This law allows an individual to have one night stand with a divorced Muslim woman. This is done just to save their marriage. Shocking, but it is true.
What is Nikah Halala?
Nikah Halala is a law that requires a woman to marry and sleep with another man in order to return to her first husband. There have been instances where the husband regrets divorcing his wife through triple talaq and in the hope of reconciliation, hands over his divorced wife to another man for marriage, under the condition that the latter would divorce the woman the next day.
In a sting operation, it was revealed that Muslim religious scholars charge anywhere between Rs 20,000 and Rs 1.5 lakh to take part in the primitive practice of Nikah Halala.
This taboo tradition has been never come to limelight. All these days we focused on triple talaq but this “nikah halala” is something far more serious than triple talaq.
How can a woman be forced to have sex with an unknown Muslim scholar just for the sake that her first husband wants her back?
When “India Today” probed into this, it found many Islamic scholars putting themselves up on sale for women desperate to restore their broken marriages.
The clerics who were ready to sleep were already married!!!
In the sting. a Imam is caught saying that he is already married but is ready to be a part of Nikah Halala. When questioned further, whether his wife knows about this, he says that he haven’t revealed this to his wife and that is not required too.
Another Imam admitted he had officiated several nikah halala marriages before. This time, he proposed a package deal for the entire service, including sex. And the cost of this package was Rs 1 lakh.
Look at the statement given by Zubair Qasmi, a qualified maulana married with two wives. This will put Indians into shame. He says that “I spend many nights out. It’s much easier to manage this with two (wives). One would think I am with the second. And the second would think I am with the other. It’s not at all difficult with two (wives)”.
Finally, Nikah Halala criticised by everyone!!!
Yes, after the sting operation, Maulana Maqsood-ul-Hasan Qasmi said that this is nothing else than lust. He further demanded to throw these Imam’s out of the mosque.
When there was an unfair tradition in Hinduism, all got united and abolished it. The best example is “Sati”. But sadly if someone opposes Nikah Halala, he will be condemned. Now it is time that all the Muslims need to unite and abolish this age old unfair practice.
