The Islam religion has five fundamental requirements: Ramadan fasting, believing that the only.
God is Allah and that Prophet Mohammed is Allah's messenger, praying five times daily, giving.
to charity, and making a pilgrimage to Mecca if possible. .
The word "hijab" comes from the Arabic word "hijaba". Hijaba means to hide from view or.
conceal. Even though the wearing of the hijab is not one of the five fundamental requirements for.
the Islamic religion, many Muslim women say they wear the hijab because Allah has told them to.
do so. "O Prophet, tell your wives and daughters and the believing women to draw their outer.
garments around them (when they go out or are among men). That is better in order that they may.
be known (to be Muslims) and not be annoyed- (Qur'an 33:59) Another reason for the hijab is.
the issue of modesty. The women want to be known for their skills and intelligence as opposed to.
being evaluated by their looks and sexuality.
