What are the reasons why Muslim women wear hijab?
The first reason basically is
obedience of Allah’s command. The results of this obedience
are felt in this world when unwelcome looks are warded off,
and are expected in the life of the hereafter when Allah’s
favor will be enjoyed by those who readily followed His
commands. For many non-Muslims and even some Muslim
reformers, hijab is a sign of oppression. But on the other
hand, it is possible to find highly-successful Muslim women
in Western societies who choose to wear the hijab proudly.
They see it as a sign of their dedication to Allah (as
opposed to submission to men). Meanwhile, a lot of Muslim
women also believe that it is their social responsibility to
wear the hijab so that all Muslim women will be regarded
equally, rather than judged based on their appearance.
