Hijab in Islam

The present book, Hijab in Islam is a translation by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan of the authoritative Arabic book titled Hijab al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah fil Kitab was-Sunnah, by Muhammad Nasiruddin al-Albani, a famous scholar and traditionist. It was translated by this writer and initially published in condensed form in the quarterly, Islam and the Modern Age. The question of hijab (veil), or purdah in Urdu, the author tells us, has been discussed in the light of the Quran and Hadith. The following rules of hijab are applicable: the whole body, except for the exempted parts should be covered; but any veil which in itself becomes an attraction is to be avoided; garments should not be semi-transparent, dress should not be tight fitting, garments should not be perfumed, the form of dress should not in any way resemble that of men, it should not resemble that of non-believers and garments should not reflect worldly honor.
