On the Islamic Hijab by Martyr Mutahhari

This text attempts to explain the benefits of modest dress, the philosophic and social reasons for dressing modestly, and analyses the rules and laws involving appropriate gender interaction, explaining in details the divine command to the modest dress (hijab) from the traditional Islamic point of view using as sources the Quran, the Sunnah or customs of the Prophet of Islam and commentators of the various Muslim sects.

The fact is that the covering or its new expression, hijab, is not concerned with whether or not it is good for a woman to appear in society covered or uncovered. The point is whether or not a woman and a man’s need of her should be a limitless, free association or not.

About the Author

Martyr Murtaza Mutahhari ranks among one of the most dynamic and effective scholars of recent times. He was born in 1920 in Fariman, one of the cities of the Khurasan province in Iran. He studied under great masters of his time like the eminent scholar Allama Tabatabai and the late leader of Islamic revolution – Imam Khomeini. He was over 23 seminal works to his credit, and ranks among one of the great Muslim revolutionaryintellectuals of his time. The activities of this scholar were intolerable for the followers of the atheistic schools and they, therefore, decided to remove him from the scene by terroristic methods. Eventually they assassinated him on May 1 , 1979. His martyrdom was indeed a great tragedy to the intellectual world.
