In her opening remarks the President of the organization, Woman Assistant Superintendent of Police Haja M’Balu Mansaray emphasized that women are the seeds of knowledge and the first knowledge of Allah which is planted and developed at the home under the guidance and loving care of the mother. She stated that it is a role Allah has gifted them with, the capabilities to accomplish the sense of giving and ability to inspire a sense of belonging.

Haja M’Balu stressed that covering the beauty for a woman is for her honor and protection rather than suppression. She emphasized the Importance and virtues of Hijab which can be judged by Quranic verses, as Hijab or the covering of Muslim Women is mentioned in the Holy Quran clearly.

Delivering a lecture on the topic the importance of education, the country director of  Munazamat Al-Dawa Al-Islamia Sheikh Abdul Ahmad Daramy reiterated that in an hadith Qudsi, Allah says,” Know ME, search for knowledge about ME before you worship Me. How can he who does not know Me worship ME?” He stressed that the seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim and is not limited to men only. He urged all Muslim to do their best to understand Islam according to the Qu’ran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)   because our righteous deeds and all acts of worship will not be accepted if our faith and Islamic aqidah are deficient.

Sheikh Abdul Ahmad Daramy reiterated that Islam emphasized the importance of knowledge both religious and secular, it does not forbid us from seeking the good things of this world and encouraged all not to search for good things of the world as their main pursuit.  Allah Himself commands us to pray:  He admonished all to encourage each other as Islamic knowledge is like an ocean and everyone will just take a drop as none can be conversant in every aspect of Islam.

In her lecture on the role of women in Islam Mrs. Fartma Zahra Sheriff said that the role of women in Islam is very  important in responsibility and respect, as the Holy Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) said: “Paradise lies at the feet of mothers” which means that the woman’s role as a mother is a sacred one. Islam has emphasized this fact in great fashion by instructing us to respect and care for our mothers.

Fartimah Kamara  In her lecture on the Importance of Hijab cited sura ahzab Qur’an, 33:59 which reads  “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” She emphasized that a woman who wears hijab liberates herself from the vain and selfish desire to show off her beauty and to compete with other women around her.  With the hijab, a woman does not have to live up to society’s expectations of what is desirable, and she no longer has to use her beauty to obtain recognition or acceptance from those around her.

Mrs. Kamara described the Hijab as modest and respectable dress for women: purity: honorable: righteousness: and Hijab is for successful women and believing women. She encouraged women to put on the Hijab for the fairness of Allah only.

Delivering a lecture on the topic the cleanliness in Islam Mrs. Kadiatu Duwai stressed  that cleanliness is obligatory on every Muslim as every Muslim has to wash and cleanse the outer parts of his body several times a day and to keep his face, hands, head and feet clean. She noted that when one in a state of major ceremonial impurity caused by sexual intercourse with legal partner or the ejaculation of semen it is obligatory to take bath before offering prayers or performing any other act of devotion requiring ceremonial purity.

The Center Director Abdul Melik H. Mohamed reiterated that Allah is the sole Creator and Maintainer of the universe, it is to Allah alone  all should direct our worship as Islam teaches us that the only being worthy of worship is Allah . He said understanding Tawhid is key to understanding Islam and the fundamentals of a Muslim’s faith as setting up partners with Allah is the one unforgiveable sin in Islam: “Verily, Allaah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases” (Quran 4:48).
