Whenever we hear or read the word HIJAB, the first thing that comes in our mind is WOMEN. Relating HIJAB only to WOMEN Is absolutely wrong.. In Quran, ALLAH first orders men to observe HIJAB and then to women.
“Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.”
"And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear therof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, or their brothers' sons or their sisters' sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.”
Hijab/Niqab is not only about clothes. Hijab includes moral conduct, behavior, attitude, and intentions of individual. Hijab also means lowering the gaze to avoid the sins of the eye and the heart.
The Hijab includes the way a person walks, talks, looks and thinks. All of it should be done modestly and applies to both men and women.
It (hijab) is not an Oppression, Women in Islam worth more than the diamond itself.
Dear Sisters :
Even though a man is responsible for his gaze, you are responsible for what you give him to gaze at… So let’s wear your Hijab properly and lower your gaze too…!
Dear Sisters :
Fulfill your duties towards Allah because we were created solely to worship Him. Observe the Hijab for the sake of Allah before death comes unannounced.
“Hijab is not a piece of cloth on your head it’s a way of life”

Hijab In The Al-Quran And Sunnah
The Requirements of Women’s Hijab in Accordance with the Qur’an, the Authentic Sunnah and the Practice of the Pious Predecessors.
This essay will attempt to briefly yet concisely enumerate the basic requirements regarding Muslim women’s dress (Hijaab) as stipulated by the Shari’ah (Divine Law) of Islam.
The term Hijaab, includes not only dress and covering the body, but methods of behavior before members of the same and/or opposite sex, promoting privacy for females and prohibiting loose intermingling between males and females, and thereby encouraging modesty, decency, chastity and above all, respect and worship of Allah.
Minor differences exist among the scholars regarding the actual number of the requirements because of varying methods used by them in codifying. The ones mentioned here represent the ones agreed upon by the overwhelming majority of scholars and are all solidly backed by firm evidence taken from the Qur’an, the Sunnah and the practice of the Sahabah (the Companions).
Some Claim Wearing Hijab means going back to some prehistoric period. This is not true moreover, such people fail to realize that actually dressing half naked means going back to The Stone Age…!!!
If someone criticizes your beard or your Hijab, just remember you’re here to please Allah, not the people.
Hijab is the cover we wear not only for our body, but for our heart & soul too. Hijab should inspire us to be modest in every walk of life.

acknowledges her value and
importance as a woman.
Modesty is beauty……………
Ya Allah! I turn to you and ask
you to grant me a spouse that
will lead me to Jannah and
please make me the same for
Ameen ya Allaah
If removing the Hijaab is a condition for your marriage, avoid him. Love is something that should enrich your values, not compromise them.
When Shaytan told her:
“Who would ask for your hand in marriage while you are wearing Hijaab?!
How can anyone love to marry you while you are wearing Jilbab?
Why don’t you use makeup to show your beauty?
Why don’t you attract boy’s eyes to your femininity?”
She Should reply to him:
“By wearing Hijaab, I am obeying the One Who created me And obedience of Allah has never limited my freedom but it set me free i am not a piece of candy which attracts eager eyes Hijaab preserve women dignity, that what all girls should realize!
Hijaab is the crown of my chastity It is the secret of my liberty The one who will marry me, will be proud of my purity He will cherish me for he will be pious and wise He will hold my hand and take me right to paradise”
IN SHA ALLAH.
A Beard or Hijaab doesn’t represent how religious you are. But it’s a reminder that even when your Imaan is low you still belong to Islam.
Today many Muslim women wears Hijaab. Some of them have even been wearing the hijaab, but still far from the teachings of Islam. For example, some wearing the veil, but hijaab does not cover the chest. Worse yet, she’s wearing a tight shirt and pants so that the curve of her body clearly visible.
Finally peculiarities arise, to wear the hijaab but why look attractive ?
Sometimes though there are clothes that cover the entire body, but the fiber fabric is so seldom exactly like gauze or transparent plastic, see-through cloth. As a result of the body or skin color clearly visible as if naked.
Hijaab is the veil that has to be drawn over our body, our behavior and our speech. If we observe the proper ‘physical’ rules of hijaab, yet have no constraint on our deeds and actions, and involve in haram activities, what purpose has the covering served?
Dear sisters, Hijaab must be loose and not revealing the shape of your body, it must not be see through, it must not be too eye catching and it must not resemble the clothing of a man or the non-Muslims. Wearing it is a command by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, we, as Muslimat, have to obey this rule or face punishment.
