Source of Law

Muslims are explicitly warned against seeking other than Allah as a source of Law (Shariah). Qur’an 6:114 Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt. Arabic: أَفَغَيْرَ اللّهِ أَبْتَغِي حَكَمًا وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنَزَلَ إِلَيْكُمُ الْكِتَابَ مُفَصَّلاً وَالَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّهُ مُنَزَّلٌ مِّن رَّبِّكَ


The hijab per se is not a requirement. It is however, a type of veil so it does qualify as meeting the Quranic requirement of not displaying the “adornment” and  covering of “bosom”. Which can be found in Chapter (Surah) 24  Verse (Ayat) 31. Qur’an 24:31 And say to the female believers to cast down their be holdings, and preserve their private parts, and not display their adornment except such as is outward, and let them fix (Literally: strike) closely
