Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Why the Hijab? double click to changethis text! Drag a cornerto scale proportionally. Hijab literally means "to conceal."It's one of the most prominent yetmisunderstood symbols of Muslimwomen as it is often viewed as a sign of oppression. According to the Qur'an, a woman's body should be covered with only her face,hands, and feet exposed.Also, clothing must be loose enough to not show the shapeof the woman's body. Muslim women proudlywear a hijab because it demonstrates modesty and it frees them frombeing viewed as sexual objects.The hijab is a symbol of humility and many womenview it as a gift from Allah. Controversy:1) Women who wear burqa(full head dress covering even the face) look down upon women who solely wear a hijab believing that those only wearing hijab are still too exposed.2) Women wearing the hijab often experience mistreatment because they are dressed differently than the societal norm.
