in response to reader comment: our dear dhimmi no more

Our dear Maryiam, ...there is no verb called hajab as you claim. there is something called a root and the root of the word hijab is: HJB and then we have the stem yuhajib or yufa3il (tuhajib F , yuhajibu P), hijab, muhajaba

Now let me help you, you can read details about the root HJB in Hans Wehr Arabic dictionary pages 158B and 159A

...Oh and I like to wear a bandana, does this mean that I'm wearing a hijab?
