Why do muslim woman wear hijab?

What is hijab?




"Hijab" or "ḥijāb" (/hɪˈɑːb//hɪˈæb//ˈhɪ.æb/ or /hɛˈɑːb/;[1][2][3][4] Arabicحجاب‎, pronounced [ħiˈdʒæːb] ~ [ħiˈɡæːb]) is a veil which covers the head which is particularly worn by Muslim women beyond the age of puberty in the presence of non-related adult males.

It can further refer to any head, face, or body covering worn by Muslim women or men that conforms to a certain standard of 
modesty. It not only refers to the physical body covering, but also embodies a metaphysical dimension, where al-hijab refers to "the veil which separates man or the world from God”.[5]
 Hijab can also be used to refer to the seclusion of women from men in the public sphere. Most often, it is worn by Muslim women as a symbol of 
modestyprivacy, and morality. According to the Encyclopedia of Islam and the Muslim World,modesty in the Qur'an concerns both men's and women's gaze, gait, garments, and genitalia."[6]
Hijab or Hejab refers to The Rules of covering up. It never references the specific item or items of clothing used to cover up.
