The Criterion, an Association of Muslim Women in Business and the Professions, has called for the immortalization of late Hajiya Bilkisu Yusuf who died durinmg the September 24 stampede in Mina, Saudi Arabia during the last hajj exercise.

 
The women group has post-humously honoured Bilkisu along with two others; Alhaja Lateefah Okunnu and Alhaja Raliat Abdlrasaz for their selflessness service to the propagation of Islam.
 
Speaking at the 8th biennial National Conference and general meeting of the Criterion themed “Challenges of Globalization on Muslims” in Abuja on Saturday,
Proprietress of Nurul Bayan Academy, Hajiya Maryam Tahan noted that while globalization means different things to different people, the concept has changed in such a manner that power of the state is now determined by the power of the firms.
 
She said if the goal of globalization was more of the liberal exchange of goods, services, labour and thoughts among others, which in later stages would make the world uniform, then there would be no space for identity.
 
“The term globalization started appearing in literature from the 1980’s. Initially it referred mainly to the economic transactions and growth of economies. Soon it started penetrating into other fields like politics, with weakening authority of states, emergence of global governance order systems.
“We can therefore infer that Globalization/westernization is a direct result of specifically conceived, planned and targeted neo- liberal policies and structural measures that were designed to bring all aspects of social, economic and political life under the tag of market capitalism,” she said.
 
National Amirah (president) of the organisation Dr. Saudat Salah Abdulbaqi who also unveiled the maiden magazine of the organisation, ‘The Cornerstone’ observed the dearth of writers among Muslims especially women, leading to lack of representation and misrepresentation of Islam and Muslims.
 
On his part, Ustaz Abdulfattah Adeyemi who spoke on Islamic Perspective of Conflict Resolution, urged Muslim couples to relate with each other as specified in Sharia to enjoy the blessings of marriage and contribute positively to the society.  
The three-day event will also witnessed visit to Internally Displaced Camps (IDPs) in Durumi and Nurul Bayan Orphanage home.
