Benefits Of Hijab


Benefits of Hijab

The hijab is a religious head covering that is worn by Muslim women. It generally conceals the neck and hair, and has a veil for covering the face. Most Muslim women wear the hijab, while refraining from wearing tight clothing. Donning the hijab and also generally observing a modest Muslim style of dressing offers these benefits.

1. Represents purity

The hijab is regarded like an indication of dignity and purity. It highlights Muslim women as chaste and pure women. It also sets the wearer apart from immoral behaviors linked to women who wear immodestly. Actually, the hijab acts like a screen between chaste Muslim women and the world’s evil.

2. Protects from male harassment

Most men do not make lewd gestures or whistle when a woman wearing a hijab passes by. In fact, men view the hijab like a sign that says off limits and thus do not approach such women. Muslim women by and large have a low chance of being exploited for their femininity and beauty in contrast with other women.

3. Places focus on intellect

The hijab also benefits Muslim women by forcing people, particularly men, to go past the outer appearances and focus on the women’s intellect. Rather than assessing woman for her mind, the society usually assesses her based on physical traits. Many people are truly surprised when they discover that a Muslim who wears a hijab is articulate, intelligent and educated.

4. Eliminates competition amongst women

People in western nations are known for sacrificing health and financial savings so as to have expensive plastic surgery with an aim of meeting unrealistic standards of beauty. However, through wearing a hijab, Muslim women can go about their normal duties without worrying about impressing other people.

Wearing a hijab does not have demerits and those who wear it have more strength and confidence as women become less mindful of their physique and appearance.

    Ok so it is the sole responsibility of the female to have to dress uncomfortably so that males won’t whistle at her? Why not teach the men to change their behavior in the first place and learn to respect women period no matter what they are wearing.

      see, men have been asked to respect women as well. on the other hand women are asked to do their part, its not like women are forced with all kinds of restrictions. Now the way some women do not follow it, many men do not respect women too.

      besides, women who cover do not feel uncomfortable it, what you feel comfortable in doesn’t necessarily have to be comfortable for another. I cover, and i love wearing burkha or maxi dresses and hijab.

      Hijab is not uncomfortable, If you ask a woman who always wears hijab. It’s not just about whisteling its also about harrassment. When girls show their outer beauty they are judged instantly. No matter how you think or who you are. People will always judge on the first look. Also I don’t mean to be rude but the guys who don’t want women to wear hijab are pervert little boys

    Well, it’s clear that muslim women should always beware to affear in a prescribed recommanded way so as to allow men to be able to differentiate between the women being muslims & of those being opposite to them. Also that, believe me, for an example, the hijab should be thick for an excellent protection from transferrence dresses. If i ever made a mistake please somebody should correct it. Enormous thanks respectively.
