What Does The Word Hijab Means?

It's literally meaning,  is defined as: "Veil, cover, conceal, screen or separation."  
 
Therefore the outward expression of the word can come in the form of many examples concerning Muslim Women Clothing (depending on a Muslim woman's belief or understanding of the word).   In the Quran Allah (Azza wa Jal) says: "surat Al-Ahzab, (verse 59), what can be translated as, "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the woman of the believers to draw their Jalalib all over their bodies. That will be better. That they should be known so not to be annoyed.  And Allah is ever oft-forgiving, most merciful."
