Importance of Hijab in Islam

Islam has strongly emphasized the concept of the decency and modesty in the interaction. And the dress code is the part of this. Most often it is worn by the Muslims women as a symbol; of modesty, decency, privacy and morality.  One of the verses in Quran protects a woman’s basics right. “O Muhammad! Tell thy wives and daughters of the believers, women that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (outside), so that they should be known (as much) and not molested” Verse 59 of Surah A1Ahzaab


The Quran teaches us to look around us with open eyes and minds, to think and try to reach in depth in the logical conclusions. If we look at the creation of the universe, from the small and the meanest tiny atom to the huge and vast bodies in the universe, do not we see how everything is important and is properly protected and concealed with a cover aspects. As we see the skin of the human, the cell’s plasma, the roots and structures of the trees, the shell of an egg, even the whole universe are protected with each other’s and enjoying the protection of a “Hijab.


The scholarly, detailed description and attention has focused on discussion on the women dress. Many Muslims believe that basic codes mean that, in the presence of someone other than a close family member (those within the prohibited degrees of marriage), and also according to a non-Muslim woman, a woman should cover her whole body. In some cases, this is everything but the eyes, but most in other case it is required that women cover everything but the hands and face can be left open. In nearly all Muslim cultures, young girls, small in their ages are not required to wear a Hijab.


There is not a single agreed age when a woman should begin wearing a Hijab.According to the Holly Quran Surah A1Ahzaab, to wear Hijab, reason behind this is to recognize and differentiates between the Believing Women and others. It does not mean that the women in Islam should be kept apart from the world of men; on the contrary, the Quran is insistent in the full participation of women in society and in the religious practices.



This is part of the growing feeling on the part of Muslim men and women that they no longer wish to identify with the West, and that reaffirmation of their identity as Muslims requires the kind of visible sign that adoption of conservative clothing implies.For these women the issue is not that they have to dress with this code, but this is all when Imam Khomeini first insisted that all the women must wear the veil and chador in Iran, and in the response a large number of the demonstrations of the women, he modified this and agreed upon that while the Chador is not necessary, but the modest dress is. Hence till now there the women dresses in Hijab mostly and keep their dress code as so to the modest one.


The Story of the Shahada of Thâbit Bin Qays

Thabit bin Qays took part in all the Islamic battles, but could not participate in the Badr, and he tried to obtain Martyrdom (shahada) which was portended by our prophet (PBUH) but he could not obtain it until the Yamama battle which was held between Musailamah Al Khadhdab and Muslims under the khilifat of Hazrat Abu Bakr. In that battle he was made the leader of the soldiers of Ansar and Mawla Abi Hadhifah became the leader of the soldiers of Muhajreen. Khalid Ibn Al Waleed became the leader of the whole Muslim’s Army, which included Bedouins except Muhajereen and Ansar. Initially, it was felt that the Army of Musaliammah was winning as his soldiers were in the position of breaking the tent of Khalid and were able to cut the ropes and were able to tear it apart. Taking into consideration that the Muslim’s army is eaten away by the enemy, sadnessw as there and said the interpretation of which is – Muslims will never do so in the company of Allah. Then he gazed his eyes in the sky and said the interpretation of which is – O God! Excuse us (Muslims) for what has been done by them and then the fight began along with the great Muslims fighters like Al-Bara’a Ibn Malik Ansari, The brother of Hazrat Umar (Zaid Ibn Khattab). The fight was there until he was martyred.  



There is a very strange story I would like to share with you. Upon the death of Thabit Ibn Qays, he was dressed in a very expensive chain mail armor suit, a newly reverted Muslim passed by him and grabbed it for himself. After a few days, a Muslim saw Thabit in a dream and asked if he recognized him? Upon positive response he told that Muslim that one of the Muslims took his chain coat. And told her the map of the house in which he was living. And told her to tell it to the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad PBUH) that he owes so and so.


His will was changed after his death. Hazrat Muhamad (PBUH) said the interpretation of which is;


In the name of Allah in which’s hand is my life, if you are busy to remember Allah, pleasure will be with the angels to have a shake-hand with you.
