A Nigerian woman has been crowned Muslim Miss World in the final of a beauty pageant organised by a women’s group in direct response to the mainstream Miss World competition taking place in Indonesia.
Miss Nigeria, Obabiyi Aishah Ajibola, 21, won the Miss Muslimah World contest which was organised by the World Muslimah Foundation, a Muslim women’s group, and held in Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta as a protest to the traditional contest being held in Bali this month.
The annual Muslim event – now in its third year – is held exclusively for Muslim women, who are assessed not only their appearance (in Islamic dress) but also their piety, religious knowledge and understanding of the Koran.
Note and correction: The crown is not on the head of a winner. Yet.
Well, we certainly don’t want to play second fiddle here behind these striding developments of modernity in the Muslim world. So, we are launching our own Miss Muslim 2013 Beauty Contest and the contestants can be seen below.
To not intrude into their modesty, and since Muslim women rarely act or think as a singular person, you can select the winner as a group. Each group is divided by picture. To cast your vote just leave a comment as to your favorite picture and who you feel should be the deserving winner of Miss Muslim 2013!
The picture with the largest number of votes will be the winner of the most beautiful Muslim woman 2013!
