The Ustadhy website will talk about what’s the hijab, and what’s the importance of the hijab.
What is the hijab?
The hijab doesn’t mean, restricting the woman from her freedom, Islam anchorage the woman to become more mature and successful in her business and life by wearing the scarf.
Hijab doesn’t mean saving the head only, the hijab it’s meant to save the heart and the mind and eye, Islam must man and women see each other by lower gaze, and means save the tongue from talking ill and backbiting, hijab the hands from unlawful money, and saving from any physical contact with non-mahram.
The mahram means the person who can touch the women and vice versa, as dad, brothers, sisters, mother, uncles, aunties, breastfeeding sister or brother, wife, brother’s sins, sister’s sons, and husband.
Why is the hijab a duty for women?
The hijab is commanded from Allah for all Muslim women, the hijab protects the woman and makes her safe, Islam won’t appear her beauty for non-mahram, the hijab must be physically and mentally.
The hijab makes the women’s body, not for all people, only can control her body, by covering it to other people and can appear her hair and arms and her legs to her father, brother, uncle and appear any part of the body to her husband.
The hijab makes the men when dealing with the women who wear hijab deal with their minds not deal with their needs and desire.
For if the girl won’t veil herself, then her hair ought to be interrupted, however, if it’s sleek for a lady to possess her hair interrupt or to be smooth-shaven, she ought to wear a veil, for a person ought to not have his head veiled since he’s the image and reflection of God, however, the girl may be a reflection of man.
Indeed, the person isn’t made of a lady, but the girl from a person. Neither was man created for the sake of lady, however lady for the sake of man.
For this reason, a lady has to be compelled to have a logo of authority on her head. (1 Corinthians 11: 6-10)
The shape of the hijab in Islam:
The woman should cover all her body except her hands until the rest and face including her neck and hair, also the feet should be covered.
The clothes should be loose, don’t draw her body, and not make attention to others.
