Hijab is a square cloth like a scarf. Muslim women use it to cover their hair, head and neck, to maintain modesty and privacy from unrelated or unknown men in public places or even at home.

According to the report of CNN, the hijab was not started according to the religion, but according to the need of women. Its use was started by the people of Mesapotamian civilization. Then linen cloth was used to protect the head from strong sunlight, dust and rain. It was tied on the head. If you look at the ancient Assyrian inscriptions written in the 13th century, you will find a mention of it in that too. Apart from this, author Fegeh Shirazi has written in his book ‘The Well Unwielde: The Hijab in Modern Culture’ that in Saudi Arabia, due to the climate there, women had a practice of covering their heads even before the arrival of Islam. Women used to use it to escape from the scorching heat.
