Muhammad Dia explained the reasons for their customary marriage, saying: “When all the conditions of customary marriage are fulfilled, I think that it remains permissible, including publicity and guardianship. This happened with a contract and I used a valid signature in a court, but I did not want to announce the matter.”
He added: “I did this because the temporary marriage is called a temporary marriage. I did it as if it was an engagement, even if the touch of a hand remains permissible, temporarily until I enter the stage of official marriage.”
Muhammad Zia denied their customary marriage because of Menna Fadali’s mother’s refusal, saying: “Her mother was with us from the first day to the last, and I can give you the pictures.”
He also denied hitting Menna Fadali, and said: “I swear to God, I never hit her, not once. Because I swore once that I put her in a bunch, I wanted to count, and I told her to keep me away.”
And about the reason for their divorce, he said: “A picture I saw that I liked. I agree with it that there are limits that you wear a little naked dress, I hate naked clothes.”
He added that he saw the photo in a group of photos from a photoshoot for the song “Valentine” that he was preparing for Majd Al-Qassem, and Menna Fadali did not tell him about it.
