THE AYAHS OF HIJAB FOR WOMEN…..

These are the classic ayahs commanding modesty in women, men have a separate section on modesty, not addressed here…

24:31 (Asad) And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and to be mindful of their chastity, and not to display their charms [in public] beyond what may [decently] be apparent thereof; [37] hence, let them draw their head-coverings over their bosoms. [38] And let them not display [more of] their charms to any but their husbands, or their fathers, or their husbands’ fathers, or their sons, or their husbands’ Sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their womenfolk, or those whom they rightfully possess, or such male attendants as are beyond all sexual desire, [39] or children that are as yet unaware of women’s nakedness; and let them not swing their legs [in walking] so as to draw attention to their hidden charms [40] And [always], O you believers – all of you – turn unto God in repentance, so that you might attain to a happy state! [41]

OLD WOMEN AND HIJAB

24:60 (Asad) AND [83] [know that] women advanced in years, who no longer feel any sexual desire, [84] incur no sin if they discard their [outer] garments, provided they do not aim at a showy display of [their] charms. But [even so,] it is better for them to abstain [from this]: and God is all-hearing, all-knowing.

AYAH OF HIJAB REGARDING COVERING THE BODY

33:59 (Asad) O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters, as well as all [other] believing women, that they should draw over themselves some of their outer garments [when in public]: this will be more con­ducive to their being recognized [as decent women] and not annoyed. [74] But [withal,] God is indeed much- forgiving, a dispenser of grace! [75]

AND FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE WOMEN IN HIJAB:

85:10 (Asad) Verily, as for those who persecute believing men and believing women, and thereafter do not repent, hell’s suffering awaits them: yea, suffering through fire awaits them! [6]
