Talaaq Explained Part 1 What is Talaaq? Talaaq is the issuance of divorce, whether in word or in writing. What is the Islamic status of Talaaq? Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has described Talaaq as the most hated of permitted actions in the sight of Allah. (Abu Dawud) It is allowed only under specific circumstances. Who can issue Talaaq? The husband has the sole prerogative of issuing Talaaq. A woman who is living in an unbearable marriage may apply for annulment of her marriage from an Ulama body. Although Talaaq is the right of the husband, he will be answerable in the court of Allah should he abuse this right. Under what circumstances may Talaaq be issued? Talaaq is issued as a last resort, not as a first. Numerous verses in the Qur'an stress the need for mutual appreciation, overlooking faults and reconciliation in bitter situations. Talaaq should only be considered after all options are exhausted and advice from the Ulama is sought. (source: Jamiatul Ulama - KZN)
