This in order to prevent lust and two-eyed flirting.
Saudi cleric Sheikh Mohammed al-Habadan has declared that a Muslim veil, or hijab, that covers all but the eyes encourages women to use eye make-up to look seductive, the BBC reported Friday.
Al-Habadan has called on Saudi women to wear a full veil, or niqab, which covers the entire face, including one eye.
The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies.
Commenter Damien points out that with only one eye, Muslim women will lose their depth perception.
My theory is that is desirable to the average Muslim male.
Because, if Muslim women have no depth perception, it makes it harder for them to tell how small their husbands penis is.
