The khimar is an emblematic islamic veil worn by Muslim women to cover their head and chest, while leaving the face visible. A strong symbol of Muslim culture, this shawl holds considerable importance in the eyes of believers. At Mens Thobes, we take pride in offering you a selection of elegant and trendy models.
Beyond its religious dimension, the khimar is now part of a strong fashion trend. Many ready-to-wear brands specializing in Muslim fashion now offer collections at the cutting edge of the latest trends.
The Khimar, an Islamic Veil of Great Importance
The term “khimar” literally means “veil” in Arabic. It comes from the Arabic root “kh-m-r” which means “to cover” or “to veil”. This word is also found in verse 31 of Surat An-Nur in the Quran, where Allah commands women to “draw their veils over their bosoms.”
There is a subtle difference between the khimar and the jilbab, another type of Islamic veil. The khimar refers to the veil worn on the head, covering the face, neck and chest. As for the jilbab, it is a long dress that covers the whole body.
Despite claims from some Muslims that wearing the veil is not a religious obligation, the Quran and Sunnah leave no doubt as to the obligatory nature of this injunction expressed by Allah Himself.
