Question: Assalam o alikum. As being a muslim i want to know correctly that is hijab is the requirement of islam or niqab ? I strickly do niqab but i think in my coming life i will face these kind of problem to wear hijab but not niqab so i want to know that if i wear hijab instead of niqab so is it permissible in islam ?
Answer:

 Islam does not mandate the niqab; there is no evidence in the Qur'an or Sunnah for enforcing it. 

What we mentioned above is the view of the majority of the commentators of the Qur'an including Imam Ibn Jarir; it is also the view of the majority of scholars.
