I have incorrectly been saying ‘burqa’ when I meant ‘niqab’ for maybe my whole life.
reblogging for informational purposes. i will come collect you if you reblog from me in a way that disrespects any of my sisters.

I thought niqab was just a description of the face covering? Does it refer to a specific cloak style garment?
I see a load of women in Bradford wearing a hijab and face veil (which I thought was called a niqab) with either loose clothing or a jilbab. It’s not an all in one face-hair-body covering thing.
