Persian girl's hijab, or Muslim scarf and / or robe

Originally uploaded by nazymani.
Hijab or ħijāb (Arabic: حجاب) is the Arabic term for "barrier".
In some Arabic-speaking countries and Western countries, the word hijab primarily refers to a headscarf worn by Muslim women. But in Islamic scholarship, hijab is usually taken to take on the wider meaning of dressing in a way that covers the hair, arms, and feet, says Wikipedia.org.
