Ustaz Sa’eed Abdur-Rauf, an Islamic scholar in Nigeria, has called on women, particularly Muslims, to be accepting of polygamy, insisting that it can help build lasting relationships.
A famous Nigerian Muslim cleric Ustaz Sa'eed Abdur-Rauf, has called on women in general and those of the Islamic faith in particular, to accept the reality of polygamy as an inherent quality of humanity.
According to the Celebritiebuzz.com.gh report sighted by YEN.com.gh Abdur-Rauf was speaking at Ibadan during the 4th Annual Ramadan Lecture o Saturday May 11, 2019.
Abdur-Rauf insisted polygamy was a law of God according to the faith and that women do not need to prevent men from fulfilling their human nature.
“As a Muslim woman, you should know that there is no alternative to it. If your husband brings a new wife, you should be able to endure it. It is not easy, but you must be able to appreciate than endure it,” he said.
The cleric continued: “In every clime, there must be a leader. We have the father as the master of the house while the wife is meant to be subservient. The husband must treat and utilise his powers with fear of God.
We must always be mindful of our hurtful utterances against one another. These utterances sometimes are unpardonable and aggravates the problem of the home-front."
Abdur-Rauf concluded that the problem of marriages only required an expression of piety and fear of God, adding that there would be peace and comfort when the couple are pious and could identify each other’s rights.
