Asalamualaikum wrt wb,

It is often heard in non-Muslim circles, and amongst some Muslims, that there is no proof for the hijab in the Quran.  This is very much incorrect.

In fact the main proof for the hijab is the verse from Surah Noor:

“And say to the believing women to lower their gaze, and guard their private parts, and cover their necks and chest with their khimar (head covering).”

The khimar is what the Sahabiaat women used to cover their hair. The verse is affirming that they must wear the khimar and in addition, cover their necks and chest with it.

The Hijab is mandated by the revelation from Allah, Lord of the Universe, and there has never been any difference of opinion about this in the Ummah, it is the consensus of the Ummah.

The only difference the Sahabah had in interpreting the verse was:  Must the Hijab cover the whole body, or are the hands and face excluded?

The Jumhoor or majority opinion, is that the face and hands do not have to be covered.

May Allah make the (loose) hijab beloved to our sisters, and protect our sisters from any harm.

And Allah knows best.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.
