We’ve often heard stories of ladies fighting over a man. Usually, the solution is either to share or the man has to choose between one of them. However, it seems TikTok user milkiyahamira disagreed with the usual endings and forged her own.
Milkiyahamira’s story caught attention on TikTok when she admitted an ustaz had fallen in love with her. Unfortunately, she discovered he was already married to another woman right before they were scheduled to be wed. Heartbroken, Milkiyahamira chose to cancel her wedding and block the man out of her life instead.
“A well-known ustaz from Batam once asked to marry me,” the TikToker shared. “He (was) very gentle and I liked him very much.” The two planned to get married and had already planned the wedding with much gusto. However, three months before her wedding day, Milkiyahamira discovered the horrible truth. The ustaz already had a wife.
He apparently mentioned off-handedly that he would talk to his wife about her. The statement alone was alarming to Milki. Although having multiple wives is permissible according to the doctrines of Islam, she wasn’t keen on destroying another woman’s happiness. “Three months before my wedding, I decided to cancel it,” she stated.
Milkiyahamira shared that he begged her to change her mind. He even went as far as to kiss her feet, however her mind was made up. “I couldn’t accept that I had been (almost) tricked into being his second wife,” she admitted. Milki added that she wasn’t a person who wanted to build a household by robbing other people’s husbands.
Her bold move won her praise from netizens. “You’re different for choosing to not harm another woman. Surely there will be someone better for you later,” one commented. “You’re beautiful and have a good personality. Your soulmate should also be someone good who doesn’t need to be fought for,” another read.
Unfortunately, after her story blew up, Milkiyahamira removed the video on TikTok. She apologised and stated she hadn’t expected her video to become so viral so quickly. Her only intention had been to share her story, she had not meant to call out the ustaz.
Milkiyahamira has emphasised that she will not be revealing any names. Her story was meant to be just that; a story. She only hoped it would be an inspiration to others.
We appreciate her honesty and her kindness towards fellow women. Too often we hear stories about women turning on each other, so to see her willing to sacrifice her happiness for another’s is truly touching.
