The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has said unlawful wedding spending is a major cause of the high rate of divorce in our society.
The Sultan made the statement when he spoke at a meeting of Islamic scholars organised by the Sokoto State Zakkat and Endowment Commission, in Sokoto yesterday.
He said :
“Our scholars need to generously inform the people on the effect of the unlawful wedding and other ceremonial spending. This act generates nothing but confusion and unnecessary divorce which has become the disturbing point of discussion in the society.”
