What are the religious benefits of adhering to hijab?


The moral decay and deterioration in our social, cultural and family structure is a direct result of our negligence of the commandments of Allah. One such example is our abandoning the commandment of hijab. Unfortunately, many of us, influenced by the West, have convinced ourselves that hijab is a cultural practice which has nothing to do with Islam. The prevalence of this belief has led many sincere Muslims to doubt or question the reality of hijab and its place in Islam.

In this book, Dr. Ismail Memon Madani makes it self-evident through ayas of Qur’an, detailed explanations from the famous Tafsirs, and the ahadith that hijab is indeed an Islamic commandment which has been observed by the wives of the Blessed Prophet (Peace be upon him), the Sahabiyat (May Allah be pleased with them), the pious predecessors and our whole Umma for the last fourteen-hundred years. The book details the requirements of hijab are according to the Qur’an and Sunna. This book also highlights how hijab is the most effective tool in maintaining peace and purity in society and how abandoning it leads to promiscuity and shamelessness.

Hijab, is one book that should be on the bookshelf of every Muslim home. This book is highly recommended for those who are eager to learn about the Islamic position on hijab and understand the wisdom behind its golden commandments.
