UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE HERE'S VEIL, HIJAB, Khimar AND THE VEIL
Fashion is a form of Muslim women loose overalls long and covering the entire body except the hands, feet and face. Some claimed that every hijab is a headscarf, but not all of the hijab headscarf.
Derived from the word meaning hajaban objects cover / barrier. Hijab according to Quran means to cover in general, can be a divider curtain, mosquito net, ironing barrier, and the barrier or other protective cover. Indeed, some say the meaning hijab headscarf.
In the Qur'an also called khumur. Khimar an upper garment that covers the head, neck, and extends up to cover her breasts from behind and from the front (including cover collarbone). Khimar not tied to the neck like a scarf, because if this is done, it will clarify the shape of the curve of a woman's chest. So khimars should protrude straight down from the head to the whole chest was covered.
Khimar often called the veil, but in fact different. Khimar is what it can cover the head, neck and chest without covering the face, while the veil is not recommended in Islam. Because the veil only cover the head and neck only, not the entire khimars. Veil still showing curves at the neck and chest.
