My husband refused to pray, dissolve our marriage – Housewife

Housewife seeks marriage dissolution because the husband refuses to pray

A housewife, Shamsiya Muhammad, on Wednesday begged a Sharia Court ll, sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State to dissolve her marriage with Sani Adamu, over his refusal to pray.

The complainant, Muhammad, who resides at Tudun Wada, Kaduna, said that she cannot continue with Adamu, because he also does not care for her and always insults her parents whenever they have a misunderstanding, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

“We got married six years ago and we have two children, he paid N40,000 as my bride price, I am willing to return his money and free myself from the union as Islam guides us,’’ she said.

The defendant, Adamu who also resides at Tudun Wada, Kaduna, denied insulting his wife’s parents and said that he prays five times daily. He also said that he loves his wife and prayed the court to give him more time to settle their differences.

Earlier, a witness, Malam Sulaiman Sabo, leader of Kaduna butchers, said that he had made several attempts to settle both parties so that their marriage can continue but to no avail.

“I have sat them down much time to settle them, at my presence they oblige and forgive each other and promise to live in peace. After every meeting with them, bad news follows on the same issues I tried to settle between them, all of them are my neighbors and Adamu’s father is a butcher under my leadership, I tried my best but it’s not working out,’’ Sabo said.

The Judge, Murtala Nasir, after listening to both parties and Sabo, adjourned the case to Sept. 30 for the complainant to bring the N40, 000 she received as bride price for judgment.

The case was adjourned four times at different sittings to enable Malam Sabo to intervene but the wife remained on her stands of seeking divorce.

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thank you!

  2. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb blog!

  3. Thanks for your ideas. One thing we’ve noticed is that banks plus financial institutions know the spending behavior of consumers and as well understand that most people max out and about their credit cards around the getaways. They prudently take advantage of this fact and begin flooding your current inbox as well as snail-mail box using hundreds of no interest APR card offers shortly when the holiday season closes. Knowing that for anyone who is like 98% of all American open public, you’ll jump at the chance to consolidate personal credit card debt and switch balances for 0 APR credit cards.
