Allah SWT also says:
يأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ قُل لاًّزْوَجِكَ وَبَنَـتِكَ وَنِسَآءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِن جَلَـبِيبِهِنَّ ذلِكَ أَدْنَى أَن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلاَ يُؤْذَيْنَ
"O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known, so as not to be annoyed." (Surah Al-Ahzaab: 59)
The Hijab distinguishes the muslim woman from other women. It shows that she has self- respect and dignity. Her body and beauty is too precious to be allowed to be seen by all. A woman of self-respect believes that she can have freedom by observing the hijab prescribed by Allah SWT. A woman in Islam is respected and honored for what she is within. Hijab protects the woman's body, dignity and honor just as a lollipop is not attacked by insects and sweet-lovers as long as it is in its cover.
And Allah knows best.
