What does the Holy Quran ACTUALLY say about the Hijab, the Muslim headscarf? What is its purpose and benefits?
The Ahmadiyya Women Association in Sweden, celebrated World Hijab day.
The loose coat or jilbaab covers the woman’s body and hides the shape of her body from onlookers. The veil and a loose outer clothing protects a women and inculcates modesty in her.
In the Qur’an women are admonished to cover their heads and to pull their coverings over their bosoms. However the style and degree of veil varies according to the situation.
Islam stresses the relationship between body and mind. In covering the body one shields the heart from impurities.

Veiling only becomes a sign of subservience when it is used by men to prevent women from fully participating in daily life.
