Hijab is an Arabic word meaning barrier or partition. Muslim women are required to observe the hijab in front of any man they could theoretically marry.
Allah says in Quran (interpretation of the meaning):
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allaah is Ever Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful”
[al-Ahzaab 33:59] – (From Islamqa.info)
