Domicile‑ Wife’s domicile is domicile of her husband–­Law of domicile of husband allowing oral divorce‑Such divorce if recognized as valid by Courts of country of domicile is binding on Courts of all countries‑ [Muhammadan Law‑Divorce].

The domicile of the husband is the domicile of the wife, and the law applicable to a divorce is the law of the domicile of the parties which means the domicile of the husband. If the law in force in Egypt allowed a Muslim husband to divorce his Christian wife by word of mouth and that divorce had been recognized as valid by a Court of law in Egypt, that decision would be a decision which would be binding not only between the parties but on all the world and recognizable by Courts of all countries.
