Girl in Hijab

Here we see two friends, one of whom is wearing a hijab. Pakistani girls come in a variety of shapes, sizes and of course dress codes…not least of which is the hijab. Hijab is an Islamic dress code which entails the covering of the hair.
Unlike the commonly held stereotypical belief, however, hijab does not include covering of the face. Face covering(known niqab) are not an Islamic dress code, but actually derived from the culture of the Arab bedouins and has no basis in Islamic injunctions.
