In tarikh tabari they say that from Karbala to Sham the enemies of Allah pulled Sayyida Zaynab and the ladies hijab. Some say they only pulled their maqnah they had underneath a chador. While others say they pulled the entire hijaab so that her hair was showing. Do you know whether it’s the first or the latter which is the case.

In my research, it was both but for different people. For some it was the outer hijab or face covering, whilst for others it was the hair covering. For eg, Sukayna daughter of Imam Hussain has her earrings snatched. This can only happen if the hijab was removed
