A divorced Saudi woman seeking to return to her husband picked her mobile phone and dialed a number. When a man answered, she decided he was the right person.
Islamic scholars had told the woman and her ex-husband that she must marry another man before she is permitted to return to him.
The woman’s snare did work. Four months after he knew her, that man agreed to marry her after he was flooded with love words.
On the next day of their marriage, Mohammed Ibrahim woke up in the morning apparently expecting to hear more love words. But his guess was totally wrong.
“Instead, she asked me to divorce her after I paid her SR75,000 dowry for the marriage,” he told the Saudi MBC television.
“I then discovered that she used me as a bridge to return to her first husband….she then went to court and divorced me…when I asked her to give me my money back, she swore before a sheikh (Islamic scholar) that I did not pay her any dowry.”
