    saying, Hijab is exclusively for Prophet wives is a big blockmindedness! If indeed you understand the verses that oder the wives of Prophet to wwar Hijab is as well ordering Muslims women to do the same. And the way you adress our beloved Prophet SAW shows who you are! We seek refuge from Allah SWT from being like you!

    i’d lyk 2 refer d writer bak 2 d follown verses u quoted. Chptr33v59 whc says.’O Prophet!tel ur wives n ur daughters n d women believers 2 draw deir cloaks(veils)al ovr deir bodies…’ mind u women believers r mentioned here,so dey did nt copy d wearing of veil 4rm prophets wives as u put bt rathr it ws ordained by Allah upon d women believrs in general.dis is a dres code given 2 dm by Allah. In d same chptr33v33 Allah forbids dm 2 display dr bodies,i quote.”And stay in ur houses,n do nt display urslves like d@ of d times of ignorance,…”d times of ignorance is time wen women xpose dr bodies 2 attrct men. D secnd chptr24v31 says,i quote.”And tel d believin women 2 lower dr gaze n protect dr private parts n nt 2 show off dr adornment xcpt only d@ whc is apparent(like palms of hnds,face or feet)n 2 draw dr veils al ovr juyubihinna(i.e dr faces,bodies,necks,bosoms etc) n nt 2 reveal dr adornment xcpt 2 dr husbands….” to protect dr private parts’ means 2 abstain 4rm illegal sexual acts. If u undrstnd d word ‘khamr’ in arabic,d arabic context in d Quran says.”Wal yadribna bi khumurihinna ala juyubihinna…” Here d word ‘khumurihinna’ is a word borrowd 4rm ‘khamr’. We al knw khamr has 2 do wth alcohol,sth d@ twist brain wen consumed. Ds word is borrowd 2 indicate d@ women shud use veil 2 covr dmslves. D word khamr here refer 2 veil,whc women use 2 cover dr head.Xample of d word khamr is in anodr verse in chptr2v219,i’l quote in Arabc context,”Yas’alunaka anil khamri wal maisir”(Trnsltn)”They ask u(O muhammad s.a.w)concernin alcoholic drink n gamblin…”. In anodr chptr5v90,khamr ws also mentiond as alcohol. So pls do nt conclude wthout deeply researchn on d Quran. Do nt tek such negative responsibility on ur head 2 mek women dres wrngly bcz Allah wil hold u accountable. In chptr17v53 Allah say,”And Say 2 my slaves d@ dey shud say dose words d@ r d best,…”. On ds verse i’d lyk 2 draw curtain,May Allah gv us useful knowledge d@ wil benefit us,ameen.

    ibrahim A,

    I refer to the openning statement of this your write up which made awrong assertion as follows:

    “Although long seen as the most distinctive emblem of Islam, the veil is, surprisingly, not enjoined upon Muslim women anywhere in the Quran”

    For correction PLS refer to QUR an CHAPTER 33 (s.Ahzab) VERSES 59 and you will see where Allah SAW commands the use of veils by women to cover their body.
