A hijab s a veil traditionally worn by Muslim women in the presence of adult males outside of their immediate family, which usually covers the head and chest. Most often, it is worn by Muslim women as a symbol of modesty and privacy. Muslim music from around the world and since my original list heavily reflected my personal affection toward North African and Turkish praise songs. What has resulted is a beautiful collection of music, from the United States to Uzbekistan, from Pakistan to Paris, sung in many different languages and reflecting the geographic, linguistic, ethnic and sectarian diversity of the Muslim faith worldwide. n recent times, wearing hijab in public has been required by law in Iran, Saudi Arabia and the Indonesian province of Aceh. Other countries have passed laws banning some or all types of hijab in public or in certain types of locales.

The styles and practices of hijab vary widely across the world. Some fashion-conscious women have been turning to non-traditional forms of hijab such as turbans. There are several types of veils which cover the face in part or in full. The burqa is a garment that covers the entire body, including the face. The niqab is a garment that covers a woman’s upper body and face, except for her eyes. It is particularly associated with the style traditionally worn in the Arabian Peninsula, where the veil is attached by one side and covers the face only below the eyes, thereby allowing the eyes to be seen. . For Islamic women who choose to wear the hijab it allows them to retain their modesty, morals and freedom of choice. They choose to cover because they believe it is liberating and allows them to avoid harassment.
