Fans took to the comments to not only share how much they love the look, but also praising the star for embracing Muslim culture.

"Love it," singer Tamar Braxton said.

"Beautiful," Priyanka Chopra added.

"Beautiful! Thank you for embracing the culture," one person wrote.

"Salaam, you look phenomenal. Queen, thank you for showing the world that you and Will got love for us. We really appreciate it. Sometimes we are made to feel that the world is against us. Queens like you show the world there is nothing to fear and contrary to certain beliefs, we don't hate the world or non Muslims. I actually welcome, embrace and love all people. Thank you Queen," a fan continued.

On Friday, Jada shared several pics of herself sporting a beautiful orange hijab giving credit to photographer Jas Davis.

"When you are in the Middle East watching @willsmith on his sunrise run in my non glamour glory and the talented @jas wants to capture it," she captioned the post.

In the past, Jada has denied being affiliated with any religion, but in a series of tweets in 2017, admitted that she incorporates aspects of several religions.

"I recently lit Shabbat candles with Rabbi Bentley at Temple Sinai... but I am not Jewish. I have prayed in mosques all over the world... but I am not a Muslim. I have read the Bhagavad Gita... but I am not a Hindu. I have chanted and meditated in some of the most magnificent temples on earth… but I am not a Buddhist. I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech… but I am not a Scientologist. I practice human kindness, and I believe that we each have the right to determine what we are and what we are not. NO ONE ELSE can hold that power," she tweeted at the time.
