Title: GROWING RATE OF DIVORCE IN KANO
Post by: abeeda on February 19, 2008, 03:12:38 PM
On jan28 Tell magazine printed a story on the above topic. stories like that of rabi jibrin20, who has been married and divorced twice, and that of zuwaira ibrahim 28, mother of 3 that was sent packing after her husband picked up a second wife, also zainab usman had hardly spent 6 mnths with ha hubby, one of his 3 wives told ha he was fond of marrying young girls and divorcing them.
   Altine Abdullahi who founded an NGO for divorcees said they had registered at least 14,775 but says that number is less than 10% of the total num of divorcees in kano and the actual figure is more than a million. she has led a delegation to the state house of assembly to ask for a special legislation to discourage men from divorcing their wives, she also told the story of a woman 6 months pregnant sent away by ha husband coz she ate a bread meant for his breakfast, it is also widely believed that almost every family in kano has at least 2 divorced women.
       so wat do you all think about this, its cause and solutions.

Abeeda,

This is a very good topic of discussion. I can still remember how some few months ago, Dr. Bala Muh'd of the "Adaidata Sahu", and a columnist with the Weekly Trust Newspaper, did a thorough analysis on it. It is very much a problem.

But I suggest that this topic be moved to the general board that it can be discussed seriously. If we leave it here. Mudacris and Hafsy Lady will destroy it by 1st the bad English ;D ;D ;D Muda speaks ::) and  numerous and often scary smilees Hafsy uses. She may end up bringing one strange jinni -smilee and ask it or him to crush all the men here for divorcing her kin, women. ;D ;D ;D

Me i dey fear wo, me I kuku pick race! Till we meet at the General Board!

What I think is the above is a bl**dy lie. A big, fat one. But  like someone suggested, this should be moved to the gen board. Or the Kano Forum.

Waziri kenan, i think we should start making contributions
pending moving the whole thread to the general board.

Abeeda you have started a topic that was dealt with on
two threads somewhere in this forum, however it is not
out of hand since it is a constant problem deviling our
society.  For ease of discussion, i think members should
just concentrate on the causes before we go for the
solutions:

1.  From my understanding, illiteracy is one of the biggest
     causes of divorce in Kano (Arewa).  And this applies to
     both the man and husband.

2.  Another cause is poverty.

any one else

Picking up from DB...

3. Going into the marriage without thoroughly investigating the background of the two parties involved.

What I mean by that is you have to know the kind of family(ies) one is getting into, in doing so, one is bound to come across some red flags or some kind of differences in terms of what each party(ies) is all about, ex. (culture and up bringing).

This reminds me of a story I heard long time ago, about the time when 'yan changi started to get rich in Nigeria. Around the 80s kenan, when the poor Naira was a beginning to become wretched in comparison with other currencies.
This dan changi became rich, built a nice mansion, got married again to a second wife. Or maybe he had two before, dont know. So feeling full of himself wai shi mai kudi, for whom every woman he calls wife, must bend to, he decided to get married to a third, around the time of Ramadhan. U know how ppl like to get married just before the start of Ramadhan, so that the bride za ta  samu ladan wannan azumin by slaving in the kitchen for Mr Oga and u know how brides are, always out to burge with culinary wonders in their honeymooning days..(men take advantage of that and kuku rush them in for the azumi, so that the bride will make double effort.... azumi and amarci all bundled in one, and suffocate herself over the kerozene stove or the hayakin danyen ichen  ;D ;D).
Anyway, this dan canji got married and his bride came to the house just days before the Ramadhan period. To dayake yana jin yanzu he is almighty in his own house, he told the two older wives that he didnt want to see keyar either of them, and  commanded them to pack upstairs and stay there for the whole duration of the azumi, and not to come down stairs  until he feels the nishadi to see them. The whole ground floor and compound was given over to the new wife. Presumably they had everything they needed upstairs. Maybe irin gidannanne with self contained units... I dont know.... At anyrate the two subservient wives bowed to his whim and packed upstairs for the whole duration of the time he was honeymooning with his bride (presumably). Well the household happened to be the kind whereby there were a lot of retainers. So it was like an extended family thing and in cases like this, when it comes to cooking, everything is done enmasse for a lot of ppl. So this young bride eventually had to cook for the whole household and she found that she couldnt manage something or so. Maybe for a few days she was having problems or so. At any rate, she appealed to the other wives for help or someone told them of her dilemma. The second of the two older wives decided to help her out, but in order to do so, she had to come downstairs. She probably thought to herself that in helping the current favorite, there shouldnt be any harm in it. The hubby will probably not be told and if he was told, he will approve as she had done some good to the flavor of the moment.
After helping out, she quickly went back upstairs. When the hubby came back, he did get to hear about it.. and he told her to vamoose out of his sight......waje road... khalas.... talaq.....

jahili....... >:( >:(

3. Going into the marriage without thoroughly investigating the background of the two parties involved.
Or without really knowing what marriage is. You can put this as number 4, or it may still fall under illiteracy. But sincerely, a good understanding of what is marriage, who is what in it, and where each party stands in it is needed by our people. Even the parents need to know thier place in the marriage of thier children, cuz some marriages are a result of impressions made by parents, and some seperations are impressions made by parents too. Everyone needs to learn his place and what it means...


Safety and peace

I think it is more of kwadayi and ruwan ido depending on the gender.Not all marraiges began sadly.Some actaully had love as their foundations,or infatuations or even lust'you name it.There has to be a feeling of some sort in some of the marriages if not most.The question should be more of 'what happened to the love and trust?'

Kwadayi is one of the major problems women face these days. It might be love from the begining but after some time the wall  begins to crack.There are things that might contribute to the cracking of the wall.Friends,family or even the man himself if he happens to be stingy(and that might not be the impression she had on him when they were courting.He probably brought her heaven on earth).

