Mass wedding for Muslim converts in Nigeria

World Bulletin / News Desk

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.

what a shame. Islam is the reason for Africa's persistent failure to be anything on the world stage.

WHILE BEING HAPPY AT THE ABOVE NEWS I AM ALSO SADDENED TO LEARN MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN CONVERTED IN A REGION OF KANO BY CHRITISAN MISSIONARIES. MUSLIM MISSIONARIES TO TRY TO CONTACT THESE APOSTATES AND CONVINCE THEM ABOUT THE FALLACIES OF CHRISTIANITY AND BEAUTY OF ISLAM AND TRY TO BRING THEM BACK TO ISLAM. VIGOUROUS EFFORTS SHOULD BE MADE AND EDUCATION SHOULD BE IMPARTED ABOUT THE ABSURDITIES OF CHRISTIAN BELIEFS.
