Triple Talaq Not Fundamental to Islam
A. Faizur Rahman

Given the reluctance of Muslim religious bodies in India to give up their sectarian conformism and delegitimise Talaq-e-Bid’a, the Supreme Court will be well within its rights under Articles 141 and 142 of our Constitution to resort to, in consultation with progressive Islamic scholars, a neoteric interpretation of the terms “Talaq” and “Shariat” mentioned in section (2) of The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937, and lay down the procedure of divorce in accordance with the egalitarian and gender-just principles of the Quran....

Triple Divorce Is Neither Fundamental To Islam, nor Is It Sacramental
Tahir Mahmood

Going by the true and authentic Islamic teachings, divorce itself is Abghaz-ul-Mubahat Indallah (most detestable in the sight of God) among legally permissible things. Who has then the cheek to claim that divorce — leave alone the so-called triple divorce — is “fundamental” to Islam? True that, unlike in classical Hindu and Christian laws, in Islamic legal philosophy marriage is not an absolutely indissoluble union and its termination is permissible in irreparably broken marriages...

There are several instances where a woman after the ‘instant-divorce’ is left with no help, rendered homeless overnight or traumatised for life. According to a survey conducted by the Bhartiya Muslim Mahila Andolan (BMMA) in 2015, out of the 525 Muslim divorces, 346 are oral, 40 through a letter, 18 on phone, one via SMS, three through e-mail and 117 through other sources. It clearly states that the practice should be abolished not just because it is unjust and inhuman but also because it is ‘un-Quranic’....

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?...

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.....

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....

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....