Ruwan ido.Major problem a man has.A man always assumes that that woman he see outside his marrital home will be better than the woman he kept at home.Usaully,his sence of reasoning is blocked by what he sees and will try what ever way he can think of to make that woman his.If he does succeed,brilliant but in most cases,that is when katala go burst.He will begin to realize: 'ah ah! ashe duk daya ne!!! what was i thinking?!!!'. If it happens that he is one of those unfortunate men that have brains the size of a pea,he will continue to make that mistake over and over and over again and that is where auri saki comes in.

Here's a similar story of just how cheap and easy marriage and  divorce have become....
This guy also rich (Alhajin birni) had a wife. His wife had a best friend. He began to fancy the best friend. he approached her with marital designs. She fobbed him off claiming his wife was her best friend and added 'Kuma ba abin da zai iya raba mu!'
'Is that so?' he asked 'OK'.
He went to the wife: 'Ke wannan mutuniyar taki fa.. ahem.. wallahi fa ba laifi'
 Wife: 'haba maigida! ai ba za ta ci amana ta ba! kut da kut muke... kuma ba abin da zai iya raba mu!! haba baza ta yarda ba!'
Maigida: 'Haka ika ce?' conspiracy ne abin?' Shakes his head and goes away.
He began to make plans. he wooed and wooed and wooed this best friend... jewels, money, attention, promises... har sai da ta yarda. Akayi buki ta tare.
The day after, he gathered the two women together...
'Kunce ba abin da zai iya raba ku.  To yau na raba ku!! Kuma ko wacce ta kwashe kayan ta ta barmun gidana!'

He had achieved his aim.

LOL...i didn't mean that.
It is just so unbelievable that a man would think of seperating a successful relationship.
The prophet said that babu aljanna for anyone da ya tsinka zumunchi.

As bee said,most maza kwadayi ne yake damun mu.
It is quite sad how the issue of divorce is taken lightly in our judicial system
as if it has not been frowned upon by our religion.
Allah na tuba amma wani lokacin har da iyayen da su matan da suke amincewa
da irin masu auri-saken nan. You'll hear that this guy has married and divorced
5 or so wives and you believe you could change him?
If to say irin na turawa muke such that if you divorce her she gets to get a large
chunk of your wealth then it wouldn't have been so rampant.
Title: Re: GROWING RATE OF DIVORCE IN KANO
Post by: HUSNAA on February 20, 2008, 03:37:04 PM
One other problem with maza is that  suna zaune lafiya with their wives. Wives de rufa musu asiri, by supplementing the tight family budget with a little petty trading on the side. All of a sudden Allah Ya budo wa maigida wata hanyar arzuki, maybe the wife is instrumental to its happening ma. To after a while, zaka ga ya fara canza hali. The more money he makes the more he changes in his attitude. The first to suffer is the wife. Wa'yanda suke tuna baya sune suke dan raga mata in fitinar su mazan ta taso. but namiji that thinks like a typical nouveau riche always gives his wife the porcupine simply bcos he has become the next mr jones.
I used to marvel.. really marvel that most of my contemporaries, the women of my generation that I grew up with and went to sch with, have ended up single again. I counted my sisters cronies at one time.. and there wasnt a single one of them not divorced at that time.. really marvellous... :-\ :-\ :-\

Almost all thats to be said have been said by our esteemed members. As always; bana rasa abin tofawa. And now I'll inshaAllah find a cassete presented by one great scholar here in Kano on the issue. He impeccably explained every bit on the issue very expertly. Think you'll enjoy his seven points that lead to that rampant burst-up of marriages more expecially in Kano and other northern states of the country.

Assalamu alaikum,
....... Former Beatle Paul McCartney was Monday ordered to pay nearly $50M to his estranged wife as their long-running divorce saga came to an end.

Mills and McCartney, pictured before divorce proceedings, married in 2002 and have a young daughter.
 Heather Mills told reporters she was "so, so happy" with the outcome of her fight for a share of the pop legend's fortune, as court documents named the final figure as £24.3 million ($48.7M).

Mills had demanded almost $250 million of McCartney's estimated $1.6 billion. The ex-Beatle said she should receive $31.7 million.

Judge Hugh Bennett said that the total value of all of McCartney's assets was actually $800 million, a figure disputed by Mills.

The couple's four-year-old daughter is also to receive about $70,000 per annum, the court ruled. McCartney must also pay for the child's nanny and school fees.

Mills insisted the couple's split in 2006 was not acrimonious regardless of newspaper reports of an acrimonious breakup.

"It was an amicable parting, despite what you read," she said.

I personally know a person who marries 2 wifes every six months. He already has 2 (standard wifes) whom he doesnt divorce. But the remainding empty 2 spaces are re-filled every SIX months. One comes in a week after the other. But after six months, they are all fired. And the sad thing is that many people know his character and still when he comes to ask for their daughters hand they agree. Allah ya tsare al'umar mu da irin wannan.

There is this documentry I watched about an Island dont know the name. The people are muslim, what they did is they made marriage so cheap so every man can marry and divorce as easy as possible. there reason was to carve adultry and fornication.

Guess what? I agree with them. But I kinda think they are taking advantage of Sharia that gives room for divorce and marriage, because I know DIVORCE is the HALAL Allah Almighty hates.

The good news: If you see a girl and you like all you need is tie the knot, 'hit it' (legally) and divorce.

IBB this ur post is misleading... The marriage tied with ever an assumption that it'll sieze in a near or latter future is not valid. One cannot set an expiry date to a marriage, especially beforee it is made. Then what difference would it be with the  likes of mutta'a. Marriage is no joking matter irrespect of what you may have heard on this forum, or elsewhere. Mrriage is an institution with alot of departments and units that is bound to test anyone as a person in character and faith.

The Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) Said "He/She who follows my sunnah and marries, have done 50% of his Ibadah, and he who doesnt marry is not with me"

By God marriage is beyond just sexual pleasure, or showing off kids etc, do not fall to that pretext

May Safety and peace be with u

The reason why marriages should last as long as possible is because of the issues that spring from the unions... that is kids. Its not good for their stability to have a driftwood kind of life whereby the parents are  split. Then every other month or so the parents end up with a completely different partner. That kind of life happens in the general animal kingdom, but what happes is that the parents completely shake off the responsibility of the offspring after a few yrs when the animal can do everything for itself. Then the mother (the last to leave) goes off and abandons the offspring in search of a mate.. and that is the end of the bond between them.
Surely that is exactly what will happen in a society where marriage and divorce are so fluid.

