Pearl of Wisdom

describing the creation of Adam, said, 'Allah collected the hard, soft, sweet and sour of the earth, [making it into] clay by dipping it into water until it became pure, and then kneaded it with moisture till it became gluey. From it he carved an image with curves, joints, limbs and parts. He solidified it until it dried up, for a fixed time and a known duration. Then, He blew into it out of His Spirit whereupon it took the pattern of a human being with a mind that governs him, intelligence which he makes use of.... a mixture of clay of different colours, cohesive materials, divergent contraries and differing properties like heat and cold, softness and hardness.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 1

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).
