An Islamic cleric, Sheikh Nurudeen Alfa-Nla, has advised couples to always keep to their marriage vows to check unwarranted marital difficulties.
Alfa-Nla, who is the Chief Imam of Opeleyeru Central Mosque, Ifaki-Ekiti, Ekiti, said many marriages had suffered separation and other challenges due to lack of commitment to marital responsibilities among couples.
According to her, both the wife and husband have separate responsibilities, adding that problems often start when one or both parties fail in such obligations.
Alfa-Nla said many parents had neglected their parental responsibilities and marriage demands as it related to equipping their children with good morals and discipline.
“Most marriages, from experience, are usually conceived through love, trust and affection between both parties followed by acceptance and blessing of their parents.
“But regrettably some of these marriages today hardly survive the first year due to the failure of either one or both parties involved.
“The end product of such development, especially when children are already involved, could have negative consequences for the society.
” That is why today we have children of broken homes roaming the streets endlessly, while some involve themselves in armed robbery, banditry, kidnappings, drug abuse and other illicit acts,” he said.
The Islamic cleric also advised couples to always allow themselves to be guided by the word of God and its commandments to achieve a lasting marital affairs.
“Whether Muslims or Christians, couples should allow themselves be guided by them holy scriptures – Quran and Bible – for an enduring marital life.
“Even when there are difficulties, they will know the right step to take in order to salvage their relationship for the better,” he said.
Alfa-Nla urged religious leaders to be alive to their responsibility of teaching and preaching the word of God in their sermons to achieve a decent and society devoid of rancour, hatred and acrimony.
