11. Why has Islam made Hijab a necessary requirement for all the beleivers? Mention the 3 types of Hijab in your answer giving examples wherever applicable.
• Allah (SWT) has made Hijab obligatory upon us firstly as a means of identity. Just as the Christians have a cross as their identifier, the Jews a skull cap, the Sikh’s a turban, in Islam the Hijab is also an identifier for our faith. Hijab as an identifier refers to the ‘Physical Hijab’ that is worn by women.
• Hijab being a form of identity is mentioned in verse 33:59 of the Holy Quran. (Bonus marks for those who mention this verse).
• Allah (SWT) wishes that we should be ambassadors for our faith in the way that we act with others. Therefore it is necessary that we observe the ‘Social Hijab’ in our interaction with other people. This means not acting in any contradictory to the true message of Islam and maintaining modesty in our interaction with non Mahram’s. This will ensure that we firstly protect ourselves from corruption and secondly that we will portray the correct image of Islam to others.
• The third type of Hijab is that of “Taqwa” which is where we are ever conscious of our role in upholding the true message of Islam, for example in standing up against oppression, doing good to others, teaching etc.
• This Hijab also refers to that consciousness we should have that Allah (SWT) is always watching us which acts as a necessary covering for us in protecting us from committing sins.
• The Hijab of Taqwa is mentioned in verse 7:26 of the Holy Quran. (Bonus marks for those who mention this verse).
• Additional marks for any relevant examples of the 3 types of Hijab
