“What does hijaab mean?” The most likely answers will vary from that of a woman wearing a head scarf, a veil or a loose outer garment. Hijaab, however, in the sense that it has been used in the Qur'an and Hadith, has a far wider meaning. Actually, hijaab is a set of laws governing the interaction between males and females, with rules that must be abided by both. In the minds of most people -even Arabs- that meaning has been lost due to forgetfulness or religious complacency. For the context of this article however, we will say, as most people do these days, that Hijab simply means a reference to the entire modest dress of the Muslim woman.
