Women Who Believe

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

يَأيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لأَزْوَاجِكَ وَ بَنَاتِكَ وَ نِسَآءِ الْؤْمِنِيْنَ يُدْنِيْنَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلآبِيْبِهِنَّ

ذَلِكَ أدْنَى أن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلآ يُؤْذَيْنَ وَ كَانَ اللهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيْمًا

“(O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers [women] to draw their cloaks close round them) to cover their necks and bosoms (when they go abroad).  That will be better, that so they may be recognized) as free women (and not annoyed) and not be harmed by the fornicators.  (Allah is ever Forgiving) He forgives what they have done in the past, (Merciful) He shows mercy on them regarding that which they will do in the future;”  – Quran 33:59.
