Triple Talaq: How It Affects Lives of India's 90 Million Muslim Women

Imagine living with the mental insecurity that years of your marital alliance can be ended just by the utterance of three words. That's exactly what Indian Muslim women feel. India is home to world's third-largest Muslim population which is governed by the Sharia or Islamic jurisprudence and this has been the case since British colonial rule. But till today, India's 90 million Muslim women face the threat of a sudden, oral, and out-of-court divorce.....

Triple Talaq: Muslim Personal Law Board’s Stand Is Un-Islamic
Syed Ubaidur Rahman

At another place, Quran talks about the divorce being twice and then the couple should decide if they have to live together. If they decide to separate, it orders them to separate amicably and not allow the husband to usurp the lawful rights a woman has in such circumstances.  At another place, Quran asks the family to arbiter if the differences between husband and wife have become irreconcilable.  Quran nowhere allows the mindless act of Triple Talaq in a single sitting. ...

 

It’s Time for Obituary of Instant Triple Talaq
Moin Qazi

In Islam, marriage is a solemn contract (Meesaaqan Ghaleeza) and both parties have equal rights to revoke this covenant in accordance with Quranic procedure if the other party breaches it. Talaq is expected to be exercised only under extenuating circumstances. It allows for an exit when the marriage breaks down but only under certain conditions. The Talaq-e-Ehsan or Talaq-e-Sunnah, the only form approved by the Prophet, is has an elaborate procedure that spreads over three months and it is only after the completion of the third month that marital relationship ceases....

In Islam, Every Day Belongs To the Women
Murtadha Gusau

Our daughters have a right to education. They also have a right to legitimate work, to own businesses and to develop their God-given talents so that all humankind benefits. They have a right to be loved and respected no less than our sons. We seem to forget that the Mother of the Believers, Khadijah, the Prophet’s first wife was also the first Muslim. She comforted him in his moments of distress. She reassured him in his moments of self-doubt. “Cover me, cover me!” he pleaded, shaking with fear and terrified after his first encounter with Jibril....

 

As for her fears that she might be taken as a concubine by the vengeful Aurangzeb, Nadira Banu Begum was not far from the truth, as the Emperor summoned both the surviving slave girls of Dara and made the Georgian slave girl Udaipuri Mahal his concubine. However, the Hindu slave girl, Ra’na-dil – who was previously a dancing girl – refused to appear before Aurangzeb and instead cut her hair and slashed her face to save her honour....

I'm British Muslim, and I like Wearing the Hijab
Shaista Aziz

If there is one positive outcome of Brexit - and there are not many given the rise in bigotry I've seen and the increase in reported hate crimes - it's that we don't have to follow the ban. When questioned about whether Britain will adopt a similar rule, Prime Minister Theresa May reiterated her support for the right of women to dress how they chose. In trying to figure out how Britain is different from Europe, I concede that Europe has gone down the rabbit hole, pushing identity politics onto Muslim women by obsessing over our wardrobes.....

 

It is unfortunate that in modern India, triple Talaq continues. Here, it is permitted under the Muslim Personal Law (Sharia) Application Act, 1937, wherein, in matters of personal disputes, the state cannot intervene and a religious authority will instead pass judgements. But, is this practice part of the basic tenets of Islam? Many Muslim-majority countries including neighbouring Pakistan and Bangladesh, have outlawed the system. Turkey and Cyprus have adopted secular family laws; Tunisia, Algeria and the Malaysian State of Sarawak do not recognise a divorce pronounced outside a court of law. And in Iran, triple Talaq doesn’t have validity under the Shia law....

To Hijab or De-jab?
Shazmeen Khalid

Among the hullabaloo of Muslims being united under an umbrella and coming together to erase misunderstanding, there is also a posse of self-proclaimed, Islam-preserving, quick-to-pull-out-the-Hadith-and-use-it-in-a-nonsensical-way Muslims. Unless you have been living under a rock, you might be staring at that statement wide-eyed and wondering what could possibly stir up such bitter hate in the Muslim community. Successful Hijabi women, that’s what…..
