Why do some women cover themselves with veils and long robes?
A woman wears Abaya (long robes and veils) to cover herself in a modest way as per Allah’s Command. Quran has laid down this requirement to help women, to save them from molestation, to guard their modesty. It is said in the Holy Quran: “O Prophet! Tell your wives & your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known as (respectable woman), so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Quran 33:59)
