Ask The Imam Question and Answer

803 It is not uncommon to see some young Muslim ladies with head coverings yet other parts of their bodies, like their chest, are quite revealing.

On the other hand, there are many older traditional ladies that don't cover their heads yet in every other aspect, including their mannerisms, are most decent. I would value your learned and considered opinion?
Islam does not merely order women to cover their heads with the Hijab. Perhaps more importantly, it teaches them to show real decency and honour in the rest of their clothing and in their behaviour. Therefore, covering the head, only to wear tight, revealing clothing is totally against the teachings of our religion. On the other hand, decent mannerism must be coupled with wearing the Hijab, to cover the head. Woman cannot refuse to wear it on the basis that their manner and behaviour is their Hijab.
