is only a cultural issue. The Quran suggests that the wives of the Prophet were required to cover themselves and remain out of the sight of other males, but it seems to only require modesty on the part of other women (eg 24.031 and 33.59). In the words of Karen Armstrong ( Islam: A Short History , 2000): "The Quran prescribes some degree of segregation and veiling for the Prophet's wives, but there is nothing in the Quran that requires the veiling of all women or their seclusion in a separate part of the house. Muslims adopted these customs some 3 or 4 generations after the Prophet's death, copying the Greek Christians of Byzantium, who had long veiled and segregated their women in this manner." Answer Moslems believe that all women are expected to wear the Hijab, not for cultural values only (excessive heat and sun rays in Arabia, the cradle of Islam, where women and men alike had to cover their skins a lot so that they don't get burnt). If we go today to places in South of Morocco, East of Algeria and North of Mali, we'd find, for instance, that both men and women wear long garments, mostly in light blue or white because these colors are believed to shun these people from the aggressive rays of the sun. Hijab is not the black garment that is worn in Iran or Gulf countries that takes off any identity from a woman. Hijab is supposed to be a cover that makes a woman not provocative 'mutabarija' and with 'afaaf' modesty. Women in Islam are supposed, hence, to cover their body and wear nice, light colored clothes; they are not allowed to wear the traditional 'khelkhaal' of feet necklace that makes noise while women are walking- that is supposed to be a sign of provocation. Finally women are supposed to cover their hair because hair is supposed to be half of their beauty. And in anyway, in some countries where Islam was originally born (Lebanon, Syria, Egypt), women are so exquisitely beautiful that it was necessary that they cover their hair.. the same way Jewish women used to cover their hair like in the film Ben Hur or the way the Christians used to cover their hair, like Holy Mary and other Christian women even until 1920 in America. Weren't American women and Western women supposed to wear a hat as a sign of humility? So, the issue of the scarf or veil in Islam is initially a simple one. Unfortunately, so many extremists whether from the Eastern world or the Western world have totally misunderstood its meaning and reason and have applied it in a total wrong way (like black niqaab) which initially was NEVER asked in Islam. In the prophet's time, Peace be Upon him, Moslem women dressed modestly and that's about it. No hadith refer to how tight their scarves were.. not like today. And even in the Holy Koran, the hijab is alluded to in vague words.. it is stated that women should cover their feet, cover their bosoms, and cover their beauty except what is already apparent.. and it is in that phrase 'except what is apparent' that so many interpretations were made. Islam, being a religion that cherishes modesty par excellence, all it required from its women is to be modest in dress. And guess what, unlike what most Western people focus on, this requirement was made from men as well. A moslem man is not allowed to wear Gold except for his marriage ring, can only wear garments that cover the part from the belly till the knees and cannot wear silk. Moslem societies being patriarchal.. again the cultural element here.. the requirements of men's dress have been overlooked, even from the Western Orientalists. ANSWER: because the women and the girls that have reached puberty are not allowed to show their beauty to men and big boys unless it's their husbands they are allowed to show it to ladies and girls. Hijab (modesty) is prescribed for men AND women (Quran 24: 30-31). It's cultural reasons that over-emphasize modesty for women. Hijab has sometimes become referral to head cover for women only, but this is literally wrong. I pray this clarifies. In peace.. ( Full Answer )

It looks like a scarf that covers head, hair, ears, and neck (but not covering face).

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!

[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.

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.
