Hijab Controversy: How God used me to break barrier – Amasa Firdaus

Amasa Firdaus, the law graduate who challenged the restriction on the use of hijab during call-to-bar ceremonies says she was used as an instrument by Allah.

DAILY POST recalls that the University of Ilorin graduate was in December denied access into the hall for the ceremony, which took place at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, for refusing to remove her hijab. This generated controversies.

She had insisted that wearing the hijab does not contradict the dress code set by the law school, while describing the action as “a violation of her rights”.

In June, the body of benchers responsible for calling law graduates to bar approved the use of hijab, and Firdaus was called to bar on Tuesday.

Speaking to Cable on how she felt, Firdaus said: “I don’t feel any special.

“I feel grateful to my Lord. A Muslim will always be hopeful. It was not something I did myself. A lot of people were involved. I believe it is something that Allah has personally designed, I was just used as an instrument.

“A lot of people were in hijab. I feel grateful to Allah, it is not something I did. It is what Allah did Himself. I don’t feel any special. I just believe Allah decided to use me for it.”
