Why Muslim Women Wear Hijab

The hijab is often seen as a symbol of oppression. Honestly, I’ve never understood why. If a woman should have the freedom to choose how to dress, why shouldn’t she have the freedom to choose to dress modestly?

Below are videos about hijab. Nouman Ali Khan discusses whether the Quran states that women should cover their head. Aminah Assilmi explains why Muslim women wear hijab. Hanna Yusuf addresses many stereotypes about hijab as a symbol of oppression. Jennifer Kushell had traveled to 50 countries, but had never talked to a niqabi. Watch what happened when she met one. Karim Metwaly asked New Yorkers what they think about hijab.
