Quran verse for covering
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I would like to read passages from the Quran that indicate the aurat of a muslim women and the need to cover oneself.

Quran verse for covering
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verse 31:
And says (O Prophet) to the believing women to restrain their gaze, and guard their private parts, and not to display their adornment except that which is displayed of itself, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to display their adornment except before their husbands, their fathers, the fathers of their husbands, their sons, and the sons of their husbands (from other wives), their brothers, their brothers sons, their sisters sons, their female associates, and those in their possession, and male attendants incapable of sexual desire, and those boys who have not yet attained knowledge of sex matters concerning women. Also forbid them to stamp their feet on the ground, lest their hidden ornaments should be displayed.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 59:
O Prophet, enjoin your wives and daughters, and the women of the believers, that they should let down over their faces a part of their outer-garments. It is expected that they will thus be recognized, and not molested. Allah is Oft-Forgiving and Very Merciful.
A believing women, who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day, should feel honored to wear the uniform of Allah, as commanded in the above verses of the Glorious Quran.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
