Hijab and Muslim Women
The meaning of Hijab is veil, separation, curtain, or partition. Hijab is referred to the cloth used by Muslim women to cover their head or face. The literal method of Hijab proven from the reign of Prophet Mohammad is to cover the head and neck only. While these days Hijab is also termed as covering the head, neck and entire face except eyes. The Hijab is the necessary layer of respect for women. Muslim women are advised to have Hijab whenever they go out of their homes. Hijab is the only way to increase the level of respect among society. No one looks at the woman who is covered all as they think of the lady as graceful and respected. It can be understood with the example of the candy with and without cover. A candy without cover can attract numerous flies towards while candy in cover will not attract any fly. Therefore, Muslim women should always wear Hijab to avoid all problems they might face from unknown men.
Hijab is a Must in Islam
The concept of Hijab is very clear in Islam and is considered a must for Muslim women. Muslim wife must cover her entire body along with head and neck. The noble Qur’an also advises Muslim women to wear Hijab for covering their adornments from stranger men. Moreover, the Muslim women are advised to wear dresses which are loose and can cover their entire body. Covering whole body with loose clothes will enhance their beauty and grace. The noble Qur’an has laid down the principle of modesty. Modesty is supposed to be enjoined by both Muslim men and women.
The Life after Marriage
Marriage in Islam is considered as obligation and is the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad. Moreover, there are numerous verses of noble Qur’an describing the importance of marriage. One of the verse states that men and women are created in form of pairs and should live with each other in peace and love. Muslim wives are advised to stay obedient to their husbands. Muslim women must consider Hijab after marriage as well if their husband want it from them. Even if their husbands allow them not to have Hijab, they are supposed to do Hijab. This is because Hijab is the source of keeping themselves respectful and modesty. The Muslim women are supposed to give their children Muslim baby names because names are their first impression on the people of world.
Hijab in Light of Noble Qur’an
There are numerous verses of Noble Qur’an that emphasize the role of Hiab and modesty for Muslim women. Some of the verses are explained in detail.
Muslim men and women are advised to gaze and keep modesty in every situation. Sometime the situation would be content and some would be depressed.
Muslim women are ordered to do Hijab (cover their entire body, head, and neck) and are not supposed to show their beauty. But Muslim women can show their beauty to their husbands only in the absence of children and other family members. Muslims women are not allowed to marry men closed to them in relations. Moreover, the women who opt to unveil their beauty in front of strange men are supposed to be punished in the life hereafter. The noble Qur’an has made it clear that Muslim women must remain modest and cover their entire adornments.
The Muslim women can wear ornaments and enhance their beauty but they must not make it visible to men anonymous to them. The jingle of the ornaments must not be so loud to attract stranger men towards them. By this the Satin will make a way to astray Muslim men and women to the wrong path i.e. the path of fire in the life of hereafter.
