  1. Before I illustrate ,why ALLAH ordered women to wear HIJAB, I would like you to read the following story , then I wii accept your judgement ! Consider and imagine yourself , somewhere in a commonplace , a beautiful lady , femme fat ale Seductive lady passed beside you, without being aware , you start today O MY GOD , how beautiful she is , you will feel yourself ready to chase , to flirt her ! Such that behaviour of course is UNACCEPTABLE. Now if we asked the same lady to wear HIJAB and to cover her seductive body with long dress , and then asked her to pass again in front of you , IAM sure that lady will not attract your attention ,and then both of you the lady and any man will not make any fault or mistake that irritates GOD , thus HIJAB is a shield for both women and men , inhibits them from any evil work , I hope I was able to explain why ALLAH has said to prophet MOHAMMED , peace be unto him , ORDER all believer females to don HIJAB , so as not to be recognised , and later no harm , no scathe will be upon them
