Civil Marriages still remain a topic of big argument and concern among the Muslim authorities in Lebanon

The top Muslim authorities in Lebanon are still on arguments on supporting civil marriages in the country. Grand Mufti Shaikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani issued a fatwa on all those who are planning to legalise civil marriages within the country. ‘Any Muslim with legal or executive authority in Lebanon who supports the legalisation of civil marriage is an apostate and outside the religion of Islam. They are predators lurking among us, trying to sow the bacteria of civil marriage in Lebanon.’ In fact Qabani also said such offenders would not be allowed to be buried in a Muslim cemetery. The issue of this fatwa came after President Michel Sulaiman tweeted that he would remain steadfast in supporting these civil marriage unions. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
