The Hijab

Niqab muslim woman dress muslim veil

Hijab literally means a "Veil", a "Curtain", a Partition" or a "Separation". In Shariah terms Hijab does not just refer to the head covering. It is about covering everything of a woman thus leading to a separation of her beauty from men who are not her Mahrem. This will also include her clothing, they way she smells, the way she talks and the way she walks.

For some strange reason Hijab has been mistaken for the head covering. The head covering is actually the Khimaar.
