Hijab is a headscarf or a veil mostly worn by women of the Islamic religion. Hijab is an Arabic word meaning “cover.”

Hijab is commonly associated with women, but sometimes Muslim men also wear a head covering as a means of showing modesty. 

According to Islamic teachings, hijab is not only restricted to the headscarf worn by women. It includes the way a person talks, looks and think. 

All of it should be done modestly. It applies not only to women but also to men.

WHD is an annual event celebrated on the 1st of February, all over the world, in recognition of millions of Muslim women who live a life of modesty and choose to wear the hijab.

World Hijab Day was founded by Nazma Khan in 2013. She wanted to encourage religious tolerance and understanding by inviting women (non-Hijabi Muslims/non-Muslims) to experience the hijab for one day.

Nazma Khan started an organization known as World Hijab Day Organization, Inc. which is a non-profit organization with a mission to respect everyone's choice and belief despite so much of intolerance around.

It's the matter of Respect and Modesty which is part of a Women's Beauty. WHD Organization spreads a message to Stand for Modesty and Empower Humanity. They want every woman to feel free in hijab.

World Hijab Day Organization is moving to every city day by day to spread awareness by conducting events. They appoint an ambassador from every city who carry forward the message and lead the event.
