Hijab and Burqa are two types of dresses in Islamic culture. Both hijab and burqa are meant for women to wear. The idea behind the use of hijab and burqa is actually to improve modestly in the dressing pattern of females.

However, there are some fundamental differences between hijab and burqa. Hijab means a traditional headscarf or covering worn by Muslim women to cover their neck and the hair. Hijab is a simple headscarf compared to the burqa. The part of your body that is included in the neck and the hair.

Hijab does not extend to other parts of the body. It does not cover your face. Burqa, on the other hand, is also a traditional dress in the form of hijab worn by Muslim women to cover their body. Unlike hijab, when you wear a burqa, it covers every part of your body. Although burqa does not include one's face, there is a specially made face veil that has already been stitched with a burqa.
