.::Divorce according to Shia Laws (Fiqqah i Jafaria)

Divorce‑­-Pronouncement according to Shia law‑‑Two Adil males to hear said pronouncement‑‑Trial Court on basis of evidence led by parties reaching conclusion that pronouncement of divorce made by husband on wife did not conform to requirements of Shia law inasmuch as it was not heard by two Adil males and, therefore, lady could not be said to have ceased to be his wife‑‑Finding of fact recorded by Trial Court and endorsed by appellate Court not shown to have been arrived at as a result of misreading of evidence or based on no evidence‑‑Interference declined by High Court in constitutional jurisdiction.

‑‑‑‑Divorce‑‑‑Fiqqah‑i‑Jafaria‑‑‑ Proce­dure ‑‑‑Requirement of valid Talaq under Shia Law is that it should be pronounced in Arabic words in presence of two adult male witnesses and the wife‑‑‑When presence/attendance of wife cannot be procured, then husband can pronounce Talaq (divorce) in specific Arabic words which is known as “Khutba Talaq “, but in presence of two male witnesses‑‑‑Such Talaq (divorce) can be reduced into writing and forwarded to wife or the same may be intimated to her otherwise.

    • As per my understanding, pronouncement of divorce in Arabic words necessary in the presence of two male witnesses


    • in law of land there is a specified procedure for effectiveness of divorce, you seems asking question with religious point of view. you better ask from any religious scholar.
