It would be recalled that Muslim women worldwide, on Sunday, marked this year’s edition of the Hijab Day.
Speaking at the event, the Director of the academy, Alhaji Musa Muhammad, described hijab as inseparable companion of the Muslim woman, adding that the school will continue to mark the day.
According to him, the usage of hijab by Muslim women is commanded by Allah, which must always be adhered to by faithful women but regretted that some wicked people now hide under hijab to commit various atrocities including bombing places or stealing.
Muhammad, who is the former chairman of Abaji Area Council and founder of the academy, said the school decided to donate the hijabs to the women in the area because of the importance Allah attaches to its usage by the women.
He pleaded with the Muslim women to always live by the dictates of Allah in the interest of their children and their lives thereafter.
The guest lecturer at the presentation  Ustaz Faruq Umar,  called on Muslim women to obey the rules and regulations of Allah as stipulated in the Holy Qur’an.
He urged the women not to see hijabs as veils meant for prayer only but mode of dressing for believers, saying its usage will earn Allah’s pleasures.
The Islamic cleric said any hijab that does not cover women body from head to toe is a mere attractive dressing.
Women who benefitted from the gesture thanked the management of the academy for the donation and prayed Allah to reward them accordingly.
