The hijab according to her, is a head and chest veil being worn by Muslim women usually when they are around males who are not part of their close family. It means partition or curtain used to safeguard female from strange male harassment.

"It is a command from Allah in the Qur’an chapter 33 verse 59 thus O prophet say to your wives and your daughters and the women Of the believers that they let down upon them their garments, this Will be more proper, that they may be known and thus they will not Be given trouble; and Allah is Forgiving, MercifulWorld Hijab Day is observed every year on February 1st to honour Muslim Women who wear the hijab and maintain their modesty"

"World hijab day also aims to create better awareness and greater understanding on issues affecting Muslim women all over the world, to this end", she stated
