The word hijab (حجاب) is an Arabic word meaning barrier or partition. Islam promotes modesty and decency and seeks to minimize immorality within society and Hijab, amongst other things, helps attain this goal.
Hijab is not just about outer appearances; it is also about noble speech, modesty, and dignified conduct. These righteous manners are also required of men. Muslim males are also required to dress in loose and unrevealing clothing in order to maintain their modesty and dignity.
Muslim women are required to observe the hijab in front of any man that they could possibly get married to . The Hijab is not required in situations where there are only females and certain male relatives present. This means that hijab is not obligatory in front of the father, brothers, grandfathers, uncles or young children.
Some Muslim women wear full-body garments that only expose the eyes, although there is no Quranic text requiring this extreme. Some cover every part of the body except their face and hands. Some believe only their hair or their cleavage is compulsory to hide, and others do not observe any special dress rules.
