Women and Hijab
What All Does the Veil Hide?
The veil not only conceals a woman’s beauty, but also her longing eyes, tears hidden within them, the marks of slaps on her cheeks, visible signs of illness on her face, her cracked lips, the dryness of her cheeks, her physical weakness, helplessness, and disease. The veil denies a woman’s humanity, disfigures her identity, and paves the way for her exploitation. Every evil, injustice, and oppression that happens to a woman is also hidden through this veil.”
