The Story: How Nuhu Poloma Converted To Islam And Became Ali Nuhu’s Father

How Nuhu Poloma became Muslim and Got Married to Ali Nuhu’s Mother (Fatima).

It was in the early month of June, the death of Mr. Nuhu Polom who is a father to veteran Kannywood actor Ali Nuhu surfaced online where people spitted Negative comments over religious differences between Late Nuhu Poloma who is a Christian and also fathering actor Ali Nuhu.

Nuhu Poloma was born on 2 September 1949 in Waja, Balanga local government, Gombe State. Nuhu was a former party Chairman of Gombe under the platform of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2001.

The questions mostly asked, how Nuhu Poloma got married to Fatima, mother of Ali Nuhu, and give birth to their son despite religious differences? Did Islam accept such a union? Here clear the air.

Mr. Nuhu Polomo got married to Fatima Kardilam digema, Ali Nuhu’s Mother when he accepted Islam. When they got married, but Nuhu reverted to his Christian religion. Fatima discovered Mr. Poloma is no more performing Islamic activities and then she asks for a divorce.

She was divorced when actor Ali Nuhu was born. Ali Nuhu was then brought to Kano where he spent his childhood life. He did his primary and secondary school in Kano, Yakasai, the No Man’s Land. Ali Nuhu was raised by his single mother who was a primary school teacher before she died in 1999 which is the year Ali started acting.

This means that their marriage is not interfaith but became interfaith when she uncovered he rejoined his father’s religion. She made the decision because Quran have cleared the air about interfaith (Muslim woman–Christian Man) marriage and I quote;

“Nor marry your girls to unbelievers until they believe. A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever.” (Quran 2:221)

So the law stands that a Muslim woman can only be married believing Muslim. As you all know the husband is the head of the household and a Muslim woman does not follow the leadership of someone who does not share her faith and values.
