Why Does a Muslim Woman Wear the Veil (Hijab)?
Muslims say that Hijab is to cover women like when we cover a lollypop from flies, or it's like when we cover a treasure and hide it from thieves. But the truth of the matter is that the Quran ordered women to cover themselves as way to differentiate between the free and slave women, between those who are believers and the unbelievers. Read Quran 33:59 "O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful." Sahih International Translation.
