Islam sees hijab as an obligatory code of dress, not a religious symbol displaying one’s affiliations.

Coming each year on February 1, the World Hijab Day is marked across over tens of countries.

The event, a brainchild of New York-based Nazma Khan, aims at fostering religious tolerance and understanding by inviting non-Hijabi Muslims and non-Muslims to experience hijab for one day.
