Hijab in History

Rabu, 10 November 2010


Our commitment to Allah SWT is to trust that He knows what is best for us and that what He has commanded is what is right.
So, what do the Quran and Sunna say about hijab? There are two ayat of the Quran that deal with hijab. These are Surah an-Nur ayah 31 and Surah al-Ahzab ayah 59. Let's look at what these ayat say, and how the Prophet (sAas) has explained them.
Surah an-Nur ayah 31 says:
And say to the faithful women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to display their beauty except what is apparent of it, and to extend their headcoverings (khimars) to cover their bosoms (jaybs), and not to display their beauty except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their womenfolk, or what their right hands rule (slaves), or the followers from the men who do not feel sexual desire, or the small children to whom the nakedness of women is not apparent, and not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments. And turn in repentance to Allah together, O you the faithful, in order that you are successful
Surah al-Ahzab ayah 59 says:
O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the faithful to draw their outergarments (jilbabs) close around themselves; that is better that they will be recognized and not annoyed. And God is ever Forgiving, Gentle.
Together, these two ayat lay out seven commandments for Muslim sisters:
  1. "to lower their gazes"
  2. "to guard their private parts"
  3. "not to display their beauty except what is apparent of it"
  4. "to extend their headcoverings to cover their bosoms"
  5. "not to display their beauty except to their husbands or their fathers..."
  6. "not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide"
  7. "to draw their outergarments close around themselves"
As we can see the profit of Hijab, also in the past age, we can se so many ladies wearing Hijab. Maybe that was not called Hijab, just headscarves, Bonnet, Hat, or Chaperon it was depended on the age and periode.

Their Headdresses are profitable for keeping their honour as a manner lady. That was same with Hijab benefit. The manner lady also covering their face when she turn outside. Muslimah also keeping their honour with hijab also, isn`t right?

I will give you some picture of the hijab in any periode.

This both picture is describe the women when Biedermeier periode, It was Louis XVIII being a king in Paris.This is Romantic era, when a ladies turn use beautiful and elegant design, start from the head untill shoes.
 Biedermeier fashion with big sleeves
 This headdresses called Hennin, was populer at Gothic era when 1200-1480 B.C. Hennin be eqquiped with face covering which is made from luxurios fabric.


And this picture describe about women in Renaissance era, Brand new design was started in Italy. The headdresses is bonnet typical combine with a hat.


And the last picture is describe about women style when Victorian Queen Era in England. I love whole style in victorian age. The furniture, costume, crafting, and many more i cant mention.
So, why does woman choose the minim cloth for their style, if the manner style is covered??? Now, i think we as moslema should be proud of our consistance wearing manner style. Be proud ladies of our style as a moslema!
