Sajid Hameed

In a Muslim society, the code of veil provides a basis for a separate sphere of activities for women. Since it demands some kind of segregation, it defines separate spheres for men and women and consequently generates the debate on whether women are allowed to go out of their homes and whether they can work. In this paper, we will study the code of dress and veil from the said perspective and will attempt to understand related commandments, whether they demand separation of men’s and women’s spheres and how they were practiced during the era of the Prophet (peace be on him) and his Companions.
