“The woman is the pillar, the base that supports the family and charged with responsibility to educate the children,” she said.

Olaniyan observed that due to the power of mother and her influence on the family members, especially the children, mothers must comport themselves well and in accordance with Muslim ideas.

The Amirah explained that the trustworthiness and respectability the mother exhibit at home eventually gets to the child and get exposed in the society.
