O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters plus the woman of the believers to draw their cloaks (Hijabs) 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 woman) for that reason as not to be annoyed. And Allah is ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Al Ahzaab verse 33: 59).
Hijabs have been in to use for a very long time. They have been the foremost alternative of apparel for woman close to the Muslim Arab world ever since the advent of Islam. While Hijabs are considered the leading apparel for Muslim woman, there are some controversies related to various models from the early Islamic time. This is for the reason that that there are no pictures or dress available from the early Islamic era. Thus it cannot be conclusively stated whether the early Hijabs were indeed the same as the contemporary day versions. Separate from these description related issues, no Islamic scholar has stated to date that the Hijabs are not the stated shape of apparel for woman in the Holy Quran.
Most contemporary day Muslims are adamant related to the Hijabs being the same as those that were worn by Muslim woman in the Prophet’s (p. b. u. h) time. On close scrutiny, there is quite a few information available while in the history of Hijabs. According to some research, the current day Hijabs date originally back to the 1970′s when the Egyptian Muslim woman adopted them as the shape of dressing. According to this research, the Egyptian woman wore these Hijabs to demonstrate their obedience to a specific sect of Islam. Thus they are considered a contemporary invention which is in to complete adherence to the laws strictly stated in the Quran. After the Egyptian woman, these slowly filtered out to the Indonesian woman too. Bit by bit and steadily, these robes became a component of Muslim women’s wardrobe in to a vast majority of previously unaccustomed components of the Muslim world.
