I have a question about the hijab. Is it a choice as to whether you wear it or not. I have a Muslim friend who does and one who doesn't so I was just wondering if every Muslim has to wear one.

Hi ALL....
I am a South East Asian moslem and I've been wearing hijab eversince i did my first Haj pilgrimage over 10 years ago .....meanwhile....
I grew up in and surrounded by fashion,My mother is a quite wellknown fashion designer in my country,and before that,she was a moviestar when she was young(in the 70's) She was known for her great style,so you can pretty much say that me and my siblings grew up in style ,I mean reeeallly.....seriously,i'm not kidding,she fuss about how we dress all the time,i wasnt even able to wear plain old tshirts and shorts when she's around,we almost always have to look perfect,even in our PJs,and everyday, at my house as a little girl,all I see are beautiful stylish models running around(Her workshop is attached to our home),and beautiful Fabrics here and there,It all looked very exciting and glamorous to me,though as a little girl it was annoying for me to have my mom dress me up like a barbie all the time(the clothes were'nt always my style ) ,until I too Fell in love with Fashion when i was still very young and i took fashion merchandising as a major in college......
So I was not going to give up style because i started wearing the hijab ....,though i must admit,It's been a challenge....
because in our moslem rules, a women must not exploit her body to people who are not their "Mahrom",we are only able to show our face,and hands,and we cant wear bodyhugging (tight)clothes too , for instance,to find a perfect long sleeve designer top(they have to be the ones that covers my butt too ,especially if i'm wearing pants and jeans)....most of my Clothes are tailor made,except jeans and jackets,though i've been lucky enough to find nice long sleeve tops at Catherine Malandrino,antik batik,paul and joe,Anna Sui, Zara and topshop.my new found fave are Rachel Roy's tops,if only they dont cost an arm and a leg, sometimes i buy my clothes in exotic places too,such as thailand's sunday market,india,and Tibet,they have such unique things.Because finding stylish clothes is not easy for me at times,and i cant always follow trends in that department,i focus more on Accessories ,Bags,Shoes and Jewelries ......
That's how i became A PursePrincess .
But i've learned a trick or two(It's been 10 years),for instance,if i want to wear skinny jeans(except mine usually not an actual skinny jeans coz they're usually too tight,i opt for straight leg jeans instead(my fave for this are Bluecult and Mango by Lizzie jagger),on me,they look like skinny jeans because i have skinny legs )i'll be wearing a huge babydoll style top or a balloon top over it...
Like this brown crossstich adorned babydoll top that i got from India,over a straight leg Bluecult jeans......

Actually, with all due respect, I disagree with Xmodel citizen to a certain extent. To clarify, if I had to make a fairly well educated guess, my estimate would be that at the least, 60% of Muslims around the world believe that women should wear hijab in public (at least around those of the opposite sex) and that it is mandated in the Quran and supporting Hadith (sayings of the Prophet). The rest, who are usually the more progressive Muslims, believe that wearing hijab is not obligatory and that it is a woman's choice.
