Salam aleykum Umm. My name is Salma and I stay in Lagos. I came across your blog just yesterday. I want you and your readers to give their opinion on a matter. I just got a job after a few years of graduation. Unfortunately for me, my employer is asking me to desist from coming to the office with my hijab. In as much as I don't want to compromise my faith, I always remember how hard and long it took me to get this job. I am confused. Should I abide till I am able to convince them that the hijab will not prevent me from working optimally? Or should I forget about the job? Thank you.
***a friend and I had a similar experience in the same Lagos. It can be very traumatic and challenging. Dear readers, do drop your advice to her in the comments section. This same problem is faced by the lot of muslimahs in Nigeria. May Allah have mercy. Ameen
