Divorce in Islamic law between the spouse and wife can be removed from the accompanying verse:
“..but, in accordance with justice, the rights of the wives (with regard to their husbands) are equal to the (husbands;) rights with regard to them, although men have precedence over them (in this respect). And God is almighty wise.”(2:228)
It is clear that the Qur’an states there is a “degree” of contrast with respect to the privileges of men and women related to Divorce in Islamic law, yet it is not clear “how much” and “what” benefits a man is qualified for.
There has been much twisting and engendering of mistrust around the Divorce in Islamic law. It is just with self-instruction and familiarity with the Qur’anic verses that both men and women can come to know the reality of what God has endorsed and to assess the insightful understandings nearly to guarantee that the soul of equity is done:
“When you divorce women and they fulfill the term of their (Iddat), either take them back on equitable terms or set them free on equitable terms; but do not take them back to injure them, (or) to take undue advantage; if anyone does that, he wrongs his own soul. Do not treat God’s Signs as a jest, but solemnly rehearse God’s favors on you, and the fact that He sent down to you the Book and Wisdom, for your instruction. And fear God, and know that God is well-acquainted with all things.” (2:231)
Divorce in Islamic law in Quranic Surah:
“O you who believe! When you marry believing women, and then divorce them before you have sexual intercourse with them, no iddah (divorce prescribed period) have you to count in respect of them. So give them a present, and set them free (i.e. divorce), in a handsome manner.” (Al-Ahzab-49)
According to Divorce in Islamic law:
- The husband can give three divorces to his wife.
- After one or two divorces, he has the right to take back his divorce within the iddah period and after the iddah period, he can re-marry with her.
- If three divorces have been given, the husband has no right to take back his divorce.
- After three divorces, the husband can not re-marry with her divorce until she marries with another person and gets divorced from that person. This is called halalah in Islamic shariyat.
- Iddah of a divorce woman is three menstrual periods. Only after this period, she can marry to any one else.
- No iddah period is required if woman is divorced before sexual intercourse.
- Iddah of a widow woman is four lunar months and ten days.
- Iddah of a pregnant widow or divorce woman is the period till she delivered the child.
Divorce in Islamic law started by the wife is known as khula”. if the spouse is not at shortcoming and involves the wife giving her Dowry (Haq Mehr) to end the marriage in light of the fact that she is the “agreement” breaker.But In the case of Divorce where the spouse is the “agreement” breaker, he must pay over the required funds in situations where all or a piece of it was conceded.
