Q: Is it allowed for a woman to recite the Quraan without covering her hair? Is there any Hadith?
A: To cover the head when reading Quran is a strongly emphasized etiquette of the Quran. It is disrespectful to leave the hair open when reciting Quran Shareef. In salaah, it is haraam to leave the head open; recitation of the Quran is an act rendered in salaah, hence leaving the head open for this act, though not haraam, is definitely makrooh (abominable).
