Islamic Dress Code For Dummies: A Dictionary of Hijab Terms

 

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

 

Birqa: a traditional mask worn by women in the desert to keep sand out of their mouths. Made of cloth, fabric, and string, and often coloured/painted purple, black, yellow, or gold, it is a practical traditional garment that retains little heat and holds no original Islamic purpose though it does blur a woman's facial features, and it still worn by older women and the Beduoin in Khaleeji and African (namely Egypt) countries. ***a term often mistaken for the mesh chador of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
