Significance of Hijab
Hijab is an act of pleasing Allah Almighty, Allah says in the Holy book: ‘And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc) and not to show off their adornment except what must (ordinarily) appear thereof, that they should draw their veils over their Juyubihinna.'(S24:31).This show the importance of Hijab for women in Islam.
Islam orders women to cover the whole body, hairs, face and hands. The Hijab is considering as IFFAH, TAHARA, SHIELD, TAQWAH, EEMMAN and HAYA. Allah says: ‘O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) over their bodies (when outdoors). That is most convenient that they should be known and not molested.’ (S33:59). This Ayaah shows that there is the respect of every part of body so, it should be protected
With the passage of time, woman age is increases and her attraction decreases at that moment some of the strictness is abated. The wife of Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), Ayesha (RA) asked women from the tribe of Banu Tameem: “If indeed you are believing women, then truly this is not the dress of the believing women, and if you are not believing women, then enjoy it.” By this statement she teaches them to wear proper dresses.
As a Muslim, man does not like anyone to look at his sister, wife, mother and daughter. But offering pilgrimage and prayers, it should be kept in mind that the face and hands should be uncovered and dress should not be tightly fitted, it must be loose so, no one can image the shape of the body of women.
Well the crux of the matter is that the veil as well as Hijab is one of the most important component of one’s dress so as to keep herself protected, it is an easiest way to live a life according to beloved religion Islam.
