Hi, I'm new here and I was wondering why women should cover up so much aside from it being said in the scriptures. Correct me if I'm wrong, women wear the veil because they don't want to show their body too much to men. I understand a man's mentality as I am a man too. I know how men find women attractive and all that. But, shouldn't men cover up too. I mean, if a men can get sexual thoughts or be attracted to a woman, a woman can be attracted to a man too. Shouldn't men cover up their arms as some women find muscles attractive. Shouldn't men cover their faces and hair too? Why should only women have to sacrifice? That's just my point of view. Feel free to agree, disagree and share your thoughts.

Decent dress is what is required. But the so called face veil, or even the extreme Burqa is not part of Islamic teaching, they are pre Islam originated. These dress were used for selling female slave purpose, as the buyer only can see the goods once paid. But than again the ugly looking female don't want to be seen around anyway, so cover up is the surprise method for the unwary suitor.

Oh btw, I personally tend to attract to women with hijab. The smell of their dress attract me for some reason.
