Notes:
Algiers, Algeria - Hijab is the Arabic word for "curtain / cover" (noun), meaning "to cover, to veil, to shelter". In popular use, hijab means "head cover and modest dress for women" among Muslims, which most Islamic legal systems define as covering everything except the face and hands in public. According to Islamic scholarship, hijab is given the wider meaning of modesty, privacy, and morality; the word for a headscarf or veil used in the Koran is khimÄ?r and not hijab. Still another definition is metaphysical, where al-hijab "refers to the veil which separates man or the world from God."
