  • Women In Islam - 2017 - Oslo

On the birthday anniversary of Lady Zainab (peace be upon her) – Stand4Hussain organized yet another event with the title “Hijab and Women in Islam”. Stand4Hussain gathered 30 volunteers in one of Oslo’s most crowded areas to introduce the term 'Hijab' to the public and create an open platform for dialogue. They talked about the most important women in Islam such as Lady Mary (pbuh) – the mother of Jesus, Lady Fatima (pbuh) and Lady Khadija (pbuh) – the wife of the holy Prophet (pbuh) and the mother of Lady Fatima (pbuh) and Lady Zainab (pbuh). The volunteers also spread information on women’s position in Islam, their rights and contributions to the society. In addition to handing out free cake and juice, a tent was set up where women could try on the hijab. Further down in Karl Johans street one of our volunteers held a poster with the title "What do you associate with Hijab", and anyone could come up and write what they wanted on the poster. This event took place on Saturday, 29th April 2017.
