“It a programme organized by women for the women, and the essence is to get to talk to ourselves plainly on those things that affect us as women, and thank God for the resource person in person of Haijya Halima Sani who is a Dawa woman, she was able to tell in plain terms those things, those values, those virtues that are expected of a woman and how to make our homes and how to leave in our homes and how to raise our families.
“Because what is happening in the world at large now is as a result of wrong parenthood, children don’t get the attention of there parent and they are left in the custody of other people to take care of them, like the care givers and the care givers are not better than even the children they are taking care of.
Speaking further Kudrat stressed that the guest lecturer was able to drive home the point she said: “as women, we have roles and responsibility to play in our homes and we must be able to do certain things in other to fulfill all obligations of been a woman and those are the virtues of a woman we must be able to take care of our homes, take care of our heart, mind, and body, even take care of our husband’s, children and anything that has to do with our environment must be of concern and interest to us,” she added.

“So it is unfortunate that such things are happening but it must be investigated to get to the root of it, and let the culprit be punished, so that it will serve as deterrent to other men to carry out such things”, she noted.
On her part, the guest lecturer, Hajyia Halima Sani, stressed that the lecture was to educate women about their dignity and to treat the misconceptions about womanhood.
“The central massage was about the dignity of a woman, to treat some misconceptions of people especially from the Western countries especially the feeling that women are been oppressed.
“That a Muslim woman is not free, she rendered to be relegated to the home, has nothing to offer or not educated and her education is limited within the home, the Qur’an mentioned the woman from the beginning to the end, the Prophet spoke good about the women, in act of worship and earning rewards women are equal just like the men, whatever she does she earn and she can excel to earn Paradise, the same way the man, but interns of other things like going out socializing with people a woman is given a particular role which is suitable for her nature,” she added.
“It’s high time women should take professions that is suitable to their nature, so that they can have more time at home. if the home is comfortable everyone is comfortable because the woman makes it comfortable,” she noted.
