The Amirah of Al-Akhwaatul Muslimah  Organisation, Oyo State chapter, Alhaja Bashirat Omowumi Ashim has enjoined Muslim women in the country to always wear hijab according to the dictate and command of Almighty Allah in order to appreciate the values  and beauty of God in them.

Alhaja Ashim gave the charge while speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, on the  occasion of 2021 celebration of World Hijab Day.

According to her, Hijab wearing is a command from Almighty Allah, made compulsory  for Muslim  women as part of their dressing.

“The World Hijab Day was created in 2013 to encourage  Muslim women from different background  to put on Hijab.

“Every February 1st is the World Hijab Day  celebration  all over the world.”

“In marking the day, we paid a courtesy visit to the commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Inclusion, Alhaja Fausat Sanni and the visit was historic. ”

The commissioner expressed delight at the  visit, describing it as a welcome development.

Alhaja Ashim who said the visit was aimed at identifying with the commissioner and to  celebrate the day expressed confidence that the occasion will encourage more Muslim women to embrace Hijab wearing.

“The Hijab is not  fashion but  dress code to encourage morals in Muslim women.

“The  celebration is also aimed at addressing the issue of  discrimination face by  Muslim women  in our society in some occasion.

She said the celebration  provided them the opportunity  to create more awareness to reach out to  Muslim women to embrace wearing of Hijab instead of western dress.

The Amirah who is the proprietress of Ar- Rahman -the Beneficent Nursery And Primary School, Muslim area in Ibadan  charged the women  to be of good morals and discipline  to uphold virtues of good Muslim Women.

According to her, wearing of Hijab has nothing to do with social vices such as the Boko Haram insurgence in our society as  believed by some people.

The Amirah then commended governor Seyi Makinde for identifying with Muslims across the state and for creating enabling environment for them to thrive in their activities.
