Re: So why then?

It comes from a "hadith"---a saying from the years after the Quran---that women should cover "all but the eyes", which some take further to mean cover the eyes too. Nothing so specific is in the Quran at all.


So, why then?

The article states that the niqab is not required by Muslim law. So, where does it come from? More information on the logic of those who promote its use would be helpful.
