Short for 'hijab
', the arabic term originally meaning 'curtain' or 'concealment' and now used to refer to the headscarves of Muslim women. Hij is used as noun and adjective.
Heard in the Greater Cincinnati area, this particular usage is more popular with young American women, since they refer to their modest covering on a regular basis much as others would refer to non-detachable body parts (especially backsides).
"She's a hot hij, did you see the way she put that outfit together with that scarf? Excellent!"
"I can't just whip it out of my hij, I need to be prepared to give a speech like that!"