Gosh! Thats very sad. Why because those who know nothing or little about the religion would definitly think this is along the side with Islamic precepts while it is not, entirely. And more dishearten is; may be this documentry is broadcated on an internation media. Kai! :o

Any way, whoever Allah wishes would understand this religion will do so, whatever he sees notwithstanding. Dama already ire-iren things done by Shi'ites, for example, during Ashura, always angers me savegely, wallahi.

Assalamu alaikum,

Before the Kano divorcees’ street protest       
Written by Is’haq Modibbo Kawu     
Thursday, 22 January 2009 

In 1995, I made a package for the BBC’s NETWORK AFRICA program on the problem of divorce in Kano. As part of my research, I spoke with intellectuals at Bayero University and had the epiphany that many women in Kano actually visited with Malams who also double as marriage consultants of a sort. I interviewed one somewhere off Zoo Road in the Hausawa Quarters of the city and was surprised that one of his clients was the wife of a leading political figure in Kano at the time. I knew the lady in question as a post graduate student at BUK. It was obvious to me, that there was a serious problem with matrimony in Kano, with its very high divorce rate!

The 1995 episode came to my mind, when I read the report in SUNDAY TRUST of January 11, 2009, that Kano’s divorcees were planning a mass street protest by the end of this month. The plan was attributed to Hajiya Attine Abdullahi, who was described as the Executive Director of the little known National Association of Divorcees, Widows and the Orphans of Nigeria, to highlight the growing divorce rate and “insufficient husbands in Kano (that is a very serious matter!)”. Hajiya Attine promised a “one million divorcee” march and promises that it will be “the biggest in the history of Nigeria”! And what a sight that would be on the Sharia-compliant streets of Kano!

Hajiya Attine’s Association had addressed the press at the end of an emergency meeting, prompted among other reasons, by the incidences of divorce that have become “a growing social problem bedeviling the communities of Kano State”; and the fact that the Kano State House of Assembly has been unable to redeem a three year old pledge to initiate laws against the menace. The divorcees’ association wants the one million person street manifestation “to protest against the outrageous number of divorcees currently sent out of their matrimonial homes and of which no one is doing anything”. And if they have forgotten, Hajiya Attine reminded the responsible officials of state, that society faces “a serious social problem that has the capacity to impact negatively on the social fabric of any society that has chosen to neglect it”.

Furthermore, Hajiya Attine underlined the raison for the anger of members of the National Association of Divorcees, Widows and the Orphans of Nigeria: neglect. “It is this seemingly neglect (SIC) that we will come out to protest and we hope the rally will equally create awareness on the plight of these mothers as well as draw the attention of the community to this serious social problem that is not viewed with the seriousness it deserves”. The divorcees are unhappy that their developmental roles in society are not adequately recognized and the rally will raise such awareness amongst the leadership of the state. But they also have a message for the offending husbands as well. “We hope (to)… also draw the attention of our husbands who should know one million divorcees that will be on the street on that day are their failure for keeping their home fronts”! This is a naming and shaming exercise of a very novel type in Nigeria in general, and Kano in particular!

But if any reader thinks that this is a freak issue on the margins of a deformed democracy, you better think again, because our reporter said that last year, a committee of the state government in Kano, comprising of NGOs (was the National Association of Divorcees included?), the Ministry of Women Affairs and even Adaidaita Sahu (the morality enforcer in Kano) came out with a report which said that over 80% of Kano marriages were “unstable”! Again, that is very worrisome. The committee attributed the problem to the absence of sincerity during courtship; ignorance about the religious status of the marriage institution; economic down turn; working women phenomenon (whatever that meant!) and materialism in marriage! The truth is that marriages are endangered in Kano and it threatens the fabric of the family. I know a leading son of Northern Nigeria, who will not to allow his daughters to marry men from Kano, because he said they mistreat their wives and rush to divorce them!

It is clear that we must think through this problem of divorce and find ways to help stem them. We cannot build a stable community on the very slippery foundation of divorce; children must have the stable ambience to grow in order to reproduce the future of our culture. In this construction of societal continuity, men have to assume responsibilities which help the survival of matrimony with its stresses and strains. We must also fight the culture of patriarchy and chauvinism which refuses to recognize the role of the woman in a fast changing world.  Similarly, education and liberation for women must also mean an added sense of responsibility in matrimony and society, to help strengthen the community and our nation.

Its true engineer. The Hisba and teh police stopped it. Thank God. I mean the whole thing won't achive anything other kaskanci ga matan. Plus we all know how Kano can be volatile. Any form of demonstration and rally can be seized by 'yan iskan gari. We've enjoyed relative peace for some time, so talk of such demonstrations is naturally received with trepidation. I'm happy it is stopped. It is even embarrasing.

u surprise me Bakangizo, you only speak to one side forgeting
that the other side also has same right.  even if kano is going
to boil down saboda yan'iska which the government could not
control despite the resources at its disposal will never be an
excuse to stop a meaningful and law abiding citizen from performing
his constituted given right.

remember you are talking of 1 million divorcees, orphans and widows,
1 million is a good number to be heard compared to the total number
of population in kano state.  ko kana son kace min yan iskan kano
sun kai 1 million?  Haba Rainbow!!!!!!!!!!

if hisbah and the police have succeeded in stoping the rally today,
definitely, time will come when their number have multiplied to 2 million
neither hisbah nor police or even military can stop them from what they
intend to do.

why are we so naive when it comes to women? lokacin taron siyasa
we followed them right into their houses, at the mosques, at their work
place and everywhere we see them we seek for their votes, its not
a shame for a woman who is breastfeeding to come out under the heat
of the sun waiting to vote - buts its a shame for her to come out and
protest her right ko?

maza wallahi kuji tsoron Allah.

