Assalam Alkium,

My friend (who used to wear hijab) stopped wearing it. She said she researched the history and quran about wearing hijab and she said it came up as only the prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) wives (May Allah be pleased with them) are only supposed to wear the hijab. And that we're not suppose to. I don't agree with this.
How do I respond back to this arguement?

Aren't they meant to be examples for us to follow?

If she doesn't want to wear it, that's her choice.

She needs to wind her neck in saying it's not required by all women.

Wearing hijab is meant to identify us as Muslimahs. That is not only applicable to the wives and daughters of the Prophet (saw), also following the revelation about hijab all women adopted the hijab, the Prophet (saw) advised Asma the sister of Aisha (ra) when he saw her without hijab- she was neither his daughter or his wife.

It annoys me no end when Muslims decide not to practice/become apostate/adopt western wear/want to fit in with their non Muslim friends and start copying them and then try and refute everything we practice by saying it is not obligatory or whatever.

She doesn't want to do it fine, she's making things worse by passing her own fatwas. Is she planning on standing up and telling Allah that she took it upon herself to make this decision for us all inspite of never having studied Islamic jurisprudence in depth with a learned scholar ever?

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

W salam

The fact that she "researched" instead of enquiring from the ahlul ilm makes me agree with what sister Fozia said.

However I suggest you ask her to quote the section of the Qur'an she based her judgement on and interpret it for you. I believe she is trying to interpret verse 59 of surah Ahzab to suit her interest. The verse reads as follows:

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

I dont know how she would translate it but here is the translation of the verse according to some reknown translators:

Yusuf Ali: "O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

Muhsin Khan: "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e.screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever OftForgiving, Most Merciful."

No need to quote a hadith for her as she didnt mention searching the hadiths. If she claim not to be among the believing women mentioned in the verse, then I dont think there's need to argue further.

May Allah guide her and us to the right path.

"Whoever rejects false deities and believes in Allah has grasped a firm handhold which will never break." Q 2:256"
