Muslim Men veil in Islam

A lot of discussions about women’s veil=Hijab in Islam what about me?

It is not uncommon for non-Muslims and even many Muslims to associate the Islamic commandments on Hijab=veil with females, despite Islamic teachings ordained both men and women to put hijab=veil on.

Indeed, before addressing women and telling them to conceal their bodies, Allah Exalted He  first addresses the believers men and tell us to lower our gaze!

Allah Exalted He states in the Holy Qur’an:

“Tell, the believing men to cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is Aware of what they do.

And tell the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof….”Quran (24:30-31)

Mu’awiyah ibn Jaydah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,

“Three eyes will never see the Hellfire, an eye standing guard in the way of Allah, an eye weeping from the fear of Allah, and an eye lowering its gaze from what Allah has forbidden.”
