Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Safiyyah Ab­dur­Razaq

Moth­ers, es­pe­cially Mus­lim women must rise up to giv­ing their chil­dren the best moral foun­da­tion for a vir­ile and peace­ful so­ci­ety, a Mus­lim cleric Sheikh Dhikrul­lah Ibrahim has said.

He said they needed to raise their chil­dren in line with the teach­ings of Is­lam since the foun­da­tion of any so­ci­ety be­gins from the home front.

Sheikh Ibrahim made the call in Abuja at a Sem­i­nar or­gan­ised by the Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Tad­ham­nul Mus­limeen (OTM), Federal Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT) chap­ter.

The Is­lamic scholar ad­vised women not to re­lent in their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as moth­ers urg­ing them to en­cour­age their hus­bands to earn a liv­ing through le­git­i­mate means.

He also ad­vised the women top obey their hus­bands and es­tab­lish friend­ship with their chil­dren.

In Ha­jiya

her re­marks, Kafayah Hamza urged women to seek for knowl­edge and en­sure that they un­der­stood the ba­sic re­spon­si­bil­i­ties given to them by Al­lah.

She im­plored women to be good role mod­els for their chil­dren, up­hold the Is­lamic mode of dress­ing and ex­hibit good neigh­bor­li­ness to those in their com­mu­nity.

“It is es­sen­tial for us to study the psy­chol­ogy of our chil­dren and act on it ac­cord­ingly. We should al­ways be at alert and not leave our chil­dren at the mercy of books and schools,” she ad­vised.
