Asalamualaikum everyone!!! In today’s video we are going to be discussing the fact that we might be getting a hijab emoji in 2017! We seriously need to thank Rayouf Alhumedhi for taking the initiative to make this happen. She submitted a 7 page proposal to the Unicode Consortium and at the moment they are seriously considering to include the emoji around this time next year.

The hijab emojis that are being considered include three different types:
1. A hijabi with tan skin wearing a nude colored hijab.
2. A wrapped scarf.
3. A hijab without a face.

Let’s support Rayouf and let the Unicode Consortium know how much we want the hijab emoji to happen!!!!
