Facebook user, Bilyaminu Ladan Mada has said a married man who dates another lady is not cheating on his wife.
In a post made on his Facebook page, the man who is a Nigerian soldier opined that God forbids a woman from checking her husband’s phone while a man is at liberty to check his wife’s phone because “she belongs to him”
The post seems to be in connection with convicted murderer, Maryam Sanda who stabbed her husband to death. Unconfirmed reports say she saw some explict content on her deceased husband’s phone which prompted her action.
He wrote: “Good Afternoon ladies and gents. Sorry, I just want to drop this here. For the Muslims, God the Almighty permits a man to marry up to 4 wives if he so wish and can do justice. So dating a lady outside doesn’t mean/qualify that am cheating on my wife. For the fact that she is the only one at home shows that I can bring three more.
“Cheating is when u are having extra marital affair pls. Ladies that feel their husbands are cheating on them because they are dating another girl aside having them as wives, my question to u is “is ur husband having 4 of u?”
“Also note, it is forbidden for a wife to check her husband’s phone but very much allowed for a husband to search his wife’s phone. The reason is “he is at liberty to marry more than a wife, so is possible he has a girlfriend and if the wife see their chat or messages, she will be hurt.
“So to avoid violence, God forbids her from checking his phone. But for the husband, he can check her phone because she only belong to him and it is believe she does have any secret to hide from him in that phone that will hurt him. So pls lets understand.”
