World Hijab Day: All The Times Hijabi Fashion Left Us In Awe

Werk, ladies.

It's World Hijab Day (WHD), which means, of course, we're going to celebrate all the beautiful women who rock their modest fashion with flare.

The globally recognized holiday, which was first celebrated back in 2013, was created by New Yorker Nazma Khan, who came up with the idea to educate non-Muslims on why women in Islam choose to wear the headscarf, after facing harsh discrimination herself. She also invites women of other religious backgrounds to sport a hijab for the day.

"Growing up in the Bronx, in NYC, I experienced a great deal of discrimination due to my hijab," Khan recalled on the WHD website. "In middle school, I was 'Batman' or 'ninja.' When I entered University after 9/11, I was called Osama Bin Laden or terrorist. It was awful. I figured the only way to end discrimination is if we ask our fellow sisters to experience hijab themselves."

With mentions in the New York Times, the BBC and other prestigious publications, the movement has picked up some serious momentum over the years, meaning more and more people around the world are being educated on why a woman's choice to be modest is perfectly OK.

Absolutely amazing!
