Nigerian documentary photographer, Fati Abubakar has complained about the way people constantly remind her that she is unmarried at 30.
Taking to her Facebook page, the internationally acclaimed photographer from Borno state, said at least five people in a month remind her that she is over 30 and still single.
She said some even say she will never be respected in the society or be happy because she is unmarried.
According to her, it’s unislamic for people to think everyone will get married or have children in their lifetime.
The photographer wrote on Wednesday, November 2, 2022,
“At least five times a month someone must remind me I am over 30 and unmarried hence I will never have ”respect” or ”happiness”. I am not sure what they want me to do? Make a billboard? Highly unIslamic of Muslims to assume everyone that comes to the world will be married or have children. Our destiny is in His hands. Sigh.”
