Nigerian beauty Obabiyi Aishah Ajibola is the winner of the 2013 Muslimah World beauty contest.

The beauty pageant is exclusively for Muslim women and it is built as the Moslem alternative to the Miss World beauty pageant. In addition to good looks the women are judged by their knowledge of Islam and the Koran.

The finale took place in Jakarta,  the Indonesian capital.

Obabiyi Aishah Ajibola's prise included over $2,000 and trips to Mecca and India.

This is the first year the pageant was open to international contestants. It started three years ago in response to protests by Islamic groups against the Miss World pageant which will be held on September 28, 2013, in Bali, Indonesia.
