Frankly, I put on jilbab when I became a house wife—I married five years a go. I knew it before but no one in my family as strong as my husband reminded me. But now I realize that we must obey the Holy Qur’an as our guidance.
Allah SWT, states in Surah An-Nuur 31:
“And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyuubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their son,or their husband’s son, or 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 feminine 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.”
Oh, Allah… if all muslimah know about this, how lucky they are cause Allah promises that they will be successful in this life and in hereafter.
