    The word hijab is very wide and has been made "obligatory for women. Allaah is the One Who has commanded women to cover their adornments, including the face, bosom and all their adornments. This has been enjoined upon women as a protection against abuse and temptation. That is because women are the focus of desire, and the focus of what those who are tempted look at. So if a woman uncovers her beauty she will provoke desire, and people will become attracted to her and will follow her."

    And naqab (not nikab) is the veil that covers the face according to the following verse
    “…and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms)…”[al-Noor 24:31]

    The veil (khimaar) is that which comes down from the head and covers the face, and the jilbaab is an outer garment with which a woman covers herself, leaving no part of her body showing.
