Definition of Jilbab by Ibn Hazam

‘Allamah Ibn Al-Hazam writes:

In Arabic language, the language of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), Jalbab is that outer sheet which covers the entire body. A piece of cloth which is too small to cover the entire body could not be called Jalbab. 

(Al-Muhalla, vol. 3, p. 217)

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a
    article writer for your blog. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back
    to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested.
    Many thanks!
