A hijab is a fabric designed to cover the head of women, and many Muslim women wear hijabs on a daily basis as it is accustomed to the Islamic religion for women to cover their heads when they pray.

Hijabs are made in different styles, some are made to cover ones head to the shoulder, others to the length of the arm and some covers the entire body from head to the ankle of one's legs.

Some Muslims believe that the true test of a woman's faith is when she wears her hijab every day and everywhere not only when she wants to pray.

A Nigerian Twitter user who seems to be in this category has taken to social media to praise a governor's wife who rocks her hijab everywhere.
