Does Muslim woman need to wear Burqa?
Where those misguided Muslims find that a woman must wear Burqa? Allah does not command so in the holy Quran. They create so many dos and don’ts based on false or doubtful hadiths attributed falsely to prophet Muhammad.
It is not necessary for a Muslim woman to cover her head/hair or face. Command of Allah is very clear without ambiguity. However, many gullible Muslim women think that if they wear burqa or like that it is more religious because without studying the Quran properly they just listen blindly some ignorant mullahs.
And those mullahs most of the cases even enforce them to wear burqa! However, if any woman feels happy to wear burqa nobody should disturb her. If she takes it as a fashion even or whatsoever nobody has right to stop her.
[The Quran 24:31] And tell the believing women to subdue their eyes, and maintain their chastity. They shall not reveal any parts of their bodies, except that which is necessary. They shall cover their chests, and shall not relax this code in the presence of other than their husbands, their fathers, the fathers of their husbands, their sons, the sons of their husbands, their brothers, the sons of their brothers, the sons of their sisters, other women, the male servants or employees whose sexual drive has been nullified, or the children who have not reached puberty. They shall not strike their feet when they walk in order to shake and reveal certain details of their bodies. All of you shall repent to GOD, O you believers, that you may succeed.
Praise be to God (Allah).