I do not believe that the constitution allowed such demonstrations to be conducted by any one or group of persons, under any guise without authority' permit. I know all of us have the constitutional right of expressing our views and pursue them rightly. In this divorcee demonstration, I  see something sinister behind the move. If the proponents are true moslems, then let them pray and keep hoping that The Almighty SWT acceeds to their prayers for husbands. If they dare go out, then their former husbands should also demonstrate on "WHY" the wives left them in the first place!

Post by: Dan-Borno on January 23, 2009, 02:39:22 PM
EMTL and Waduz i also disagree with you except if you
can come up with a Qur'anic injunction or any saying by
Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam regarding this issue - if not
i consider not allowing this women demonstrate as a
great violation of their right.  You must agree with me
that whenever demonstration is staged, then its in regard
to their right been denied in the first place.  And as i
keep on saying, one day, we must listen to them just
as it happens as far back as 1990, when a group of 47
women staged a demonstration in saudi arabia to press
their claim for the right to drive. The government confiscated
the women's passports, and those employed as teachers
were fired. The previously unofficial ban on women's driving
quickly became official.  what happenes after 18 years?
saudi government is thinking of reversing its earlier decision
and willing to allow women drive -

tell me that the Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam did not encourage
muslims to marry widows?

most of the divorce cases in arewa are at the instance of the
men not women!! if truly men have understood the saying of
the prophet that women are like a our ribs, when you try
stretching it, they will break - abi we don forget this one?

when women were not allowed to wear on their hijab in the
west, muslim women all over the world protested - me kuka ce
game da wannan kuma?

Malam Waduz, yes, dole sai da permit, but obtaining the permit
is for the information of the police only.  peaceful demonstration
is something to be encouraged in a democratic setup like nigeria,
because this is the only means a poor man's voice will be heard.

i am surprised da kace wai let them pray and keep hoping that
the Almighhty SWT accepts their prayer for husbands.  their demand
is not only husbands, they are drawing the attention of the government
to their plight as divorcees, widows and orphans which the government
have neglected over a period of time.  Abi is it not the duty of the
government to offer social welfare to this category of people?

i dont regard this as a show of shame.

Assalamu alaikum,
Dan barno Demostrations or zanga-zanga entails going out on streets, airing views, sometimes with songs, etc., etc.

All above are forbidden for women by the Shariah, the rule is the same for all adults women- married or spinsters, widow, divorcee, Zawar (you know what Zawar means in kanuri, ko? 

I will like to quote some verses of Glorious quran to support above.
In Suratul Nur, Allah (SWT) warns the Muslims women:
“And stay quietly in your houses and make not a dazzling display like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Apostle. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye! Members of the Family and to make you pure and spotless." Q (33: 32-33)

In the book Makaaremul Akhlaq, one tradition is quoted from Imam Sadiq (AS) on the authority of
“And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear therof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, or their brothers’ sons or their sisters’ sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.” (Quran 24:31).

Allah (SWT) says to the Holy Prophet (SAW), “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.” (Quran 33:59)

Obedience and Loyalty to leaders: In Suratul Nisa'i Allah (SWT) says, "Oh you who believe, obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you." Q (4: 59)

The Holy Prophet (SAW) in the following Hadith explicated the above verse as narrated by Abu Hurairah (RAA), 'The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "It is obligatory for you to listen to the ruler and obey him in adversity and prosperity, in pleasure and displeasure, and even when another person is given (rather undue) preference over you." This Hadith underscores the importance of loyalty and obedience to the leader.

Therefore Islam do not permit the followers to stage public demostrations against their leaders. And i would like to understand:
What will these sisters gain by going to the streets carrying placards, and may be shouting, singing?
Parading their beauties to all and sundry, non-Muslims, etc.?
What of the negative news that would definately come out of this show of shame?

On the other hand I doubt any body (man) in his right senses would marry and divorce his wife, may be she is even the mother of their children, for the fun of it.
There is need for every body to be very careful before choosing who to marry,
Both the husband the wives must fear Allah (SWT) and persevere in this worship (married life), etc.

To my brothers in Islam let me remind you of the following Hadith of our beloved Prophet (SAW):
Ishaq Ibne Ammar who says, I asked him (AS),"What is the right of a woman over her husband?" He (AS) replied, "To feed her, to clothe her and if she commits some silly mistake or error he must forgive her."

I disagree with you ETML. Ba lallai ne sai an yi wakewake da kade kade da raye raye da fadan ra'a yoyi ba. Have u never heard of being seen but not heard? Dont you know that it is more powerful and significant if the women  marched in complete silence? Where would be the harm in that? Besides knowing our type of society, every woman wanting to participate will definitely be in hijab. If there is to be any trouble, it will be instigated by the juvenile louts and redundant members of the society, and that is where the Hisbah should come in handy in PROTECTING the women against being intimidated by those who think it is unworthy and humiliating for the women to stage a peaceful demonstration as supported by some worthy members of this board (ahem).


I will like to quote some verses of Glorious quran to support above.
In Suratul Nur, Allah (SWT) warns the Muslims women:
“And stay quietly in your houses and make not a dazzling display like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Apostle. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye! Members of the Family and to make you pure and spotless." Q (33: 32-33) ]

Pertaining to the ayah of suratul Nur, then it becomes incumbent upon you MEN to OBEY that particular ayah regarding women staying quietly in their homes by not THROWING THEM OUT ON THE STREETS IN THE NAME OF DIVORCING THEM! IF YOU HADNT DONE THAT,  AND IF THE SO CALLED SHARIA LED GOVTS OF NORTHERN NIGERIA HAD SEEN IT FIT TO PROVIDE SOME SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC WELFARE TO THE DIVORCEES, AS WELL AS A MEANS OF DETERRING MEN FROM MINDLESSLY DIVORCING WOMEN, THEN THE WOMEN WOULDNT HAVE THE NEED OR INCLINATION TO MAKE THEIR WORRIES KNOWN PUBLICLY!!!! YOU CONVENIENTLY FORGET THAT DIVORCE ESPECIALLY IN NORTHERN NIGERIA IS THE PREROGATIVE OF THE MAN, NOT THE WOMAN, THUS IN OTHER WORDS IT'S A PROBLEM PRECIPITATED ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY IN ALL ITS RAMIFICATIONS BY MEN RATHER THAN WOMEN.

