What is Hijab?

By the word Hijab, we generally mean a piece of cloth that some Muslim women wear as headscarf or head cover as a veil in public or in front of the non-mahrams (the marriageable one). But literally the hijab doesn’t mean the head cover.

The word Hijab came from the Arabic three root letters and they are “ha”, “jeem,” and “ba. By adding all, it becomes the word “hajaba” which indicates the meaning of “conceal or hide from view or veil”. It’s actually a word for “barrier”. For example, a wall could be a hijab, a curtain could be a hijab. It just got coined as “Hijab” from which we refer to the meaning of covering head for a woman in Islam.

But actually, that’s not the word for head covering in the Qur’an, nor the Arabs ever used it like that. So the word for head covering is actually “Khimar”, that we find in the Quran, what we usually understand as Hijab in general. The meaning of “Khimar” includes the covering of head, and then some other parts of the body. The Arab women before Islam also used to wear khimar, but they used to drape the extension behind the back. Then the Quran came and clearly commanded to draw the khimars, their head coverings in front of them, before the chest.

On the other hand, Hijab is not just a piece of cloth covering the head and chest. Hijab is the combination of overall modesty, decency and covering, concealing or protecting our adornments which may add attractiveness and grab attention of the non-mahrams. Hijab is the veil that covers a woman's head and chest as well as the entire body except for the face and hands; also hijab is the veil or barrier that should be maintained in every aspect of a woman’s conduct in her life. Hijab in the Quran concerns to protect both men’s and women’s “gaze, gait, garments and genitalia”. So Hijab is an overall state of being, the way we look, talk, walk, act – in every aspect, even in our intentions keeping the modesty and decency is called Hijab.
