Although men do not wear headscarves, their hijab is parallel to women’s. Both men and women have equivalent obligations and duties to follow in regards to clothing, when socially encountering the opposite gender and guarding one’s purity until the marital vows. Islam by no means promotes or advocates sexism as it clearly states in the Qur’an that both the men and women are equal with comparable rights.
There are no double standards in Islam – brothers do not get to look at filth entertainments that disrespect women, they do not get to flirt and they are meant to cover their aura with loose clothing and not be posing in tight shirts showing off their bodies….
*The ULTIMATE Gender Equality is one where BOTH men and women are modest.
