Oman: Niqab Experience

Oman Sky tells us about her experience with anonymity when wearing the face veil (Niqab).


  • lubna

    can i learn about your reasons and motives for wearing a hijab/niqab, (but only in english language.)

    i want to write a research paper on this topic for a course in the PHD program.

  • Lubna, you can post on Oman Sky’s blog in English and she will hopefully respond to you.
