In Islam, the words of God are that the women should be modest and follow the principle of clothing. She should cover her beauty. At home or among family or in front of her husband there is no need to wear the Muslim headscarf. Many Muslim women wear the headscarf.

All these types of the Muslim headscarf which is said to follow the laws of God are called Hijab.
