Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘alaa Rasoolillahi
Here is a clip of the funeral of an Austrian Ruler by the name of Emperor Franz Joseph the first who died in 1916. In it the womenfolk of the attendees are dressed in full Jilbaab!.
Some have commented upon the clip saying that the women are from royal backgrounds and thus could not be seen by regular people, while others state that this was the garment that was worn by european women at funerals at that time.
Regardless of the reason take a look at the clip and dont forget to mute the choir in the background baarakallahu feekum.

Subhan’Allah! The niqaab, jilbaab & hijaab are not foreign to the west after all…
