But don't inculcate your religious views into governmental code of conduct, any one who cannnot drop some certain religious views, should quietly go an study his religion as a course and fine his bearing.
Very soon they'll say arm forces should be permitted to wear hijabs.

Issue like this is why Western Ideologies and Islamic ideologies are two parallel lines.

The Law we practise is a British type of Law and Britain is part of the Western society, there is no way you can combine Western practise with Islamic Practise just not possible.

That is why Boko -haram said Western Education is Haram.

If you know the ethics of that profession is not in tangent or agreement with your religion,its better you avoid such a profession.

If the Sango worshipers want to fight for their right. It has got nothing to do with us. They can do as they please. Good luck.to them. Practicing the religion appropriately is what matters.

Verse (24:31) - Translation
“...and not display their beauty except what is apparent, and they should place their khumur over their bosoms...

What is the meaning of “khumur” used in this verse?
Khumur خُمُرٌ is plural of khimarخِمَارٌ , the veil covering the head.

Al-Munjid, which is the most popular dictionary in the Arab world, defines al-khimar as “something with which a woman conceals her head —ما تغطى به المرأة رأسها .” Fakhru ’d-Din al-Turayhi in Majma‘u ’l-Bahrayn (which is a dictionary of Qur’anic and hadith terms) defines al-khimar as “scarf, and it is known as such because the head is covered with it.

So the word khimar, by definition, means a piece of cloth that covers the head.

Then what does the clause “placing the khumur over the bosoms” mean?
According to the commentators of the Qur’an, the women of Medina in the pre-Islamic era used to put their khumur over the head with the two ends tucked behind and tied at the back of the neck, in the process exposing their ears and neck. By saying that, “place the khumur over the bosoms,” Almighty Allah ordered the women to let the two ends of their headgear extend onto their bosoms so that they conceal their ears, the neck, and the upper part of the bosom also

Practising her religion in a secular court? If you guys really want to practice your religion, why did the lady come to church without the company of a male relative, why are Muslim ladies no going around with burka as is specified in the Koran.

Dear miss Amasa firdaus, I don't have anything with you but kindly respond to my question accordingly.

Do you have an international passport?

if yes, did you remove your hijab when you took the passport?

if no, would you remove your hijab if you want to take international passport having known that you can't take it with your hijab?

if you can take away your​ hijab away for few minutes during which the passport is taken then why can't you take it off as well during the "call to bar ceremony"

morealso, if the code of conduct is amended so to say. what should be the fate of other faithfuls like christians, traditional worshippers e.t.c because they have their own mode of dressing as well.


furthermore, what would your stance be if you're to judge a case affiliated to islam and other religion(s) and the islam person(s) is found guilty based on your religious belief?

these are my few questions begin for answers

Do solemly respond

I am yet to see anywhere in the Koran that makes the wearing of hijabs compulsory.

The Muslims are the major cause of problems in this Nation, Nigeria.

It is always one thing or the other about them.

Nigeria will know peace if we stop the foolishness we create as a result of bringing in religion into everything.

This will become news for weeks or months based on religiosity and not using these religions in looking for way forward for the country.

AgentOfAllah:
I have seen many claims on here that wearing hijab to one's call to bar is against the law, but I have yet to see anybody cite the specific law that is being violated. This is not about Amasa's religion, it's about her secular rights, and in this case, the law school, in spite of its unique position as the nurturer of Nigeria's judicial institution, is evidently the erring party here. The law school should ferociously adhere to, and promote the spirit of Nigeria's constitution, not brazenly violate it, as it has done against this young lady. I'm happy she's brave enough to stand her ground, and I stand with Amasa Firdaus!

Your point is clear, @agent

But the point is:
Others, both her mates and previous graduates of Law school have certain areas and aspect of the institution's modus operandi which may not conform to their belief. All such people have kept quiet in the interest of peace and uniformity.

By this act, perhaps all future students will find a voice and must be given their right to difference.

Can you expect what right to difference will introduce

Oh common. Let's not go there na.

I'm sorry, but your argument is rather absurd! It is a secular court, not an anti-religion court. The goal of secularism has never been to eliminate religious expressions. It is to remove any direct influence of religion from state transactions. So, please tell me, how does wearing hijab interfere with state transactions?

Women are allowed to go to Sharia Court and women lawyers prosecute and handle cases in the Sharia Court. So where did you get that idea that women dont go to the Sharia Court.

Maybe we need to devide the country along religious lines as done with India. You guys will then be free to substitute the constitution with shariah law. There is no way affiliated Christian will stand before a judge wearing an hijab or burka, likewise there is no way affiliated Muslim will stand before a judge watering a cassock.
