Hijab - Extent of Covering
  • Question:

    I need to find out when doing hijab what all needs to be covered? Is the neck and ear lobes included? What guideline does Quran and Hadith give us?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    For a sister wanting to follow the Islamic hijab, she will cover neck and ear-lobes as they are included in the injunction. This is the interpretation of the verses of Surah Nur and Surah Ahzab by majority classical commentators of the Quran. (Refer to Classical Tafsir Texts)

    And Allah knows best.
