However, under Sharia law, if a man says, “I divorce thee” to his wife three times, it indicates a final separation. A man can also divorce his wife over the phone or in letter, after which they will have to approach the court to finalize the proceedings.

A woman may also be granted a divorce if she proves that her husband has been physically or mentally abusive, if he has abandoned her for a period of three months and/or he refuses to take care of her and their children.

She can also obtain a khula – a separation from her husband from the court, but will have to return the dowry to her husband and may even have to pay compensation depending on the court’s ruling.

    Hello. This can be kind of an “unconventional” question , but have some other visitors asked you how have the menu bar to look such as you’ve gotten it? I also have a blog and am really planning to modify around the theme, however I’m frightened to death to wreck havoc on it for concern of the search engines punishing me. I’m extremely a new comer to all of this …so i am simply not optimistic just how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here
