Hajia Adiza Osman: The National Chief Imam’s wife tells her love story with her husband and how they met
In comparison to her husband, Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, the National Chief Imam of Ghana, she may be said to be a “drop in the ocean” type of person in terms of popularity.
The Chief Imam’s wife’s name and every known fact about her have been captured on film, according to the Oman Channel on Facebook.
Adiza Osman stated to Theophilus Annan through an interpreter that she and the Chief Imam didn’t really meet until their wedding ceremony.
Although she came from a considerably more prosperous household, she said, her arranged marriage was to the Chief Imam, who did not come from a very prosperous home financially.
She continued by saying that although she initially didn’t like him as a suitor, she had no control over whether she did.
“My grandmother and the Chief Imam were in the same group. My grandmother was taken into marriage through the hands of the National Chief Imam and so it was an arranged marriage. It was through this that I also came into the picture and got married to the Chief Imam.
“Take note that in the past, a daughter could not make her own choice of a suitor. There was the need for her the parents to do that and mostly, they would have made up their minds on which house their children will marry from.
“All I knew about him before we met was that he was a father and a Muslim scholar who taught in the big Islamic school that was demolished at Makola. I knew him as my father’s senior brother. I did not know I would marry him, but there was no room for me to accept or not because it was settled. It didn’t matter if I liked him or not.
“But in all honesty, I didn’t like him much initially because where he used to live wasn’t so nice: somewhere before they moved to Old Fadama. The area did not even have electricity, and it was a very muddy place. They actually used to use lanterns then, but I was coming from a rich background where I had everything, including electricity,” she said.
Beyond all of this, Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu, the man she was about to marry, was just as adored in his family as she was in his, according to Hajia.
She went on to say that despite their low social standing, his family was equally powerful and well-respected.
The Chief Imam was greatly adored by his family, despite the fact that I was also treasured and loved in my household. So, it was similar to a prince and a princess being married. Additionally, the Chief Imam’s family was well-known and powerful as well.
“In fact, the sister of Mallam Abbas, who was there before him, is the one who gave birth to the National Chief Imam so, even though his family was not wealthy, they were very influential and highly respected,” she explained.
