An Islamic cleric has taken to social media to show how his ‘eleha’ wife eats in public without removing her face covering.
The man had taken to TikTok to share a video of himself and his niqabi wife going out together to have fun when an inquisitive follower asked how he expects his wife to eat while wearing her veil.
In response to the follower’s curiosity, the man, who went on a double date with his friend and his wife, shared a video of his wife feeding herself by passing her spoon of food under her facial covering.
“Proudly Oko Eleha (husband of a niqabi),” he wrote in the caption.
The video has sparked mixed reactions on social media, with some people praising the cleric for having a modest and pious wife, while others condemned the Islamic practice as being oppressive and restrictive.

I’m a Muslim and a true believer of Islam
Tho my level of faith hasn’t gotten here but I respect every Niqabi and hijabite I come across because it’s not easy to make that decision
Islam is peace
My hijab is my pride
