The Significance of Hijab in Islam



Hijab means to cover the body and head from women except the parts which are essential to move the body, recognize the way, and eat the food. So, in this context the parts which are not necessary to cover, are hands, foot, eyes, nose, and mouth. 

However, if the woman is ensured that she will manage the tasks then she can veil her outer parts which have above discussed. Since Islam has strongly emphasized the concept of decency and modesty in the interaction between opposite sex, so it strictly orders to veil the parts which persuade wrong thinking. Allah (SWT) says:

 “Say to the believing women that: they should cast down their glances and guard their private parts (by being chaste)…”

Thus, Allah (SWT) orders women to conceal the parts which stimulate the male bodies. Likewise men, women are also ordered to veil their parts.

 “Say to the believing men! They should cast down their glances and guard their private parts (by being chaste). This is better for them.”

However, women are not allowed to thoroughly veil their faces while performing the pilgrimage. Thus, if you are not able to do the main pilgrimage (Hajj) then you have to distract your devotion into performing the Umrah. So, cheap Umrah Packages 2019 will take you more close to Allah (SWT). Allah’s Apostle told that Umrah is the atonement of all previous sins. Surely, Umrah is the non-mandatory Ibadah but in Islam, it has incredible meaning.

A massive amount of pilgrims make sure their arrangements in the month of Ramadan as they grasp the means of this sacred month because Allah (SWT) bestows His sanctifications upon the earth throughout the Ramadan. Moreover, the Holy Quran was started to reveal in this holy month, thus Allah (SWT) much likes Ramadan rather than common days. Since all the bad spirits are arrested and put into the dungeons in the month of Ramadan, so there are very fewer chances to astray the man into wrong ways.



As pilgrims are in the compassionate state for the duration in the sacred month of Ramadan, so Allah (SWT) surely accepts their pray and regards with huge reward even equal to Hajj. Once Allah’s Apostle asked a woman why she had not performed the Hajj with her family, so she replied that her family had only two camels in which one was set for the journey of Hajj by her husband and son while the second one was being used for domestic essentials.

At that, Allah’s Apostle suggested her to perform Umrah in the month of Ramadan to make the virtues equal to Hajj. So, if you want to get the Hajj’s equal reward, then Cheap Ramadan Umrah Packages 2019 will increase your virtues. However, there are some conditions which pilgrims must have their knowledge. Therefore, before going to perform Umrah it is compulsory for pilgrims that they are not allowed to perform Umrah unless they fulfill their family amenities. 

Women are also ordered to wear such garments which could not attract the wrong thinking. “O Prophet! Say to your wives, your daughters, and the women of the believers that: they should let down upon themselves their jalabib.”

Not only Islam emphases on Hijab but all religions suggest to veil the parts of bodies which encourage Satan to divert the attention of men into some wrong ways. Women are not allowed to show their private parts in front of other women except during the child birth. 

It is narrated by hadith that “May Allah have mercy on the Muhajireen women. When Allah revealed the words “and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms)”, they tore the thickest of their aprons (a kind of garment) and covered their faces with them.
