AIMPLB, Triple Talaq and Blasphemy
T.O. Shanavas, New Age Islam

On the contrary, the "fraudulent Shariah," that the members of the Board strive to preserve, demands capital punishment for blasphemy. Based on the Qur'anic verses quoted above, Triple Talaq violates the Word of God, the Qur'an, and thereby the Muslim Board is committing blasphemy. So, I ask the members of AIMPLB, "Do you ever consider asking the Supreme Court to punish you for blasphemy under the rules of your cherished counterfeit Shariah?...

Banning Triple Talaq Will 'Not Benefit' Muslim Women: Umari

Nikah is essentially a contract laid down in a ‘Nikahnama’ drawn between the husband and the wife. This contract can have conditions and has a compulsory ‘consideration’ (Meher) to be paid at the time of the marriage. This consideration is paid by the man to the wife, and can be at time waived off by the woman as per her own will. So the basic difference between a Hindu Marriage and a Muslim Marriage is that for Hindus, marriage is a divine sacrament whereas for Muslims, it is a contract drawn between the husband and the wife....

 

The court was addressing the point that a vacuum may arise if triple Talaq is declared invalid, leaving Muslim men no forum to go to for a divorce. Presently, Muslim men do not have to move courts to get a divorce. They can instantly get divorce unlike a Muslim woman who has to approach a court under Section 2 of The Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act of 1939. The 1939 statute gives specific grounds under which a woman can seek divorce....

Nikahnamas That Bar Triple Talaq Could Work Much Better Than Making the Practice Illegal
Faizan Mustafa

She got the contract enforced in spite of her husband’s assertion that the contract reduced him to the status of a slave despite the abolition of slavery, and so it was void. Let the prohibition on polygamy and triple divorce be included in the Nikahnama and once triple divorce goes, Halala too will automatically go as in revocable divorces, parties can remarry without Halala....

Often the woman is not even present when her husband utters the words; emails, texts and Facebook are, increasingly, the preferred mediums. The practice is banned in many Muslim countries but continues in India, home to the world’s second-largest Muslim population.....

 

The Prophet acknowledged this honour when he declared that Paradise is under the feet of the mother. She is entitled to three-fourths of the son’s love and kindness with one-fourth left for his father. As a wife she is entitled to demand of her prospective husband a suitable dowry that will be her own. She is entitled to complete provision and total maintenance by the husband. She does not have to work or share with her husband the family expenses.....

 

Triple Talaq and the Constitution
Gautam Bhatia

In response to the AIMPLB’s claim that the state has no right to interfere in the personal, religious domain, they respond that the religious domain, properly understood, does not, and has never, allowed for triple Talaq. They draw a distinction between instantaneous Talaq, or Talaq-I-Bidat (where divorce is complete when “Talaq” is uttered three times in succession) with Talaq Ahsan, which requires a 90-day period of abstinence after the pronouncement, and Talaq Hasan, which requires a one-month-long abstinence gap between utterances. The latter two are part of Islamic personal law, but the first one is not.....

Rape and Ordinary Men in Pakistan
Rafia Zakaria

India may have imposed the worst punishment possible on five of the rapists, but Pakistan will continue to ensure that its rapists go free.

In the Qur’anic perspective there can never be a restriction of this knowledge to one sex. It is the duty of every Muslim man and every Muslim woman to pursue knowledge throughout life, even if it should lead the seeker to “China,” we are told. The Prophet even commanded that the slave girls be educated, and he asked Shifa’ bint ‘Abdillah to educate his own wife – Hafsah bint ‘Umar....

This was not the first time a stranger had felt entitled to raise the potential religious interference of my genitals with me. It’s uncanny how often people try to demonstrate their concern about the alleged oppression of Muslim women by humiliating them. Even finding out the details of my research findings doesn’t seem to deter them from baldly sharing opinions.....

 

Talaq Not Easy As Muslim Men in Kerala Find Ways to Beat Law

 “I hereby declare that I have pronounced, ‘Talaq... Talaq... Talaq’ to my wife, Shameem Begum (27),” signed off 33-year old Javed S in an agreement dated April 4, 2017. It was a day of emancipation for Shameem, a seamstress. (Both names changed.) “For four years, I have been trying and I had to literally fall at his feet to get the Talaq,” said Shameem. Javed agreed to it after she had signed another agreement foregoing all her rights to maintenance and giving up the Rs 1.5 Lakh she paid as the ‘Maher’ or dowry to him. “I just wanted to get out of the pit....

Of Halala Marriages and the Sexual Exploitation of Muslim Women
Purniya Awan

A very small portion of Muslims around the world believe in the concept of Halala marriage. However, by monopolising this practice in a simplistic manner, these services are taking away and misrepresenting the concept of Halala marriages which are stated in the Holy Quran. By doing so, what these services are doing is normalising adultery, infidelity and prostitution in the name of Halala....

Why are Islamists in Pakistan Afraid of Its Women?
Anita M Weiss

Al-Huda’s emphasis on observing Purdah reinforces the notion that women’s uncontrolled sexuality will lead men astray and disrupt the social order. These teachings, therefore, not only put the responsibility of any sexual crime against women on men – as we see in the rest of the world – but they also become an excuse for the control of women’s mobility and sexuality.
