Veil/Head Scarf/Modesty

(6) Veil/Head Scarf/Modesty: Detailed Points

Rig Veda: 8:33:19. Cast down thine eyes and look not up. More closely set thy feet. Let NONE SEE WHAT THY GARMENT VEILS, for thou, a Brahman, hast become a dame.

Bible: 1st Corinthians 11:5. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her HEAD UNCOVERED DISHONOURETH her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

Quran: 24:30-31. Say to the believing MEN that they should LOWER their GAZE(eyesight) and guard their MODESTY: that will make for greater purity for them: And God is well acquainted with all that they do.

And say to the believing WOMEN that they should LOWER their GAZE and guard their MODESTY; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should DRAW their VEILS over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards God, that ye may attain Bliss.

Quran: 33:59. O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing WOMEN, that they should CAST their OUTER GARMENTS over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And God is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful.
