Assalâmu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakâtuh, peace and salvation be upon you,
Bismillah Ar-Rahmân Ar-Rahîm.
Here is a little post about the history of the Djellaba. Do you know where this garment comes from? Its name?
The word Djellaba or Jellaba in North African Arabic designates a garment. In central and eastern Algeria it is called qeššaba or qeššabiya.
The word "Djellaba" would be an alteration of the word djilbab which, in ancient Arabic, would designate a draped garment. It should be noted that in Oman the gillab form refers to the woman's veil. The disappearance of the first b would have happened identically in the Maghreb and in Oman. This etymology is quite acceptable although the djellaba is not at all a draped garment but sewn. The mountain dialects of Morocco call it Tadjellabit which is a Berberized form.
This garment is popular for both men and women.
Looking forward to reading you.
