[024:028] And if you find no one therein, still enter not until permission has been given to you. And if you are asked to go back, go back, for it is purer for you. And All‚h is All-Knower of what you do.

 

[024:029] There is no sin on you that you enter (without taking permission) houses uninhabited (i.e. not possessed by anybody), (when) you have any interest in them. And All‚h has knowledge of what you reveal and what you conceal.

 

[024:030] Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts). That is purer for them. Verily, All‚h is All-Acquainted with what they do.

 

[024:031] 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 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, headcover, apron), and to draw their veils all over JuyŻbihinna (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 Isl‚m), 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 All‚h to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful.

(V.24:31) "And to draw their veils all over JuyŻbihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks, and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment..."

Narrated 'Aishah [radhi-yAll‚hu 'anhaa]: "May All‚h bestow His Mercy on the early emigrant women. When All‚h revealed: 'And to draw their veils all over JuyŻbihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks, and bosoms)' -- they tore their MurŻts (a woollen dress, or a waist-binding cloth or an apron) and covered their heads and faces with those torn MurŻts." [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/4758 (O.P.282)]

Narrated Safiyyah bint Shaibah: 'Aishah used to say: "When the Verse: 'And to draw their veils all over JuyŻbihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks, and bosoms)' (V.24:31) was revealed, (the ladies) cut their waistsheets at the edges and covered their heads and faces with those cut pieces of cloth." [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/4759 (O.P.282)]
