‘Triple Talaq’ Instant Divorce Outlawed by Indian Supreme Court

Islam is what the Holy Qur’an itself says, not the rulings of mediaeval jurists

Many Muslims outside the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement think that a husband can divorce his wife by pronouncing the word ‘divorce’ (Arabic talaq) three times in succession, i.e., “Divorce! Divorce! Divorce!”, even if the wife does not know that the husband has done so. This organization, the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement, has been fighting this unjust and inhumane practice for one hundred years.

In The Religion of Islam, his short encyclopaedia of Islamic belief and practice, Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ali clearly showed that such ‘divorces’ were un-Islamic.

Islam is what is written in the Holy Quran and explained in the authentic Traditions of the Holy Prophet (s). It is not the rulings of the jurists of days gone by.

Islam regards a marriage as a contract between two people, laying down each individual’s rights and duties. This is common ground between Muslims of all sects. One party to a contract cannot unilaterally alter a contract, especially where the rights of others are involved. We applaud the decision of the Indian Supreme Court to declare this practice is not only unconstitutional but also un-Islamic.

The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement is proven right again!

The Ahmadiyya Association for the Propagation of Islam (Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat Islam) was established in 1914 at Lahore to promote the informed understanding of Islam in the West. In the UK it operated the Shah Jehan Mosque in Woking until the early 1960s. Its new headquarters is at Dar-us-Salaam, 15 Stanley Avenue, Wembley, HA0 4JQ. In 1924, it built the first mosque on the Continent at Berlin. This mosque is now recognised by the German government as part of the German national heritage. From its European and other centres around the world this organisation has taught that Islam promotes peace, harmony and mutual respect between all communities and nationalities.
