The veil is an article of clothing that is worn for many purposes, usually covering some or all of the head or face, and much of the body as well. Different veils can be worn simply for fashion or for religious purposes. In Islam, the veils are worn exclusively by the women, because it is stated in the Koran that women are to cover any part of their body that shows beauty, so the hair is covered as well. This principle is called hijab. The common meaning of this term is, simply put, "modest dress for women", which basically means to cover up most of the body, usually excluding only the hands and face. Sometimes veils will cover the entire face, leaving only a space for the eyes.

Below are some quotes from Koran about women's clothing

Today we find the Muslim community most divided on one subject: the veil or hijab. Despite the clear rulings ofSharia on this subject, many people claim that the order for women to cover all but their faces and hands is not found in Islam.

In this brief treatment, we will cite proofs from the source texts of Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh) from which the obligation of veiling is derived.

The Arabic word for "veiling" is hijab. Lexically it means "cover", and in Islam it means two things:

Woman's clothing such as the head-to-toe garment specifically called jilbab and khimar.

Separation of the places where men and women respectively congregate.

Obligation of Hijab as Stated in Qur'an

"O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (jalabib) close round them (when they go abroad)..." (33:59)
"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 veils over their bosoms..."(24:31) "…only that which is apparent" applies to women’s face and hands.

"... And when you ask of them (the wives of the Prophet) anything, ask it of them from behind a veil. . ." (33:53) Al-Qurtubi said in commentary of this verse: "The consensus of Muslims is that the genitals and backside constitute nakedness for men and women, as well as all of woman except her face and hands, but some disagreed about the latter two." This means the consensus of Muslims included them in the definition of her nakedness based on verse 33:59 and the hadith cited below.|| ||

Persepolis I: Even thought it was obligatory for young women to wear the veil in school they did not fully understand the meaning of the veil. This often lead to "mistreating" the veils.
