Divorce & `Iddah

Last Modified:  24 Aug 2011 06:59  GMT

I am newly married and I have suspected my husband of visiting pornographic websites and masturbating for a while now. Today, sadly, my suspicions have been confirmed. What is Islam's ruling on this? I am very upset about this and do not know how to deal with this issue. I am seriously considering divorce.

Is it permissible for a person who has two wives to divorce one of his wives so that his close friend who is unmarried and whom he truly loves for the sake of Allah, can marry her? This is what one of the Companions did. The person who wishes to follow in this Companion's footsteps wants to do this purely for the sake of Allah and for no other reason. He wants to follow the guidance of the Prophet (peace be upon him) that "None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he lo ...

I married my cousin who is a divorcee and older than me by four years. I married her for her good religious character. She has nothing of worldly possessions that anyone could covet. My father and mother are very angry with me and refuse to allow me to see them or to even enter their home. They say that they will never condone what I have done, on account of my marrying a woman who is older than me and a divorcee. Am I sinful and am I a disobedient son by refusing to divorce her?

I am a man who has been diagnosed with fertility problems after seven years of marriage without a child. Now, her family has found out about the problem and they are demanding that we get divorced. Do they have the right to force us to get divorced, even against their daughter’s will? What do you advise me to do?

I live in America, and I am married with children. Almost 15 months ago, my wife left the house taking the children with her. She went to live with her brother. Then my wife sent a complain to one imâm in New York and asked him for a khul`. This imâm is only an imâm of a mosque and not someone duly appointed to handle marital affairs. However, he gave her a paper and said that she is free to marry another man. He never sent me a copy of the paper or anything. Last week, I found out that she g ...

My wife asked me to swear that if I do a certain thing, we will be unlawful for each other. I refused. She insisted many times. Lastly, to console her and with a firm conviction in my heart not to divorce her, I said: "If I do this, we will be separated" and I stepped back a little. Later on, unfortunately, I did that thing. I consulted a legal scholar in my locality who said that since I did not used the word "divorce" and my intention was not to divorce, then it was not a d ...

I heard that if a man divorces his wife before consummating the marriage with her but after enjoying privacy with her, then it is as if he has consummated the marriage with her and all the rulings of divorce after consummation apply. Is this true? What is the proof for it? Doesn't it contradict verse 49 of Sûrah al-Ahzâb?

Some ten years ago, I said to my wife in an anger “O my mother, please stop nagging me.” At that time, I did not know the consequence of declaring one’s wife one’s mother. Now, we are happily married and living together. Only recently I have come to know that this is prohibited in Islam. Can you please advice me as to what I should do now?

I sometimes utter the words of divorce to myself due to my suffering from constant thoughts and misgivings about divorce. Can you please clarify for me if uttering a divorce statement in such a manner is different than a deliberate pronouncement? And if so, how is it different? I was under the impression that with respect to a clear statement like "I divorce you", scholars say that an intention is NOT required. I am confused. I know for sure it is not my intention to say such silly sta ...
