How it could be while Adam and Eve (peace be upon them), the first couple of the world, had hijab. In the Bible, you read: “And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.”

In another verse of the Bible is mentioned that they tried to make themselves covered after becoming naked: “Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.”[ii]

In the holy Qur’an, it is mentioned that Adam and Eve (peace be upon them) have lost their hijab because of disobeying the rule: “Thus he {Satan} brought about their fall by deception. So when they tasted of the tree, their nakedness became exposed to them, and they began to stitch over themselves with the leaves of paradise. Their Lord called out to them, ‘Did I not forbid you from that tree, and tell you, ‘‘Satan is indeed your manifest enemy?’’ ’ (22)”[iii]

In Islamic doctrine the reason of clothing and hijab is mentioned like this:

1. Covering nakedness

2. Adornment[iv]

3. purity[v]

4. virtuosity and purification of the heart[vi]

5. deliverance from Satan’s temptations[vii]

And it is not merely for women, but for both males and females.[viii]

We should consider that the eyes are the gates of entering feelings and emotions. It is your brain which analyzes that information and your heart which gets the true meaning of feelings and emotions and you are yourself the only person who controls this gate of entering emotions. When you give the control of your eyes to Satan (‘‘Satan is indeed your manifest enemy?’’ ’ (22))[ix], you lose the best gifts that your creator has bestowed them to you (your purification).

The holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) stated:

Looking passionately at non-mahram (females other than your family) is one of the poisonous arrows of Satan. Whosoever closes his eyes of non-mahram for fearing Allah, He bestows him such a faith that he will feel its sweetness in the heart.[x]

[ii] Genesis 3:7

[iii] فَدَلَّاهُمَا بِغُرُورٍ ۚ فَلَمَّا ذَاقَا الشَّجَرَةَ بَدَتْ لَهُمَا سَوْآتُهُمَا وَطَفِقَا يَخْصِفَانِ عَلَيْهِمَا مِن وَرَقِ الْجَنَّةِ ۖ وَنَادَاهُمَا رَبُّهُمَا أَلَمْ أَنْهَكُمَا عَن تِلْكُمَا الشَّجَرَةِ وَأَقُل لَّكُمَا إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَكُمَا عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

[iv] “ ‘O Children of Adam! We have certainly sent down to you garments to cover your nakedness, and for adornment. Yet the garment of Godwariness—that is the best.’ That is [one] of Allah’s signs, so that they may take admonition. (26)

[v] Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do.(30)

قُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَيَحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَهُمْ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَزْكَىٰ لَهُمْ ۗإِنَّ اللَّـهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ

[vi] When you ask [his] womenfolk for something, do so from behind a curtain. That is more chaste for your hearts and theirs.

وَإِذَا سَأَلْتُمُوهُنَّ مَتَاعًا فَاسْأَلُوهُنَّ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَطْهَرُ لِقُلُوبِكُمْ وَقُلُوبِهِنَّ
