The video shows men, women and children dancing joyfully to the song Happy by Pharrell Williams. Some of the video's dancers include women in headscarves, as well as the niqab, a type of headscarf that covers the entire face except for the eyes, along with young women without headscarves.

The video ends with a  bold message: "Despite the difficulties, our happiness will never cease."

It has been viewed almost 90,000 times in the 48 hours since it was first posted on Friday.
