Topics: Ramadan: Why would you personally wear a hijab in public but not say a burqa or chador (and vice versa)?
A burqa (also known as chadri or paranja in Central Asia ) is an enveloping outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions to cover themselves in public, which covers the body and the face. Originating from Arabic : برقع , burquʻ or burqaʻ , and Urdu : بُرقع , it is also transliterated burkha , bourkha , burka , burqua , or burqu' and is pronounced Arabic pronunciation: [ˈbʊrqʊʕ, ˈbʊrqɑʕ] . a
"O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the faithful to draw their outergarments close around themselves; that is better that they will be recognized and not annoyed. And God is ever Forgiving, Gentle."
The correct view as indicated by the evidence is that the woman's face is ' awrah which must be covered. It is the most tempting part of her body, because what people look at most is the face, so the face is the greatest 'awrah of a woman.
