Guest: Loren Marks, PhD, Professor of Family Life, Brigham Young University The traditional Muslim headscarf, called the hijab, is often misunderstood, which is why New York resident Nazma Khan started World Hijab Day five years ago. From that sprung the 30-day Hijab Challenge during the month of Ramadan – which just concluded. Women of different faiths from all over the world wore the hijab in a show of solidarity. Part of the American Families of Faith survey project here at BYU has included interviews with devout American Muslim women about why they wear the hijab.
