Hidden Pearls usually share amazing content with their readers. Their recent article ‘What is Hijab’ is again a masterpiece. It delves deep into the etymology, history, religious, cultural histories of Muslim Hijab. Hijab generally to us Westerners means Islamic scarves aka Headscarf, however there is much more to it than simply that.
I for instance was surprised to find out that Hijab in Islam is also recommended for men as well. However for some reason, I never found this out from our own Western media. Needless to say our media is extremely biased when it comes to portraying Muslims. Portraying their women as oppressed, backwards and in dire need of us helping them our militarily for ‘freedom’ is what I have always seen on TV channels here in Seattle.
I looked into Hidden Pearls a little further. They are one of the market leaders for online hijab selling. In other words they are a very successful Hijab Shop. They stock all types of hijabs, maxi hijabs, graduation hijabs, unique hijabs, sports hijabs, gym hijabs, swimming hijabs etc. This is not all, they also stock a large number of hijab accessories like Hijab pins, hijab brooches. They also have a wide variety of Niqabs and Abayas.
Coming back to the article, what is hijab discusses Islamic verses of covering up in detail. It gave me a real understanding of hijab in Islam. I would invite all our readers to read this article to get a better understanding of 2 Billion people we share this planet with!
