WHAT DOES JILBAB MEAN IN ENGLISH?

jilbab

Jilbāb

The term jilbāb or jilbaab refers to any long and loose-fit coat or garment worn by some Muslim women. Wearers believe that this definition of jilbab fulfills the Quranic demand for a Hijab. Jilbab, Jubbah or Jilaabah is also known as Manteau by Persian speakers in Iran. The modern jilbāb covers the entire body, except for hands, face, and head. The head and neck are then covered by a scarf or wrap . Some women will also cover the hands and face. In Indonesia, the word jilbab is used for a headscarf rather than a long baggy overgarment. In recent years, a short visor is often included to protect the face from the tropical sun.
