Dictionary / Arabic - Turkish Terminology



Charshaf is a word rooted from Persian. It is derived from چهار which means four in Persian. This word is used in Turkish in the meaning of "a covering, which covers four sides of the body" and it refers to jilbâb which has been ordered for all Muslim women to wear by the Qur’an. It is also very similar to the niqab and the chador. It is a simple, loose, dark coloured over-garment, which covers all over the body from the head to the toes, including the face.
