A Nigerian businesswoman identified as Hadiza Garba has advised married men to take a second wife instead of committing adultery.
She gave the advice through Facebook, while explaining that it is better for a man to marry a second wife than for him to commit “Zina”.
Zina is an Arabic (Muslim) word which refers to fornication and adultery, where a man engages in intimacy with a woman that is not his wife.
The woman said; “Marrying a second wife is better than commiting “Zina” Fear Allah more than you fear your wife.”
A scholar, Ahmad Umar agreed with her fully and expatiated on the scenarios where one can be said to have committed Zina.
He wrote; “Zina defined. Whoever, being a man or a human fully responsible, has sexual intercourse through the genitvl of a person over whom he has no sxxual right and in circumstances in which no doubt exist as to the illegality of the act is guilty of the offence of zina.”
