Khumur is a veil or kind of hijab which in pre Islamic era the women of Medina practice to cover head but the two ends of khumur were tied behind the head which does not cover the front chest and ears were exposed. Placing the khumur over bosom is an order from Allah to Muslimah, by doing this the women ears and upper body remain covered. At early time of Islam the women of “Alansar” were considered as model role for other territories as the practising of proper hijab wearing started in Medina.
Holy Quran says as follow
“…and not display their beauty except what is apparent, and they should place their khumur over their bosoms…”
Muslim women should wear the long scarves where the integrity of her body parts should be safe guarded. Now a days modern hijabs are being produced without shariah compliance where the materials like see through are being used and the purpose of hijab goes incomplete. Muslimah should give some due care to dress code and follow accordingly to live in this world with the guidance of Islamic teaching.
