Arabian women’s clothing mostly consists of non-transparent, loose garments covering all of their body except for the hands and face. The Pardah system which is prevalent in this area stipulates that women cover their body and face, when outside,  as a symbol of modesty and Islamic faith.

Arabian Women follow the pardah system out of their religious obligations as well as their own personal choice.There are many who cherish their freedom to wear their choice of Arabian clothing . The arabian fashion celebrates beauty, modesty, bondage, holiness, humility and holiness at the same time

Muslims generally observe modest dress, but the variety of styles and colors have various names depending on the country. Here is a glossary of the most common names of Islamic clothing for both men and women, along with photos and descriptions.

Hijab

The word Hijab is sometimes used to generally describe a Muslim women’s modest dress. More specifically, it refers to a square or rectangular piece of fabric which is folded, placed over the head and fastened under the chin as a headscarf. Depending on the style and location, this may also be called a shaylah or tarhah.

Khimar

Abaya

The abaya may be worn from the top of the head to the ground (like the chador described below), or over the shoulders. It is usually fastened so that it is closed. It may be combined with a headscarf or face veil.