Allah (SWT) says to the Holy Prophet (SAW), “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.” (Quran 33:59)

When going abroad,. So women are allowed to go out. If women are allowed that priviledge then surely they can go out and protest ill treatment? Or do you not think divorcing women indiscriminately amounts to ill treatment, especially when the authorities are doing nothing to stop it?

and Loyalty to leaders: In Suratul Nisa'i Allah (SWT) says, "Oh you who believe, obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you." Q (4: 59)

The Holy Prophet (SAW) in the following Hadith explicated the above verse as narrated by Abu Hurairah (RAA), 'The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "It is obligatory for you to listen to the ruler and obey him in adversity and prosperity, in pleasure and displeasure, and even when another person is given (rather undue) preference over you." This Hadith underscores the importance of loyalty and obedience to the leader.

It is obligatory to listen and obey leaders in adversity, pleasure displeasure etc, when the leaders' guidance is correct and true and not negligent as is the case of our leaders today. Ko nayi karya ne?



Therefore Islam do not permit the followers to stage public demostrations against their leaders.
I dont believe that!! I have no evidence now to support my refutation of yr statement, but I am sure if I do enough research I shall come up with evidence to discredit that statement you made. Let me just give u two pointers as to why I think u are wrong in that sweeping statement.
When Hadrat Umar RA was Caliph, he tried to impose a limit to the mahr (dowry) of a woman whereupon an elderly lady got up and challenged him for doing so and he accepted her arguments and was dissuaded from carrying out the imposition. It may not amount to what you will call a public demonstration against a leader in the literal sense but it was nevertheless
 (a) a protest and demonstration of women's rights, and
 (b) it was done in public and
 (c) finally it was a challenge to the leaders to do right and this is what the women's demonstration that was supposed to take place was all about!

The second pointer was when Hajjaj ibn Yusuf was made governor of Iraq , he was said to have been  brutal and tyrannical, however, Anas ibn Malik was one of the few who opposed him publicly, to the extent that ppl feared for the life of Anas, whereupon Anas ibn Malik told them that he always recited a prayer (for standing up to tyrants) given to him by the Prophet SAW before facing Hajjaj ibn Yusuf. So in a way, Islam does give ppl rights to challenge their leaders when they are not doing their jobs properly, and I am sorry to say that our current leadership is not doing its job properly!
 


 
i would like to understand:
What will these sisters gain by going to the streets carrying placards, and may be shouting, singing? parading their beauties to all and sundry, non-Muslims, etc.?
.
What u claim in this statement ETML is pure unadulterated quazafi (!!!!), and the classic gestapo way of twisting the truth to suit a purpose!! How do you know that that is the intention of the women? Are u a psychic, or have you seen the like of such a demonstration before and what transpired in it, for u to unequivocally make such a libellous statement?

 
What of the negative news that would definately come out of this show of shame?
Who says it's a show of shame? this is another unequivocal statement which happens to be riddled with uncertainties!!! This would have been a reality show(!!) of what the Hausa society or northern nigerian muslim society has been reduced to. If it were to be  a show of shame, it will be  because  it's the men and leadership of our society who will end up being shamed into realizing the unpalatable truth of their cavalier attitude towards the marital institution in all its ugliness. That, like the proverbial ostrich with its head buried in the sand, is what the men in our society don't want to own up to or be faced with!!!

On the other hand I doubt any body (man) in his right senses would marry and divorce his wife, may be she is even the mother of their children, for the fun of it.
ETML, I've read through all the recent posts of this thread (albeit hurriedly) and lo and behold what have I found? a
contradiction of the above quoted statement and by none other than yr respected self:

quote:
I know a leading son of Northern Nigeria, who will not to allow his daughters to marry men from Kano, because he said they mistreat their wives and rush to divorce them!
unquote.

For my part this is a very telling confession from this pillar of society, and going by yr observation or doubts on the sanity of the man who regards the marital institution flippantly, then the majority of northern nigerian men  are not in their right senses (assuming the majority resides in Kano, since Kano state takes the cake in being the most populous state in the country). This goes to show you that there is a canker and a worm somewhere in our society which needs to be rooted out.

Lol EMTL believe me I wrote this piece with  cold blooded dispassion. I am as calm as the dead sea. I am not disagreeing with any hadiths or the Qur'anic injunctions. I am disagreeing with the way you men take out of them what u want and disregard what u find not palatable. Just take the case of waduz who was saying something about marrying widows and divorcees, that what's the need when u can marry virgins? True one can marry virgins, but isnt it sort of perpetuating the problem when one doesnt see fit to marry a widow or divorcee, simply because there are virgins to be had? and who told Waduz that every girl/woman who has yet to get married will be found to be a virgin? Most virgins these days are second new if Waduz doesnt know!!!
Bayan haka kuma, if u look at the prophet's life and his marriages, only one of his wives was a virgin, all the rest were widows and divorcees. So if men want to be holier than thou, please emulate the prophet. That was his way of eliminating the problem of xs widows and divorcees left on the shelf.

Hmm...Engineer kenan. And kaima DB. There's world of difference between what I said and what you two thought I meant by it. Wallahi I don't mean any disrespect neither I do mean any harm, abuse, or whatsovever. Aren't we so much use to jokes on this very board? Haba don Allah. Wallahi your statements scare the heck out of me. I never thought... :-X

Let me express my stand, I maybe will be more understood. Here it goes;

To me, for women to come out en-mass and match in the name of either peacefull or destructive demostration, is utterly aberrational and absolutely something contrary to the actual teaching of Islam and of the prophet Muhammad (SAW). For, to say one proof, I have never heard of any Hadith where Muslim women protested during the reign of the prophet or his companions. Is there? Think there's none. Pls if there is I urge anyone here who knows to come up and say it.

Moreover, these women are those who think they are wise or civilised or whatsoever. And thus they have "right" to air and televise their anger and wants. They are, either you do believe or not, simply succumbed by whats call psychological war or Western tutulege or call it whatsoever. And psychological war fare is more devastating than physical one.

