Collection of the Qur'anic Verses About Hijab
Hijab means a barrier or cover, that is, aurat or body cover for Muslim women. The use of the hijab is manifested in the form of covering the fabric throughout the body except for the face and palms, starting from head to toe. Hijab is an important part of Islamic law. It is not just an identity or a mere fashion, but more than that the hijab is an obligation for every Muslim woman who has been established by Islamic law. It is not a situational obligation as some people who view the veil are only Arabic culture, nor is it an obligation for certain groups such as pesantren children, and so on. Because the hijab is an obligation for every Muslim who has pledged his faith.

The Shari'a on the hijab shows that Muslims are taught to respect themselves. By covering the genitals, a Muslim woman means having respected her own glory as a woman. Because something valuable will never be left open. Hijab is not meant to limit women. This is precisely how God protects women, frees them from the evil eyes of men who are full of lustful eyes and forces them to look at women with more respect.

Wearing the hijab will also be self-control for a Muslim woman to always strive to display noble morals. He will think twice when it comes to wanting to commit immorality. Because the hijab is not just a shift in terms of appearance, but also a shift in heart, words, and deeds.

And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.

يَٰنِسَآءَ ٱلنَّبِيِّ لَسۡتُنَّ كَأَحَدٖ مِّنَ ٱلنِّسَآءِ إِنِ ٱتَّقَيۡتُنَّۚ فَلَا تَخۡضَعۡنَ بِٱلۡقَوۡلِ فَيَطۡمَعَ ٱلَّذِي فِي قَلۡبِهِۦ مَرَضٞ وَقُلۡنَ قَوۡلٗا مَّعۡرُوفٗا

وَقَرۡنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجۡنَ تَبَرُّجَ ٱلۡجَٰهِلِيَّةِ ٱلۡأُولَىٰۖ وَأَقِمۡنَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتِينَ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَأَطِعۡنَ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥٓۚ إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ لِيُذۡهِبَ عَنكُمُ ٱلرِّجۡسَ أَهۡلَ ٱلۡبَيۡتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمۡ تَطۡهِيرٗا  

And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger.

O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

Those are some Qur'anic verses about the hijab. Hopefully, it will be useful and will further strengthen our faith and piety as Muslim women to always maintain obedience to Allah.
