Obabiyi Aishah Ajibola is Miss Muslimah World 2013
Nigerian beauty Obabiyi Aishah Ajibola (21) was announced the winner of the Miss Muslimah World contest organised by the World Muslimah Foundation in Jakartha, Indonesia. The event was held exclusively for Muslim women, who were assessed not only for their appearance (in Islamic dress) but also for their piety, religious knowledge and understanding of the Quran. Participants were asked to talk to people through their path to the religion and what wearing a headscarf meant to them.
The Miss Muslimah World is an annual Islamic beauty pageant held at Indonesia. This year, for the first time, the organizers allowed foreign participants from Iran, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Brunei and Nigeria to take part.
