NASFAT tasks Muslim women on wearing Hijab
The Nasrul-lahi-li Fathi Society of Nigeria (NASFAT) has urged Muslim women to adhere strictly to the religious directive on the wearing of Hijab.
Bashirat Saidu, the NASFAT Women Affairs Coordinator in Doka, Kaduna, gave the advice on Sunday in an interview with newsmen on the World Hijab Day.
According to her, wearing Hijab by women is to sanctify their body by covering it from public view.

“Wearing the hijab is an instruction from God Almighty as contained in the Quran that as women, we should cover our head, our body from head to toe,” she said.
The coordinator expressed concern over the level of indecent dressing in the society and urged parents to caution their wards against trespassing the law of the Almighty.
Hauwa Abdulkarim, the deputy Amirah, NASFAT Kaduna Branch, said Muslim women should wear non transparent, loose dresses and hijab and avoid heavy makeup while going out of their homes.
“Wearing the hijab is a sign of a good believer,” she said, adding that women who wear the Hijab negatively should desist.
