Question: Assalamu Alaikum I am very confused by the ruling on jilbab. Does it havr to be one long dress such as an abaya? Or is loose clothing that covers everything except the head and face sufficient? What abouth the hadith where women were told tp come out fpr Eid and those who who did not have a "jilbab" were instructed to borrow one? Does that mean it is not sufficient to wear anything that covers everything but that a specific garment -jilbab- must be worn?

On this please refer to the answer linked below:
