Burqa is a loose, usually black or light blue outer garment worn by muslim women that covers the head to foot, only open the eyes but the rest of the body, except the hands, are covered. Mainly it is the outer wear for muslim women but it’s not worn indoors in the presence of family.
Many Muslims believe that the collected traditions of the life of Muhammed, or Hadith, require both men and women to dress and behave modestly in public.
