Quran does not suggest hiding of face.

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too

Submitted by Mazhar (Pakistan), Sep 13, 2007 at 07:52

Quran e Majeed nowhere suggests that a muslim woman should hide her face. Quran advises men and women not to focus their vision {بصر}.

In the presence of "Niqab" the eyes of a man and woman will focus in each other. Only focussing of vision on the opposite sex escites the cell. In case of open face the vision will not focus but scatter. Should a muslim woman hide her face or "Zeenat" the place/point which attracts attention.
