There are number of health and moral
benefits that wearing the veil (Hijab,
Hejab) can provide. The moral duty of
wearing the veil (Hijab, Hejab) in Islam
is an often discussed topic among
Muslim women. However, little has been written about scientific reasons
that the veil (Hijab, Hejab) is beneficial
for society. There are, in fact, a number
of health benefits that wearing the veil
can provide, as well as many
behavioral science studies that suggest that the veil (Hijab, Hejab) is
the best attire (clothes) for women.
Protecting the head is very important
from a health perspective. Results Of
medical tests show that 40-60% of
body heat is lost through the head, so persons wearing head coverings
during cold months are protected
about fifty-percent more than those
who do not. Chinese and Muslim
medical texts take this concept even
further. In the Hua Di Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor's Classic on Internal
Medicine), wind is said to cause
sudden changes within the body and
shaking, swaying and other
movements that potentially upset the
body's equilibrium; thus, creating bad health.
These texts attribute the common cold
to wind elements entering the body
and causing the typical symptoms of
sneezing and a Runny nose. In the
traditional Islamic medical texts of Al- Jawziyya, we can find numerous
references to the "four elements" of
fire, water, air and earth and how
these affect the body in adverse ways.
In particular, we are advised to stay
away from drafts and protect our heads in wind, breezes, drafts and
cold weather.
All outdoor workers should wear
some sort of head covering:
For this reason, protecting the head is
even more important in warm weather. V.G. Rocine, a prominent
brain research specialist, has found
that brain Phosphorus melts at 108
degrees; a temperature that can be
easily reached if one stays under the
hot sun for any length of time without a head covering. When this happens,
irreversible brain damage, memory
loss and loss of some brain functions
can result. Although this example is
extreme, Brain damage can still be
measured in small degrees from frequent exposure to and overheating
of the head. Bernard Jensen, a
naturopath and chiropractor states
that this is because the brain runs on
the mineral phosphorus, which is very
affected by heat. Hygienic Purposes:
All public should wear a veil (Hijab,
Hejab) or head-covering workers
serving society to ensure cleanliness
and purity. Workers in a number of
professions wear "veils" - nurses, fast food workers, and deli Counter
workers, restaurant workers and
servers, doctors, health care providers
and many more. In fact, when we
compare the number of workers who
cover their heads to the number who do not, we find that more people
probably cover their heads than do

Female Psychological Balance:

Covering the hair can also have a
beneficial effect on the female psyche as well. Studies of women being
interviewed for jobs show that there is
a high correlation between what they
wear and their perceptions of how
successful they will be in their
interviews. There are many more examples of how what we wear can
influence how we act.
Wearing a veil (Hijab, Hejab) can serve
to remind women of their religious
duties and behavioral expectations.
 It can also serve as a reminder to women that we are not only individuals, but also representatives and diplomats of our "Ummah.
