Have Zari Hassan and hubby Shakib kissed and made up

Socialite Zari Hassan and her husband, Shakib Lutaya, have reconciled and embarked on a spiritual journey.

The couple shared photos of themselves joyfully strolling together in a location believed to be Saudi Arabia.

Zari also took to her Snapchat account, documenting their journey, showcasing their Emirates Business class flight to Dubai, and captioning it “Umrah2024.”

Umrah is a sacred pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims, aimed at cleansing the soul of past sins.

It is a journey seen as protection from poverty and life’s burdens, as pilgrims devote their wealth and time in the way of Allah.

Zari further expressed her independence on her TikTok account, sharing a playful message about her ability to sponsor herself and her trip to Dubai to meet her husband.

In the videos posted on her Snapchat, Shakib is seen affectionately embracing Zari.

This follows a brief period of separation.

On February, 26 Zari revealed that she has parted ways with her Ugandan husband, Shakib Lutaya.

In an interview with Millard Ayo, Zari disclosed that the decision to separate was mutual, emphasising the need for both parties to have space.

Contrary to widespread speculation linking the split to her recent video appearance with Diamond Platnumz, where the two were seen holding hands, Zari clarified that issues between her and Shakib predated the controversial video.

“Shakib and I have had issues before. That is why in November and December, I decided to delete his photos on my Instagram page. We had big issues, and it is not because I did the video that Shakib has left South Africa,” Zari candidly revealed.

A video circulating online over the weekend showed Shakib packing Zari’s belongings, sparking rumors that he felt disrespected by the interaction between Zari and Diamond.

Addressing this, Zari acknowledged Shakib’s feelings, expressing regret for not discussing the video with him beforehand.

“I don’t blame him for feeling how he feels. Had I told him before Diamond released the video, he would be okay. Now that he has left, I have decided to give myself some space from the whole situation,” Zari explained.

Regarding her recent promotional video with Diamond, Zari admitted her mistake in not informing Shakib beforehand, acknowledging his feelings of disrespect.

She disclosed that she had apologized to Shakib, recognizing her error and seeking forgiveness.

“My mistake was that I did not tell Shakib that I had done a promotional video with Diamond. That is where I am wrong. He was also caught by surprise and he said he felt disrespected when I am around the father of my children. I have asked for forgiveness.”
