In what can aptly be described as the definition of true love, a Nigerian man decided to become a Muslim in order to marry his fiancée after being moved by his love for her.
To marry May Haidar according to Islamic customs, the man known as Ossai converted to Islam, according to the information shared on social media.
The remarkable love story was posted on the Arewa Fashion and Style Instagram page on Monday, November 21, 2022.
The union was first rejected by Haidar’s father, who is from Kaduna state, out of concern that Ossai might revert to his previous religion. She revealed this in the comment area of a post offering congratulations.
“I went to see my dad and told him about it, at first he was not happy cos he was skeptical about the conversion and scared if he would go back to his old religion.
My dad finally accepted and we did an introduction 4th June and wedding preparations started, we were supposed to get married in October but he lost his mum so we shifted the date and Alhamdulillah it came to pass,” May Haidar wrote.
Meanwhile, Ossai also shared photos from their wedding on November 17, 2022, and described May as the absolute love of his life.
He wrote; “Congratulations to my lovely wife and I. She’s the bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. The absolute Love of my life”.
