National Ameerah of the Association of Muslim Women in Business and the Professionals, Dr. Saudat S. Abdulbaqi has enjoined Muslims in the country to write more books on Islamic issues as the dearth of such writers has led to lack of representation and misrepresentation of Islam and Muslims.
She made the observation during the 8th Biennial National Conference and General meeting of the association held in Abuja recently.
The Ameerah who prayed for, and described late Hajiya Bilkisu Yusuf as “a fine female writer”, said the association had taken it upon itself to contribute its own quota by writing two volumes of the book about reading, comprising well researched articles on Islam.
She said the Association, also referred to as the criterion, in its 29 years of existence has made contributions towards improving the cause of humanity by caring for orphans and the needy, creating Salat enabled- hotel rooms and being agent of change in the society, adding that during the conference different sessions were held for the benefit of Muslim women.
“To ensure that women and children make the best of what life and time offers, the criterion had separate sessions with women where seasoned female politicians provided inspiration and guidance to Muslim women on how to manage the demands of politics and their homes in the event that their husbands ventured into politics.
She also said that since the trending issues in the lives of youths revolved round information and communication technology, ICT, secondary school students were guided to realise the virtues and vices inherent in ICT, even as seasoned Islamic scholars spoke on Islam and Contemporary issues, especially the effects of globalisation on Muslims.
Besides, she lamented the challenges facing the criterion, sought assistance for the building of an orphanage to enable it properly cater for some orphans, the completion of its group of schools located in its branches as well as building a befitting Secretariat and production of more Qibla indicators for distribution to hotels.
Speaking to Nigerian Pilot, chairman of transportation committee of the Association, Hajiya Modinat Biobaku said the association is currently catering for orphans from the ages of two years to 23 years, two of whom have been trained up to university level.
