Wearing a khimaar under a jilbaab

Q: If a woman is wearing the jilbab and a niqab, does she also have to wear a khimar over/underneath the jilbab though the jilbab covers her head anyway? I heard some people say that she has to wear both the khimar and the jilbab, is this true?

A: No, as long as her head is properly covered.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
