Why does Islam tell Muslims how to dress? In order to understand this issue, it is important to understand that to Muslims, everything we have belongs to God, including our bodies. Since God is our Creator, He knows what is best for us on an individual level and a societal level. So as Muslims, we don't believe that what is best for us is that we simply choose our dress, or even our behavior for ourselves based on our own whims and desires. Nothing is more beautiful, honorable and fulfilling than what God chooses for us. So when a Muslim woman wears hijab, she does not do so for the sake of anyone other than God. She doesn't do it for her father, or her husband, or even
society. When a Muslim woman wears hijab, she does so as an act of devotion to God alone. her hijab is part of her spirituality. Out of God's wisdom, he has instructed Muslim women to wear hijab and in turn, it frees them from the shackles of always trying to live up to society's ever changing standards of beauty. The Hijab allows Muslim women to be valued for their faith, character, kindness and goodness, rather than their bodies.
