Islamic Relief Agency has emphasized the need for Muslims to abide by Islamic principles on nikkah.

Speaking in an interview with Radio Islam, its spokesperson Sheikh Cassim Idrissa said many Muslims are not aware of the importance of conducting nikka in Islam.

“It is for this reason that his organisation thought it wise to help needy Muslim families which have been cohabiting without making nikkah,” said sheikh Idrissa

He said his organisation has so far reached out to 56 masjids in the southern region and plans to reach out to other regions.
