  • Suhail, most of the clergy and non-clergy today are showing hypocrisy on many issues. you may not be either of them..........

  • The clergy over the years prepared a parallel theology based on deductions and assumptions of scholars. They igmired clear injunctions of Quran and Hadith. Nikah Hala is one of the innovations based on the misinterpretatios of some verses and promoted by corrupt maulvis. Quran does not prescribe hala.

  • Arshad, you have handled this complex subject very well. Congrats. The objection made by the AIMPLB is wrong. The first thing they should ask isDoes Polygamy or Nikha Halala enhance the quality of life or does it denigrate life? Does it build up or does it tear down? If the AIMPLB thinks the culture of polygamy or Nikha Halala enhance life, then their worldview too is pretty wrong. You are correct in saying the Board is caricaturing Muslims as backward and regressive people”.

    Many Muslims, particularly women in the West are doing well. Simply because they are freer; no polygamy, no names calling, less extended families, more intimate supervision of a few children.  When the head of a family looks for a second or third wife, the family becomes a disaster. You cannot make a sober judgement on any issue while embracing many women or wives. History is replete with the fallen kingdoms, because the kings took bold decision for war at the harem embracing women with boiling hormones, just to show how powerful they are.  Similarly today many young people, after watching porn material in their smart phones, with boiling hormones and the secretions half way down the tract, look at women just as a cat looking at a fried fish. Women are to be pitied.  Gone are the days when a single touch of a woman’s hand can be a heaven. AIMPLB should know that basically man is a polygamist and woman is a monogamist. Woman does not rape a man. In the Christian West casual sex is rampant – as well as divorces. No woman wants her husband or partner to utter the same words – darling, honey, sweetie etc. into the ears of another woman. Halala marriage is the worst. I have already commented on this subject sometime back. It is not a simple kiss on her cheek, but the mixing of eight secretions. Halala husband can linger in her mind until her death and wreck the family.

    Though Christians are the worst sex offenders, some have changed in their later life. Many Christian saints were initially sinners, including Leo Tolstoy.  President Bill Clinton had sex affairs with the woman Monica Lewinsky, but later appeared, sweating, in the TV, and said “I am a sinner”. That confession in public made him free, just as South African Cricketer Hansie Cronje publicly confessed that greed was the cause for the match fixing. They have many to look for moral guidance. Jesus was a virgin, his mother Mary was a virgin, great prophet John the Baptist was a virgin, and boldly went to the King Herod and said at his face “You cannot keep your brother’s wife. That woman demanded his head. He was beheaded and his head was given to her on a plate.(Mathew 14:1-12)  In Quran Surah 12 we find Prophet Joseph was chased by his mistress to sleep with him but he refused and consequently he was in Prison on false accusation. Only a God of moral perfection is God.

    If AIMPLB do not have the courage to confront these historical forces and the religious and social traditions which create and sustain them, they will be able to do very little to help their society to extricate itself from its present predicament. 

    Jesus said “Not everyone seeing sees; not everyone hearing hears”. (Mathew 13:13)

  • Nikah is not only a social practice but it is a religious too.Divorce system in Islam is defined it is obvious that some practice may be look absurd to you and all but you think if a man is divorcing a woman again and again then some way out would be needed or not.

  • Yalk that was Your Paigmebr did so he might have some mental problem. Not me, Also Muslims have same problem on the name of sunnah you Muslims do all bad things which does not suites to human beings
    Also when I said allow everything to muslims according to Sunnah than it is correct because Hindus should not be responsible to make you Muslims correct rather they should only concern about effect by Muslims on Hindu.

  • The whole of sharia needs to be scrapped.

  •  Arab culture and Arab social customs are not Allah made. It is Arab-  man made. Where over- population is a serious problem, How can we permit polygamy ? So poly gamy must be banned. A manseeking second marriage must obtain permission of District Collector.
    NIKKA HALAl is a Arab  absurd, Non-sense, diabolical inhuman and irrational. Must be banned by Legislation and by resolution of all Jamat.

  • Indian Goverment should allow polygami, Halala, Marriage to Son Wife if Son divorces and Marriage to 6 year old girl to all Muslims, BJP Goverment should read Quran and Hadees, after all it all coming from Lohe Mehfuz.

  • Pre-planning business of Halala is strictly forbidden in Haram in all schools of Islamic Jurisprudence.

    Polygamy is allowed with the condititon of justice but not compulsory. That Something is Jaaiz does not mean Waajib, as Jaaiz and Waajib both are two different things. In Jaaiz matters, you have an option either to do or not to do but in compulsory acts you are duty bound to do otherwise you will be a sinner. So in the case of polygamy, we see that the Quran allows polygamy with the condition of justice but does not make it compulsory.

  • The regressive policies of AIMPLB are truly atrocious. Its membership needs to be drastically altered. Organizations such as the Bhartiya Muslim Mahila Andolan must be represented on the Board and a fair balance of traditionalist, liberal and progressive members must be achieved.
