Did you know that:
"Shariah Law allows for the Talaq rights to be reverted to the wife!"
At the time of the nikah the wife can stipulate in the marriage certificate that she has the right to give her husband talaq and not vice versa!
A common problem facing Muslim women when they separate from their husbands is
that they usually don't have the rights of divorce under Shariah Law.
This means that only the husband has the right to divorce the wife. If the wife wants a divorce, she must apply for a khulla. This is usually done through the Shariah Council who then contact the husband several times and then issue the divorce.
Unfortunately, there have been many cases where the Shariah Council have attempted to reconcile the parties even though the wife does not wish for this.
There are also instances where the Shariah council have insisted that the wife must attend mediation and a face to face meeting with the husband. The Shariah Council usually consists of an all-male panel and this can be very intimating and unsettling for the wife.
A report commissioned by the BBC highlighted the problems faced by Muslim women in this process.
