A new Barbie doll is totally interesting. Even though there are some who dislike Muslims this doll shows freedom and rights that anyone is allowed to have and it’s very inspirational for Muslim women and other women everywhere. On Instagram, there is this account called @Hijarbie, showing off the recent hijab fashion from none other than Barbie, herself.

The creator of the account and the clothes itself is made by this man from Nigeria named, Haneefah Adam, who is 24-years-old. He made Barbie’s clothing by hand at his house.  He says on Buzzfeed about the Hijarbie dolls, “My hope with this account is to create a positive awareness and impact.”  Adam also stated that this doll is supposes to be an inspiration to all the little Muslim girls, making a statement about their cultural background and religion.

“At the end of the day, it will create a sense of value and will be inspiring them to be more confident, more driven, to believe more in themselves, which leads to an appreciation of herself and her modest lifestyle and upbringing,” Adam says. “Hijab means modesty to me and it’s my unique identity. It’s my crown and it represents my own personal control over the way I want to be seen. Not leaving out the fact that it’s a religious induction.”
