Question: Please tell me the punishments in the hereafter and in the grave when you die for not wearing Hijab.
The object of Hijaab is not to just don the veil and parade the shopping malls and shows where there is intermingling of sexes. Wearing the veil is not a license for coming out of the house....Otherwise, the law for a woman is she has to remain indoors as we have quoted the Aayat previously, ‘remain indoors’...
What we have understood, thus far, is that a woman must remain indoors at all times, and only due to extreme necessity she is allowed to come out of her house, donning the veil....
and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
