Following Eddy Kenzo's viral video through which he announced that him and Rema Namakula are legally and Islamically married, now Islamic leaders have come out and advised her to return Kenzo's Mahr or Mahare are they are locally known.
Speaking on a local TV Station, An Islamic Leader Sheikh Batte stated that if it is true that Rema and Kenzo were still legally married, then she must return all the dowry Kenzo gave her before she goes ahead to marry Dr Hamza.
In Islam, the Mahr is a mandatory payment in the form of money or possessions paid by the groom, to the bride at the time of marriage. While the mahr is often money, it can also be anything agreed upon by the bride such as jewelry, home goods, furniture, a dwelling or some land. Mahr is typically specified in the marriage contract signed during an Islamic marriage.
The actual Muslim wedding is known as a nikah and it is a simple ceremony at which the bride does not have to be present so long as she sends two witnesses to the drawn-up agreement. Normally, the ceremony consists of reading from the Qur'an, and the exchange of vows in front of witnesses for both partners. No special religious official is necessary, but often the Imam is present and performs the ceremony. He may give a short sermon.
