Hijab or Muslim scarfs are available in various styles and designs. They are either sequined or patterned with geometric shapes or are intricately designed with abstract patterns. Nevertheless they are very attractive and are also quite popular. The Muslim scarf is known as Hijab and it is a traditional wear for all women following the religion. Hijab in Arabic means a curtain or a veil. Traditionally women are compelled to wear a Muslim scarf or Hijab in public or in front of men who can marry them. It was considered to be a veil that would prevent men to get a look at the beauty of another woman. It also had a meta-physical significance wherein the scarf symbolizes as a veil to separate man from God.
Traditionally the Muslim scarf was worn along with full body cloaks and was generally available in dark shades of black and brown. These days they are available in a variety of fabric and are also available in vibrant colors. Earlier this piece of clothing was a sign of modesty but today it has become a fashion statement.
