Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Lagos State Area Unit Sisters’, has re-emphasised the wearing of hijab by women as a commandment by Allah in the Holy Quran.
Light was shed on some issues at the MSSN Sisters’ Da’wah conference in commemoration of the World Hijab Day, at Federal College of Education (Tech), Akoka, Lagos, themed: ‘’The rope that binds’’.
Many adult and teenage sisters were in attendance, and there were sessions on the use of hijab. A workshop treated issues of hijab in Lagos anchored on the controversy surrounding the use of hijab in public schools, despite the approval by the state government.
The Guest Speaker, and Manager Tax, Federal Inland Revenue Services, Dr. Fauzuyah Olajide, said the only valid reason anyone should use hijab should be because Allah commanded it and because irrespective of colour or race, hijab is a unique bond of love that binds all Muslim sisters together.
