A Niqab "veil" or "mask"; also called a ruband ) is a cloth which covers the face as a part of sartorial hijab. It is worn by some Muslim women in public areas and in front of non-mahram adult males.

Religious verdicts[edit]

Niqab as obligatory[edit]

  • A fatwa, written by Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid on the Saudi Arabian website Islam QA, states:
    • The correct view is that a woman is obliged to cover her entire body, even the face and hands. The face is the most tempting part of a woman's body, because what people look at most is the face, so the face is the greatest ‘awrah of a woman. Sheikh Muhammed Salih [1]
