The Kano Hisbah board says Malama Khadija, the woman who divorced her husband to marry her daughter’s suitor did not violate Islamic law on marriage.


Khadija has been in the news since she tied the knot with her daughter’s boyfriend.

The state Hisbah board had earlier disclosed that it was investigating the matter.

NAN reports that the board revealed its findings in a statement by Lawan Ibrahim, its spokesperson, on Tuesday.


Hisbah said contrary to claims, Khadija met the required conditions in Islam to marry her daughter’s suitor.

Presenting the report, Hussain Ahmed, chairman of the committee who doubles as deputy commander in charge of operations of the board, said his team found “the marriage was legal and had fulfilled all the necessary criteria”.

Ahmed said Khadija was divorced by her husband and had observed the three months waiting period (iddah) prescribed by Islam before marrying the suitor rejected by her daughter.


He also dismissed allegations that she was seeing her present husband while married and instigated her partner to divorce her so she could marry her daughter’s suitor.

“The marriage is legal according to Islam, that was the reason Hisbah commander in Rano local government area supported and took part in the wedding rites,” he said.

On his part, Harun Ibn-Sina, Hisbah commander, commended the committee for discharging its responsibilities.

Ibn-Sina said the committee members were carefully selected due to their vast knowledge of Islamic teachings and societal orientation.


He called on the public to desist from spreading fake news and avoid misconceptions on issues regarding Islam.
