Hijab Controversy: God used me to break hijab barrier among lawyers – Amasa Firdaus

The law graduate at the centre of the hijab controversy, Amasa Firdaus has said she was used as an instrument by God.

Recall that the University of Ilorin graduate was in December denied access to the call to bar ceremony which took place at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, for refusing to remove her hijab.

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

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

Firdaus said she does not feel any special for paving way for the use of hijab during the ceremony.

She said; “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.”
