Wearing Hijab is one of Quran`s Reciting Etiquettes

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
Is a woman permitted to recite the Quran without wearing Hijab although she is in state of ablution?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all of his family and companions.

A woman is permitted to recite the Holy Quran without wearing the Hijab(Islamic covering)because it is not a condition for recitation. Yet, wearing it is recommended in order to be ready for the prostration of recitation, since a woman must cover all of her body save her face and hands so as for her prostration to be valid similar to the conditions that render prayer valid. In conclusion, a Muslim should be keen on reciting the Quran on steady basis. And Allah knows best.
