JILBAB AS THE LEGAL LANGUAGE AND STANDARD OF PERSONAL CONDUCT IN SOCIETY
DOI : 10.24269/ls.v4i2.3064
Language is a tool or instrument in reflecting an idea, thoughts, ideas, desires and
wishes from one person to another person. It cannot be imagined how human life would
become without language. Surely we will not be able to develop and pass down the
culture or noble values of our nation's culture to the next generation, as is the case with
animal life. Animals do not have the ability to speak, so their ability to build civilization
is also lost. In addition, without the ability of human language cannot think
systematically and orderly.
The hijab is one of the legal language that applies and reflects the culture or behavior
that applies in society. But the meaning, along with the passage of time feels a change
in meaning. This is the entry point for the author to elaborate the veil as a legal
language and standards of personal behavior in Indonesian society.
How is the concept of hijab in legal language that is often used by Muslim women or
girls under the shadow of the terrorist and fundamentalist Islamic issues by certain
groups or those who do not like it and the hijab as a syar'i obligation for Muslim
women so that it sticks as a symbol (character) for good Muslim women.
