Pearl of Wisdom

'It is reported that al-Kazim used to supplicate a lot and say, ?O Allah! Indeed I ask You for ease at the time of death and pardon at the time of the account', and he used to repeat this several times. And among his supplications were, 'The sin of Your slave is great, so graceful will be the pardon from You.' He used to weep out of fear of Allah until his beard was soaked with tears. He used to be most diligent with maintaining relations with his family and his kin. He used to visit the poor of Madina at night, for whom he would take a basket of gold, silver, flour and dates. He would deliver all this to them whilst they did not even know where he came from.'

Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha [as]
al-Irshad, v. 2, p. 231

Question : #578 Category: Dress & Clothing
Subject: What is hijab
Question: What is hijab? Can you give a straight answer
Answer: The term 'hijab' (veil; obstacle) is rather a new term used nowadays to express woman's Islamic dress code.
The traditional term used by our jurists is 'Satr' which means to cover.

Anyway, whatever you name the issue, Hijab is a social etiquette prescribed by all divine religions to provide a safe and professional relationship between the opposite sexes. It must be noted that before Islam speaks about women's covering in public, it has spoken about men's lowering their gaze.
(Refer to Surat Noor, Ayah 30-31).
