A Muslim organization in Nigeria has held a mass wedding to help converts to the religion start their new life with a stable family.
Having received 3 months in education learning the basics of Islam, around 50 new converts were married off by Sheikh Gumi.
Sheikh Gumi, who is well known for his criticism of the bad behavior of some Muslims who put people off from learning about the beauty of Islam, has been encouraging Nigerian Muslims to help converts integrate into family life through marriage, as converts are sometimes faced with loneliness on losing loved ones who cannot accept their life change.
A growing number of Nigerian Christians are adopting Islam, sometimes in large groups, including a group of 18 ethnic Igbos and a local monarch and a pastor's daughter.
