Method of marriage proposal in Islam
Mallam Dauda Ayuba is an Imam in one of the Mosque in Abuja and he said that the action of the young man is very wrong thereby violating the Islamic tradition.
"In Islam, if you see a lady and wish to marry her, all you have to do first of all is to send your elders to the family of the girl, and from there they will give you permission to speak". And if it happens that you both like each other, the same elders will still discuss to say that they have given her to you for marriage."
