In The Name of God The Benificent The Merciful


  Modesty (Purdah)

24/30. Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest. That is purer for them. Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do.


24/31. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their head coverings over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands fathers, or their sons or their husbands’ sons, or their brothers or their brothers’ sons or sisters sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigour, or children who know naught of women’s nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.


24/60. As for women past child bearing, who have no hope of marriage, it is no sin for them if they discard their clothing in such a way as not to show adornment. But to refrain is better for them. Allah is Hearer, Knower.

Note:The Quran was revealed by God over a period of 23 years to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Therefore the Ayaats (verses) can be fully understood if we learn the context, situation and period when they were revealed. The Arabic of the Quran is pre-Quranic in a few cases some words can be translated in more than one ways.Therefore no translation can do complete justice in conveying the beauty of the original language or convey the comprehensive meaning of the classical words.
