The annual Women’s day peaceful procession organized by members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria was also held on Sunday 29th Jumadal Thani, 1433 in Kano city in honor of Sayyidatul Nisail alamin, Sayyida Fatimatul Zahra (AS).

Men and children were colorfully dressed with ittihadul Shu’arah at various points of the procession showering praises to Sayyida Zahra (AS), Rasool (SAWA) and pious Ahlul Bait (AS), so also eloquent vocal message of the reason for the day’s procession.

Onlookers were appreciative of the organized and harmonious procession making inquiries about Sayyidatul Nisail Alamin. The youth, among them were engaged in debates on what is the most spectacular part of the procession.   The procession plied kofar mata, IBB road, through various streets of Fagge and terminating at Fagge Friday mosque.

He also elucidated on some virtues of Sayyida Zahra (AS) calling upon all to lead an exemplary Sayyida Zahra (AS) life. More so he called on all to head to the teachings of the leader of the Islamic movement Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) on upholding the rightful status of women in our societies, encouraging and giving a helping hand to women’s education in different fields as well as exhibiting a cordial marital life, taking women as partners in progress rather than second class human beings or slaves.
