The show of love among Islamic scholars was exhibited between the renowned Zimbabwe Islamic scholar, Ismail ibn Musa Menk, also known as Mufti Menk and another scholar, a Texas, US-based Dr. Muhammad Salah.
Dr. Salah, who is currently in Nigeria to spread the message of hope at the 1Ummah Eeman Booster event had earlier posted a picture of himself in the traditional Nigerian Muslim/Northern cap with the caption:
“Almost becoming Nigerian!!!” on his social media page.
The post has attracted thousands of likes and comments online including what looks like pun by Mufti Ismail Menk, who is equally in Nigeria for the same event held on Saturday, April 24, at A-Class Event Centre, Abuja
Mufti Menk as he is popularly known, jokingly replied Dr. Salah’s post of almost becoming Nigerian, saying:
“You can never be fully Nigerian without 3 more wives”, with the emoji 😜.
This subtle shade from Mufti Menk has seen over 12,000 reactions and comments as monitored by Muslim News, with many following the joke with hilarious comments.
A commenter even attempted a shade at Mufti Menk asking how many wives does he also have.
