Does a woman have to wear a headscarf while reciting the Quran?
Wearing a headscarf while reciting Quran has no basis in the religion. It is noteworthy that in other religions women wear a headscarf (e.g Sikhism, Hinduism) to show respect. Due to many Muslims sharing geographical/cultural roots with these religions, the idea that a woman’s head must be covered to recite Quran seems to be rooted in culture. Cultures where covering the head is a mark of respect.
Culture is based upon repeated traditions. Religion however is more scientific – it is based upon evidence and in this case, there is none.
