Bible verses regarding head covering or Hijab. It clearly states that the woman needs to cover up her hair.

King James Bible CORINTHIANS 11:1-18

11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
11:2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
11:6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
11:8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
11:11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
11:12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
11:17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse
11:18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

    It is interesting that head covering for Christian women is as a sign of authority, and to proclaim (and remind her of) her difference and submission to her husband in God’s order of things, and because of the angels. The head covering for Muslim women (and Jewish and some Hindu and Sikh women too, I’ve discovered) is for modesty. As a non-Muslim, I see these verses together with the writings of other religions to point to the design of one God who is over all and whose will for mankind has been interpreted by men sometimes differently, but, please notice, it has always been interpreted and observed.

    some Christian women cover for modesty in addition to the sign of submission:)

    i cover my hair for modesty.
    also as a sign of self respect and submission to god.
    it actually keeps my head cool in summer believe it or not!,i wear it tiechel style in the warm parts of the year and the traditional hijab style in winter..there are so many benefits to covering ones hair as a lady,number one being a sign of honored and protected femaleness,and on a more shallow note (lol),it does keep the hair from being damaged by the elements ;).

    Accoding to the bible a woman ought to wear something on her head in time of worship or prayer. the bible explains that if the woman has a long hair it is her glory not the the glory of her Husband, so when she worships or pray she must cover her glory before GOD.

  7. In many circles, women don’t often wear hats, so the host of the should be sure to spread the word if garden hats are desired. Start the fun off right with unique clawfoot tub shower gifts. The most common applications with this tiling method include the following: Flooring (including patios), bathrooms, backsplashes, kitchen walls, and much more.

You people must know the bible came before The NOble Qur’an as a guide to humanity at the time and since the laws were taken advantage of so when the holy prophet (peace be upon them all) came with new guided laws and revelations to stay and guide us til the end of days. His coming was foretold in the bible as ye over look..