Wallahi I personally will not regard anyone of them, for I certainly know you'll never live with her peacefully.

Kai got lots to say as well as lots to do on the web. Better halt here.

I remain yours

Intresting stuff, lemme be simple and say its not just kano i think its mostly in northern nigeria
that the increased divorce rates are occurring.
What i would say here is that women should be allowed to voice out, its like barin kashi a ciki
baya maganin yunwa, in order for people to understand whats happening you need to express
yourself even if its not by talking ai facial expressions ma is enough for some one to understand a situation, (obviously like hajaj mentioned early: every woman wanting to participate will definitely be in hijab. If there is to be any trouble, it will be instigated by the juvenile louts and redundant members of the society, and that is where the Hisbah should come in handy in PROTECTING the women against being intimidated by those who think it is unworthy and humiliating for the women to stage a peaceful demonstration.)

I dont see any harm in that, a women divorced over maybe something da bay kai ya kawo ba or i might be wrong it may be something bigger, but what ever the situation it requires both parties to settle the matter and that divorce should be the ultimate and final thing to be carried out if the matter still goes unsettled ( i mean like if the situation is like of the hook), but not forgetting to indulge in prayer, who said that a marriage life would always be sweet roses, Guys needs to settle their anger and stop looking for an easyway out and ladies pls ahankali.

i think ive said enough here, pls dont throw shoes and watever ur hands can get cos am just givin out wat i see.

My disaproval for the demonstration stems from my respect for the women. I don't honestly believe anything good will come out of it other than ridicule and mockery for the womenfolk. I don't know for you people,. but I personally wouldn't want to see my sister/mother/cousin on the street carrying placard and singing or shouting, telling the world that she's a divorsee and is seeking justice. I know our society. They would just be turned to a laughing stock. There's no dignity in it. If any of you supporters of the planned demo think it would bring about anything positive, you are gravely mistaken. I laughed when I read some ppl here saying the demonstration would be silent and the women would wear hijab. That's naive, or rather wishful, thinking. Did the planners of the demo told you so? Do you have any guarantee that it would be so? Is that even the issue? What guarantee do you have that the demo won't be hijacked and the women molested, mocked and/or jeered at?

So if you will take a second and consider it dispassionately, and situate the whole issue within the context of our society/culture and, most importantly, religion, you will see that it is not in the best interest of anyone, especially the women. We may be so passionate and try all sorts of linguistic gymnastics, but there's no way you can convince any sensible muslim that Islam does not frown at a woman moving on the street demonstrating. Think also that a great number of those women planning to take to the street are not blameless about their situation. Some of them caused the breakup of their marriages. A lot had turned their homes into hellholes for thier husbands, leaving them no option but to divorce them. Conversely a lot are victims of men's selfishness and disregard for holy matrimony. Saboda haka in bera da sata, daddawa da wari. Kowa da nasa laifin. So in as much as I feel strongly about the situation, and I hate what our marriages are turning into, I don't think for a second that a street demonstration is the solution or a step in the right direction.

Post by: Lawwali on January 28, 2009, 05:32:18 PM
Ma'assalam,
I initially decided to keep mute, because the rate at which women are divorced in Northern Nigeria and kano in particular is as astonishing and alarming as it is being carried out with men impunity. The only fact that men are considering the rope (igiyar aure) given by ALLAH in their Hands as a means to "hire and fire" any woman at any time they deemed fit startle me most.

But this is clear indication of the level of religious illiteracy in the people are considered as the religious guide of the ummah. The whole Islamic concept of marriage and establishing family has been grossly undermined collectively by us ( the society).

How can an Imam tie the rope of a marriage between the couples that he did not know? the Prophet (SAW) have never done so, How should a father or the Waliy presided over a marriage with a parson he has never interracted with? How sickly do you percieve a parents that cannot swear to the moral rectitude of their in-laws?. These are the examples of how recklessly and carelesly we are treating marriage issue.

The Divorce itself has been taken softly by our Ulama'a. I cannot uptill now understand the interpretation our scholars are given to the Qu'anic Verse in Surah TALAQ ( Wa ash hi duu zawai adlin minkum. wa aqeemush shahadata lillah), Meaning "AND YOU KEEP TWO TRUSTWORTHY WITNESSES AMONGST YOU. AND UPHELD THE WITNESSTH FOR ALLAH" . Now, If as enshrined by this Verse, One has go and look for trustworthy people (2NO) from the community How do you think Divorce will be this easy, just like removing one's shirt? And this was supported by a prophetic saying that Divorce is a Permisseable act that ALLAH dislikes.

Although some interpretes the Verse as refering to contracting the marriage, But I strongly argue that the whole surah was dedicated to Divorce, and if the prophet will say Divorce is a Halal that ALLAH dislikes i dont see reason in saying the verse is refering to contracting the marriage. It is only logical that if ALLAH dislikes something HE provides adequate protection to it, which HE did in this verse, and infact in the whole Surah various steps were given on how to Divorce a wife. But Here we tried vehemently to Attribute our failure to our religion.

Moreover, In the Surah NISA'I, (DEdicated to women) ALLAH has prescribed a process of settling Disputes between Husband and wife:
In this Verse ALLAH says: WALLATI TUKHA FUUNA NUSHUZA HUNNA, FA'IZU HUNNA, WAH JURUU HUNNA FIL MADHAJI'I, WADHRIBUU HUNNA. In other place HE says FAB'ATHUU HAKMAN MIN AHLIHI WA HAKMAN MIN AHLIHA, IN YU REEDAA ISLA HAN YUWAFFIQILLAHU BAINIHIMA............

You in the Above Qur'anic provisions there are steps before divorce ( which is the last resort):

1. FA'IZUU HUNNA that is preach to them, counsel them
2. WAH JURUU HUNNA FIL MADHAJI'I, that is refrain from sleeping on their Beds, Avoid them
3. WADHRIBUU HUUNA, that is slaps them reasonably
4.FAB'ATHU HAKMAN MIN AHLIHI WA HAKMAN MIN AHLIHA..............., that is call a meeting of the representatives of the Couples in dispute if they really maen to resolve ALLAH will favor both of them
5. WA ASH HIDUU ZAWAI AFLINMINKUM, as above.

untill we follow these steps we are in danger of ramphant divorce.

