As the  world marks  Hijab Day, a   Coalition of Muslim Women Associations in Kwara State, has called on girl-child to imbibe culture of wearing hijab at all times.

The programme was marked at Government Girls’ Day Secondary School, Ipata Oloje, Barakat Community Secondary School, Ilorin and Anifowose Community Secondary School, where hundreds of students attended the programme.

 The Amirah FOMWAN, Kwara State Chapter, Hajia Nimata Labaika, described wearing of hijab as a fulfillment of the commandments of Allah.

She added that wearing hijab upholds the dignity of Muslim women and portrays them as conscious and morally upright. 

Hajia Labaika explained that wearing hijab is not for fun, but a fulfillment of the commandments of Allah.

The FOMWAN Amirah enjoined the students to be proud of wearing hijab,  because it portrays them as  good ambassadors of Islam.

In her lecture, with theme, “Veiled is strength” the Secretary Al-Muminat Organization,   Hajia Muslimat AbdulRazaq said wearing hijab is part of the total submission to the commandments of Allah.

She also emphasized the need for people not to discriminate against anyone who wears hijab.

Hajia Muslimat AbdulRazaq  advised the students not to limit wearing of hijab to school environment alone, but also at home.
