No doubt to say that the wedding cake was amazing to see and the work was to be appreciated, but when this matter and the picture of the cake was discussed on social media people shared a different opinion and every one has something different to say.
Some appreciated it while some said it was a waste of money and May Allah guide the Muslims to stay away from the World desires.
One of the users said people in the war-stricken area are dying of hunger and unavailable medical facilities and we are presenting million dollars cake just to satisfy ourselves.
Some said all the ingredients in the cake like flour, eggs, chocolate, baking powder, etc doesn't cost million dollars. This is false to say it a million Dollar cake. Only the Jewels cost million dollars.
Many reacted saying instead of spending money on these useless things it will make you feel much better if the needy are helped by your money. While one of the Users went too aggressive and said these things are destining Arabs to doom.