BKG I respect yr views and I believe in what u said, that it isnt possible to have a demonstration albeit a silent one with women in full hijab, because of the way our society operates. That is to say that the women will be molested by ruffians that goes without saying even if they are silent and in full hijab. But that is just the crux of the problem. Because yr thinking is the thinking of most typical northern nigerian muslim men. You cant think outside the box for a minute and see that it is  possible for women to protest without going against religious edicts. If the men can agree for the women to stage a peaceful and silent protest, with placards even (whats wrong with that?) who is to say that the women would be made a laughing stock? If they are to be jeered at, it will be becos  men allowed the jeering to take place. And like I said, the HISBAH should be there to serve as a protecting umbrella against hooligans and that sort of thing.
I honestly dont know about Islam frowning at women demonstrating. I rather think it is the muslim men who frown at women demonstrating in the streets rather than Islam. The verse of the Qur'an pertaining to a woman's staying at home was not revealed to restrict women against reacting to oppression, which is what women experience on a daily basis. You (men) dont want women to demonstrate but you do not treat women in the manner which should make such actions unnecessary and neither does anyone of you care to alleviate the problems women are going through.

Oh Muhsin, I am one of those women who think they are wise or civilized or whatever ( I really am, I'm not being sarcastic). I also believe I have the right to air my anger and wants. If they be televized, why not? I shall be highlighting what many other women are going through but cannot make their grievances known because they are intimidated through lack of education and exposure etc. Likewise I do have a western tutelage or what ever u choose to call it, and I doubt you will be able to live peacefully with me as you so aptly put it.
One last thing I would like to add is that no matter what anyone thinks of me or what others may choose to see as my abberant points of view, I am answerable to no one except Allah SWT.
DB thanks for yr support.

Allah Shi miki albarka Ameera. This is some of the issues that we are talking about. Kuma the only ppl doing anything to alleviate the suffering of these unfortunate VVF victims are NGOS, and foreign doctors who come to operate on these poor girls. What are the men in our society doing about it? Not a damn thing except to divorce the girls when they get VVF. Like u said, namiji ya auri yarinya, ta kasa haihuwa, ta sami wannan larurar and all of a sudden she becomes repulsive to him.

So they feel as if what ever they do, they are immune to retribution and recknoning in the hereafter. It is rather like the attitude of Jews mentioned in the Qur'an that the Jews feel they will be in hell for a few days only, and after that, they will be transferred to paradise. Those conversant with the Holy Qur'an know only too well irin challenge din da aka jefa musu in the Qur'an regarding that attitude. Thus men beware in case that challenge encompasses you also.

I vehemently Disagree with you sani Danbaffa, Just as Husna said, there is not categorical sanction in islam which prohibits women to demonstrate or protest injustice or discrimination. We were told by Historians that during the era of Caliph Umar (RA), a woman protested in his presence when he (umar) wanted to put a limit on Dowry (sadaqi) for women, and he agreed with her. He did not say she cannaot talk in public (mosque) because she is a woman.
  what i want us to know is that the more we confines our women the more we prown them to accepting western ideologies that Islam Has deprives them of their Rights. You can see how this campaign has effectively rooted in our society now, to such an extent that even glaringly prohibited things were being challenged by our women, e.g Climbing Achaba.

  I also found your thinking that demonstration of women is watsewa as myopic
  And also maza nagari masu Hakuri are only produced by the society (refer to my last post above)
What i add is to say such kind of demonstration needs a careful planning and effective control, which i think the organisers are not capable of doing, also because of our sick society.

  Wa Alaikassalam,
 Uncle EMTL, i became confused when i found you soft pedalling on this issue towards emencipating our society from this monster we inflicted on ourselves and our society, I want to believe most of our problems today stems from family Background. Tell me if the mother was divorced, father as careless as the one who can divorce just to satisfy his ego (aunty Husna's post), what will be the fate of the child or children if not BARA (begging), prostitution etc. My thinking is that uncle EMTL will champion the cause of rectifying the problem from the Grass root (Family), instead of from answer to the Question. Please we needed people of your calibre to lead the vanguard for emanciation of the ummah from the menace of ramphant divorce. If you wiil refer to my first post under this thread, I am afraid let's no we will be marrying a non properly divorced divorcees. kaga aure kan aure kenan, wal iyaz billah.

Kash! an otherwise very good topic for discussion, has been turned into camps! The Husnaa camp and the EMTL camp! I do not belong to any camp, but I agree with what one Sani Danbaffa said,. That, its not in "our" character to behold our ladies demonstrating on the streets.
Every one should know that our women are to be highly revered and respected. Apart from being our mothers, they also form part of our lives. Men do not have a better patner than a woman, and vice versa.
If the truth is to be told, those ladies contemplating demonstrating on the streets cannot be true moslems! A woman remains a "woman" no matter what any one thinks! Nagode, Sani.

Assalamu alaikum,
Waduz, I have joined your camp............... this ends the 'she' says 'he' says. I also agree with what one Sani Danbaffa said and your secondment. That, its not in "our" character to behold our ladies demonstrating on the streets. Every one should know that our women are to be highly revered and respected. Apart from being our mothers, they also form part of our lives. Men do not have a better patner than a woman, and vice versa. Thanks! Nagode, Sani, Lawalli & Waduz.

I have seen in many communities where 'Komitin sulhu' and 'komitin gajiyayyu' solve lots of family problems. Allah (SWT) ya sanya mu a hanya mafi dacewa.

Kai Jama'a! Waduz da ETML. The problem is that all the reverence and respect for women is just talk. In reality many men do not respect women at all. The only woman who gets the respect of any man is his mother, period; and that also because of tsaurin da Allah Ya dora wa namiji game da mahaifiyar sa. Its not in the character of northern nigerian men to behold their women demonstrating in the street. To ai mazn ne su ka kai matan har bango, that is why. As for what DB said, ni banga abin da yafada ba that merits such condemnation from ETML. Gaskiya kurum ya fada. Men have failed! Or is it now blasphemy to say men have failed?

