In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy


Secondly: Hijaab

Hijaab is a means of protection against lewd behaviour. [Allaah said]: ”And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent and to draw their scarves over themselves and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husband’s sons, their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful. [24:31]

Therefore, Hijaab is among the greatest means of protecting the private parts and due to that Allaah commanded the female believers (saying): ”And when you ask (his wives) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen..” [33:53]

[Allaah said]: ”O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [33:59]

Hijaab is among the greatest means of protection against fornication and lack of Hijaab is among the greatest means leading to the act of fornication. [End of paraphrased quote. Source: It’haaf At-tullaab Bi-Sharhi Mandhoomah Al-Aadaab’ page 90]
