I think the hijab is a beautiful gift from Allah (swt). Entrenched in the idea of the hijab is modesty. I believe hijab is both a physical covering and a mental covering. Men and women must aspire to be more modest in the way that they conduct themselves - in their speech, conduct, dress. It’s not just for women. At the same time, the physical hijab is a beautiful choice. No one should be forced to wear it. That defeats the purpose. Insha’Allah I hope to don it soon.