Kai kai kai! I beg to disagree that, "the only woman who gets the respect of any man is his mother." I believe that we cannot all the same, devilish, quarellsome, termagant and ingrate husbands and wives. There are millions of husbands that cherish their wives with due respect and recognition. One can say the respect to his mother is above the one he showers upon his wife. It must be so, anyway. Women should be careful when searching for husbands, and men too, should. Men especially, should be wary of avoiding those women with the nagging urge to abandon the marriage and later, openly demonstrate against them.! We have all failed, I believe! :o

Isn't it funny that most likely a lot of those women dying to demonstrate were the architects of their own failed marriages? What with our women's nagging quests for "bokaye" don a mallaki miji, tsiwa, rashin godiya ga abinda miji ke yi da ire-irensu. Any wonder then there are many divorcees? I guess then all those men whose wives caused the brake-up of their marriages should also go on demonstration? Yes, justice should not be gender-biased!

I quite agreed with you BKGZ, and wduz (also to some extent). I knw of my elder Brother whose life i will always pray to emulate. this man has a wife, The wife is so good and caring and infact she so loving and obedient to him and his parents. she is equally good to us his juniors and indeed all his friends. I cannot tell you that i have ever seen a husband that is too confident in the integrity of his wife than this man. She once told me no wife has a better husband than her, and he co-incidently told me no husband has a better wife than him. This woman is so good that our relatives prefer to go to her than to him (for any assistance) she compel the husband to take care of his relative and never allow her relatives takes his for granted. This man had been nurturing the idea for polygamy, but he is afraid let noe he marry a joy-killer that will distrupt the happy home they sustained since 11 years ago. To crown it all, when he informed his mum that he wanna be polygamous, she said, "I dont think you will ever get a wife like Lami (not her real name)".

The Husband, in appreciation of her kindness, he threw a 10th year anniversarry party of their marriage in 2007 to honour her, where he publically declare her "the pride of my Home". And He said  to the hearing of over 500 attendees " The prophet (SAW) has said that one of the best gift of ALLAH to his servant after faith is a Virtuos wife (mar'atun salihah), whoever wants see a person who was gifted in virtuos wife here i am, and the prophet said wife's paradise is under the feet of her husband, i am now declaring before you that i have lifted my two legs for lami, i forgive her for any error that she might have committed  against me or she will commit in future, and i want you and the angels of ALLAH to bear witness to what i said"

You see, this is unprecedented in our society. And it shows ther are good wives as well as appreciative Husbands. I challenge all wives and Husbands to emulate this family, Ni dai na bi kuma zanyi koyi.

This is interesting as I believe it takes a great man who is cultured in giving to be able to give this much to his wife as it takes a greater woman to earn this much from a man. The beautiful thing is as he finished saying he has forgiven her and the kind prayers he prayed for her, angels  will say the same things to him! Divine mercy never fails!

Again if Lawwali wouldn't mind, I will like him to get me connected with any of this woman's sisters please. I will definitely look the side of marriage with the kind of confidence her sister inspired. Who knows, perhaps I maybe lucky too.

But I will go, right away, and check my bank account  to be sure, in  case of incasity!

It would be nice Lawalli if u could get a separate husband/wife interview with them as to why they think each has the best husband/wife in the world. Let us know so that we may learn what it is practically that each does to the other that makes them such a contented couple. For my part, I'd really really like to know, not for anything except becos there is always room for improvement for the rest of us who are not so blessed like this.

Its not a question of personal experience. Its  question of how many of us as husbands and wives can claim that we have the perfect or best spouse in the world and have both echoing the same sentiment? A husband might claim to have the best wife in the world while he and his wife know that he isnt the best husband. Likewise a woman could claim to have the best husband while she fails to meet the same status. But to have BOTH claiming the other as perfect? Now that is a very uncommon occurrence. That is why I'd like to know the magic formula.

I think Sokoto government and probably other state governments have done what Kwankwaso did. I believe that is helpful and could reduce the level of divorce in our societies, for divorcing those married in this mass marriage program is not an easy task. It has to follow due process.

I don't have any data, but I am sure many are still together with their husbands. There are set down rules before the marriage is nullified. I think they are hard to violate for the penalty of so doing.

I'm also curious. I hope they're keeping track and documenting, if for nothing, then for the sake of anthropology.

I'm actually not a fan of the 'marrying off divorcees' trend that the northern state governors seem to be so keen on for several reasons.

For starters, it sends the wrong signal to young women.

I understand where the states are coming from, however by assuming that a woman has to be 100%

dependent on a man to have a 'good' life, we are promoting a population of young women that will

become intellectually lazy because hey 'I just have to find a man to marry me and I'll be comfortable.'

This is harmful for literacy among women because instead of these girls to go school or develop a skill,

they'd rather focus on finding a ready made husband that can afford them the kind of luxury they dream

of. They'd jump from man to man looking for wealth, hereby undermining education and the very institute

of marriage.


Marrying off divorcees is just putting a bandage on a deep, deep infected wound. You're only making

poverty worse by teaching women to be codependent. If you empower these women and teach them to

fend for themselves (I mean REAL empowerment through job opportunities and skills acquisition and not

 buying them keken dinky and injin Niqa!), then you have alleviated poverty for a whole generation.

As the saying goes; give the man a fish and you feed him for a day. But teach the man to fish and you

 feed him for a lifetime.


My other issue is that these men are getting the wives for next to nothing!

One major reasons why divorce is so rampant is because getting married in the north is so easy! That's

what promotes the auri-saki mentality. Ask an Igbo man or an Okrika man what it takes to marry a woman

where they're from and you'll understand why people from these cultures cherish matrimony.

I'm not against a state run matchmaking service, in fact it has worked for many societies in the developed

world. I have a problem with it being used as a poverty alleviation program because I feel it undermines

marriage and there are better ways to empower women.
