Woman's Head Cover in Islam
"And they shall not display their beauty and ornaments, except what is apparent of it. And they should draw their KHEMAAR (scarves) over their bosoms, and shall not relax this code in the presence of other than ..." Nur24:31
The term ‘Khemaar' in Arabic means whatever clothes which may cover the head like scarf. The context of the Aya clearly shows that head covering is an issue out of discussion, perhaps because it has been already mentioned in the previous Scriptures. The Aya is asking for something more, i.e. to make the scarf or whatever women are covering their hair with, long enough to be able to draw it over their bosoms and necks.
