Ladies have been given the greatest possible level of regard and most elevated status in Islam. Hijab isn’t simply a clothing regulation, it implies something more profound. For Example, it is a boundary between a man and a Muslim lady. Fundamentally, Hijab gives the Muslim lady both otherworldly and actual harmony and concordance.

 Virtues of hijab


The Hijab is a demonstration of dutifulness to Allah Tala and to His Messenger Muhammad (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم )

AllahTala says:

وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْرًا أَن يَكُونَ لَهُمُ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ ۗ وَمَن يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا مُّبِينًا

“It isn’t for an adherent, man or lady, when Allah and His Messenger have proclaimed a matter that they ought to have a choice in their choice. Also, whoever ignores Allah and His Messenger, has for sure wandered in a plain blunder.” (Qur’an 33:36)

Allah Tala also said:

وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا ۖ وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَىٰ جُيُوبِهِنَّ

“Furthermore, advise the trusting ladies to bring down their look (from taking a gander at prohibited things) and safeguard their reproductive organs (from unlawful sexual demonstrations, and so forth) and not to flaunt their embellishment with the exception of what must (commonly) show up thereof, that they should draw their cloak over their Juyubihinnah.” [Noble Quran 24:31]

Allah thought about the astonishing showcase of excellence a demonstration of obliviousness:

وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ الْأُولَىٰ

“Furthermore, remain in your homes and don’t show yourselves like that of the hours of Jahiliyeeyah(8) (obliviousness). ” (Qur’an 33:33)

2.      The Hijab is IFFAH (Modesty)

Allah made the adherence to the hijab a sign for virtue and humility. Allah says:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِّأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِن جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَدْنَىٰ أَن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا

“O Prophet! Tell your spouses and your girls and the ladies of the devotees to draw their shrouds (cover) over their bodies (when outside). That is most advantageous that they ought to be known and not attacked.” [Noble Quran 33:59]

In the above Ayah there is a proof that the acknowledgment of the clear magnificence of the lady is destructive to her. At the point when the reason for fascination closes, the limitation is eliminated. This is delineated on account of older ladies who might have lost each part of fascination. Allah made it reasonable for them to drop their external articles of clothing and uncover their appearances and hands reminding, nonetheless, that is still better for them to keep their unobtrusiveness.


Allah Tala had shown us the Hikma (Wisdom) behind the regulation of the Hijab:

وَإِذَا سَأَلْتُمُوهُنَّ مَتَاعًا فَاسْأَلُوهُنَّ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَطْهَرُ لِقُلُوبِكُمْ وَقُلُوبِهِنَّ

“What’s more, when you ask them (the Prophet’s spouses) for anything you need, ask them from behind a screen, that is cleaner for your souls and their hearts.” (Qur’an 33:53)

The Hijab makes for more noteworthy virtue for the hearts of accepting people since it screens against the craving of the heart. Without the Hijab, the heart might possibly want. For that reason the heart is more unadulterated when the sight is obstructed (by Hijab) and in this way the avoidance of fitna (fiendish activities) is especially showed. The Hijab cuts off the evil considerations and the avarice of the wiped out hearts.

4.      The hijab is Taqwah (Righteousness)

Allah says in the Quran:

يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا يُوَارِي سَوْآتِكُمْ وَرِيشًا ۖ وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَىٰ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ

“O offspring of Adam! We have offered attire to you to cover yourselves (screen your reproductive organs, and so forth) and as a decoration. Yet, the attire of exemplary nature, that is better.” [Noble Quran 7:26]

The inescapable types of dresses in this present reality are for the most part for flaunt and scarcely taken as a cover and safeguard of the lady’s body. To the trusting ladies, but the object is to shield their bodies and cover their reproductive organs as an indication of the request for Allah. It is a demonstration of Taqwah (nobility).

5.      The hijab is Hayah’ (Bashfulness)

The Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم) said:

“Every religion has a profound quality and the profound quality of Islam is haya’ (shyness).”

The Prophrt Muhammad (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم) likewise said:

“Modesty is from conviction and conviction is in Al-Jannah (Paradise).

  1. Shroud is for effective ladies and trusting ladies:

“Furthermore, advise the trusting ladies to bring down their look and safeguard their reproductive organs and not to flaunt their decoration with the exception of just that which is clear and to draw their cover everywhere (for example their bodies) and not to uncover their decoration but to their spouses, or their dads, or their significant other’s dads, or their children, or their better half’s children, or their siblings or their sibling’s children, or their sister’s children, or their (Muslim) ladies (for example their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands have, or old male workers who need power, or little kids who have barely any clue of ladylike sex. Let them not stamp their feet in order to uncover what they stow away of their enhancement. And every one of you ask Allah to excuse all of you, O adherents, that you might be effective” [An-Nur: 31]

The cover doesn’t mean limitation; all things being equal, it is a method by which Muslim society might work suitably. Islamic guidelines are novel to the best expectations of the Muslim character of immaculateness, exemplary nature, and moral uprightness. Islam shields and defends people and society from off-kilter circumstances.

The Messenger of Allah Muhammad (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم) said:

“Verily for each religion there is a trademark, and the attribute of Islam is Haya’a (unobtrusiveness, timidity, shyness).” [Ibn Majah]
