( سورة النور , An-Noor, Chapter #24, Verse #32), "And tell the BELIEVING WOMEN to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and PROTECT THEIR PRIVATE PARTS (FROM ILLEGAL SEXUAL ACTS) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful." (In Mohsin-Khan translation)

The phrase, BELIEVING WOMEN to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and PROTECT THEIR PRIVATE PARTS (FROM ILLEGAL SEXUAL ACTS), above implies that muslims must not become prostitutes or to expose their physical bodies by any means publicly.
