The Three Veils...
Covering of the Bosoms is a Qur'anic Command...
The Qur'an Reveals:
"And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their Sash clothes [khumur (pl.: s. khimar = Sash cloth)] over their bosoms..." Surah Nur (24), Verse 31.
Covering of the hair, while praying or prophesying, is a Biblical Command:
The First Epistle To The CORINTHIANS; chapter 11, verses 5 and 6.
Covering of the Face is neither a Qur'anic nor a Biblical Command:
children of Adam! wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer" - Qur'an 7: 31
None but men of understanding will receive an admonition...
