Dear Mufti sahib,
I would like to know following things in detail. Could you please let me
know in detail?
Is covering face included in Hijaab? What is the difference Hijaab and Niqaab?
Should women cover her face ? what are the punishments incurred by not
covering the face?
Your sister in Islam
Hijaab means that a lady should cover her entire body and keep it concealed from strange men. The piece of cloth which females use to cover the face is called a Niqaab. It is also incumbent upon all women to keep the face covered in the presence of strange men.
And Allah Ta’ala knows best
