Madiha Majoka Sahiba, Secretary Ishaat Lajna Imaillah Bradford reports that Lajna Imaillah Bradford celebrated international women’s day by displaying efforts and achievements of women and to dissipate myths and misconceptions.
It was a perfect opportunity for us to spread awareness about the status of women in Islam and their rights. Hence, displays were set up at three local libraries. In addition to the said displays, Islamic literature and books were also available for the visitors.
The displays also touched upon women’s rights and equality in Islam to clear the misconception regarding the supposed lack of freedom for women in Islam.
By the grace of Allah, we received many positives responses from the library staff and were told that many visitors enjoyed the display.
Alhamdulillah, the displays are still up, longer than originally planned, and catching attention of around 150 people per day.
