"We need to ask Allah for protection so that our families are well and happy," he explained.

"One of the causes [of divorce] is not praying together," the mufti said

Zulkifli pointed out that Islamic verses relating to divorce, such as surah Al-Baqarah, are long and include messages about "carrying out prayers five times a day and to do it properly."
