India’s ‘instant divorce’ ban: the end result or the first step in reforming Islamic law? ⠀
Triple-talaq is a form of Islamic divorce which allows a husband to dissolve his marriage instantly and unilaterally, simply through pronouncing “talaq” (divorce) three times to his wife.⠀
While it has long existed in customary practice, it carries little formal sanction within Islamic law itself. ⠀
It receives no endorsement in the Qur’an, which stresses unambiguously that all divorces should work through a staggered process which allows space for reconciliation. ⠀
Authoritative works of jurisprudence uniformly declare instant-talaq to be “sinful”, if not always technically “forbidden”.⠀
It's on these grounds that, a large majority of Muslim countries have banned instant-talaq, including Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.⠀
Nevertheless, instant-talaq had remained legal in India. ⠀
Delivered either in person, or increasingly via text message, email or WhatsApp, it led to countless women suffering the fates of instant abandonment, homelessness or destitution.⠀
But now, the Indian Supreme Court has announced a ban on the contentious practice, calling it “un-Islamic, arbitrary, unconstitutional.” ⠀

NEW POST ALERT On Monday, it was Woman on Top's THIRD birthday. I know - crazy, right? Three years have gone both painfully slow and worryingly fast. In celebration and thanks, I have written a Birthday blog to mark the occasion. If you've ever wondered where WoT came from or how it's changed over time, use the link in the bio now. Happy Birthday, blog. 🍾 #WomanOnTop#ThreeYearsOld
Yes, this is the real threat, not radical Islamic terror
I do not think cheating is funny AT ALL in anyway but the nonchalance and boldness had me close to tears.
Still wouldn't wipe my ass with this shit lol
Woah!! It's almost as if women are multi-dimensional creatures capable of doing a vast array of things that destroy the narrow stratosphere of what men have believed us to be in their simple minds. Sheesh. That was close.
A late post for all my sleepless night thinkers, I'll be out of town this Saturday (9/23), remember to book ahead! ONLINE BOOKING IS AVAILABLE. -
