Hi, this question is always asked and to answer this question goes ...
Statement: This question goes back to basics Islam is a way of life how you eat, sleep, drink, walk, talk, dress and your total behaviour
Response: Yes, this is absolutely true, and to this point I agree, but the Islamic way of life is not between mankind and mankind, but between individual human beings and their Maker.
Statement: So to answer this question [is] yes all Muslim women are to wear hijab, in the Qur'an says women are to draw their veils over their breast...
Response: The Qur'an does not support your claim here, but culture does. Let's briefly review the facts.
My Exhibit A, The Word
THE WORD "HIJAB" [√hjb] in the QURAN:
"Hijab" is the term used by many Muslim women to describe their head cover that may or may not include covering their face except their eyes, and sometimes covering also one eye. The Arabic word "Hijab" can be translated into veil or yashmak. Other meanings for the word "Hijab" include, screen, cover(ing), mantle, curtain, drapes, partition, division, divider.
Can we find the word "Hijab" in the Quran??
The word "Hijab" appeared in the Quran 7 times, five of them as "Hijab" and two times as "Hijaban," these are 7:46, 33:53, 38:32, 41:5, 42:51, 17:45 & 19:17.
None of these "Hijab" words are used in the Quran in reference to what the traditional Muslims call today (Hijab) as a dress code for the Muslim woman.
God knows that generations after Muhammed's death the Muslims will use the word "Hijab" to invent a dress code that He never authorized. God used the word "Hijab" ahead of them just as He used the word "Hadith" ahead of them.
Hijab in the Quran has nothing to do with the Muslim Women dress code. (The Monotheist Group found online)
My Exhibit B, HISTORICAL BACKGROUND:
While many Muslims call "Hijab", an Islamic dress code, they completely ignore the fact that, Hijab as a dress code has nothing to do with Islam and nothing to do with QURAN.
In reality "Hijab" is an old Jewish tradition that infiltrated into the hadith books like many innovations that contaminated Islam through alleged Hadith and Sunna. These in reality, came from Jewish origin. Any student of the Jewish traditions or religious books will see that head cover for the Jewish woman is encouraged by the Rabbis and religious leaders. Religious Jewish women still cover their heads most of the time and specially in the synagogues, weddings, and religious festivities.
Christian women cover their heads in many religious occasions while the nuns cover their heads all the time. This religious practice of covering the head was established from traditions thousands of years before the Muslim scholars claimed the Hijab as a Muslim dress code.
The traditional Arabs, of all religions, Jews, Christians and Muslims used to wear "Hijab," not because of Islam, but because of tradition. In Saudi Arabia, up to this minute most of the men cover their head, not because of Islam but because of tradition. Thank God this tradition has not been counted as Islamic dress code yet.
North Africa is known for its Tribe (Tuareg) that have the Muslim men wearing "Hijab" instead of women. Here the tradition has the hijab in reverse. If wearing Hijab is the sign of the pious and righteous Muslim woman, Mother Teresa would have been the first woman to be counted.
In brief, hijab is a traditional dress and has nothing to do with Islam or religion. In certain areas of the world, men are the ones who wear the hijab while in others the women do.
Mixing religion with tradition is a form of idol-worship, because not knowing (or not trying to find out) what God asked you to do in His book, the Quran, is a sign of disregarding God and His message. When tradition supersedes God's commandment, the true religion takes a second place. God never accepts to be second, God has to be always the FIRST and to HIM there is no second.

ARGUMENT ONE based on Exhibits A and B
Exhibits A and B are from The Monotheist Group website, and yet they bring out the point that √hjb is nowhere used to prescribe such a dress code for women, so I ask you now where you support that all Muslim women wearing hijab is Islamic. That is not Islamic based at all; HOWEVER, it certainly is culturally based and based on your culture it becomes "opinion" not Islamic.
Statement: you said this hides their beauty and their attraction
Response: Please quote me properly so that I can make a proper response. Thanks.
Statement: that is the point[;] women shouldn't be judge[d] by their looks
Response: I don't see any point made. Please clarify. Thanks.
Statement: they have other natural attractions also
Response: I agree, but that says nothing to prove your case with regard to your opinion that all women should wear hijab because that is supposedly Islamic.
Question: if this practice was not a good one why are non Muslim men attracted to Muslim women[?]
Response: Why is anyone attracted to whatever they are attracted to? Not all non-Muslim men are attracted to Muslim women, and there is no polling source to my knowledge to make your assumption worthy of accepting as fact.
Question: how come Muslim marriages are great success when a lot of non Muslim reject Islam[?]
Response: There are a lot of great marriage success stories outside of Islam as well, but these success stories have nothing to do with religion. These success stories have everything to do with how both [in some cases all] parties involved approach the marriage relationship. Successful Muslim marriages being great and non-Muslims rejecting Islam are not related topics. You're mixing apples and horses here. Doesn't work in the real world.
Your Answer to your own baseless question: because of this anyway Muslim women are respected and are more dignified because of the way they dress.
Response: Granted, my personal experience through conversations with non-Muslim men and women, Muslimah whether they wear hijab or not are very highly regarded in the society that I live in although the Christian Terrorist Network has a stronghold where I live. Personally, maybe because I am prejudiced in that I am a Muslim, I find the hijab very dignifying for a woman whether she is a Muslim, Jew, Christian, or just a very modest woman.
