There are several methods of divorce in Islam, such as divorcing the husband in different ways or the wife applying to the court to enforce the divorce if possible through the “open” law of Sharia. There is some disagreement among the scholars about the methods, but the subject of this article is the remarriage of the same husband and wife to each other after the final divorce. This is what happens in reality. In many cases, after the final divorce, the husband and wife think that the decision to divorce was wrong, it is better to continue the family. Moreover, if there are children, there is no alternative for them, both parents are needed for the children to grow up properly. For their remarriage, the world-Muslim past is now complying with the relevant Sharia law which is based on verses 229 and 230 of Surah Baqara. Here are the relevant sections:
“Divorce twice. Then leave it according to the rules or leave it nicely… if he divorces her, then the wife will not be halal for the man until he takes someone else as his husband. Then if he divorces her, there is no sin on the two of them reuniting. “That is, when the divorce is complete, they will not be able to remarry each other directly, the wife will have to marry elsewhere. This is what we know, this is what is common. But what exactly was the husband of the character in the event that verse 229 was revealed? Born in the year 1000 in Nishapur, Iran, the famous Imam Al Wahidi, his famous book “Asbab Al Nuzul” (“The best description of the revelation of verses”) is a uniquely reliable book of documents in Islam that contains the background of many verses of the Qur’an. In short, I am giving the background of Surah Baqara verse 229 from page 23 of the book. In Islam, the “waiting period” is the waiting period of the wife before marriage elsewhere, usually three months. (The narration of many of the narrators) says, ‘It was customary that after divorcing the wife, the husband could take her back before the end of the waiting period, even if he divorced her a thousand times (i.e. as many times as he wished – the author). A special Companion (there is no name of the Companion in the Book – the author) divorced his wife and took her back just before the end of the waiting period. Soon after, he divorced his wife again and said, “By Allah!” I will never take you back and I will never let you marry anyone else. ‘ Then Allah the Almighty revealed – ‘Divorce must be pronounced twice; He must then be treated with respect or kindly released ‘(must be retained in honor or released in kindness).
That is, the divorce-marriage cycle cannot be done more than twice. This command is extended in the next verse – if the wife marries someone else, then the former husband has no right to remarry her, even with the consent of the woman (verse 230).
In other words, the centuries-old practice of rats and cats playing by oppressive husbands over the dignity, rights and lives of their wives has been erased by the Qur’an. I can’t understand why those who call the Qur’an anti-woman do not mention these documents. On the other hand, the verse is a shield for women from an abusive husband but it has been applied in all areas of life, even in the case of a loving husband.
Verses 229 and 230 state that “until she takes someone else as her husband” – the woman had complete freedom to marry or not to marry someone else. But even decades ago, we saw its barbaric application. After divorce, Hilla was forced to marry another man in the name of marriage and sent to her bed. It is nothing but ‘rape’ in the name of Islam. Fortunately, many scholars have stood firm against this barbaric practice, which has led to its gradual eradication. What the previous generation used to think was Islamic, the present generation has understood that it is not actually Islamic. This is how society progresses.
I have read this in some isolated articles published here and there by several scholars and scholars from the past to the present. But there was no mass awareness in this regard, it was not established in the masses. That’s all I’m saying, I have no right to say more than that. Surah Baqara verse 232:
“When you divorce your wives, then their waiting period is over, and if they wish to enter into marriage with their husbands, do not hinder them when they both legally agree to compromise” – Taisirul Quran.
Yusuf Ali: When ye divorce women, AND THEY FULFILL the term of their (‘Iddat), do not prevent them from marrying their (former) husbands, if they mutually agree on equitable terms.
Sahih International: “And when you divorce women AND THEY HAVE FULFILLED their term, do not prevent them from remarrying their [former] husbands if they agree among themselves on an acceptable basis”.
Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran – “When you have divorced women AND THEY HAVE REACHED THE END of their waiting period, do not prevent them from re-marrying their ex-husbands if they come to an honorable agreement”.
Pickthall: “And when ye have divorced women AND THEY REACH their term, place not difficulties in the way of marrying their husbands if it is agreed between them in kindness”.
Shakir: “And when you have divorced women AND THEY HAVE ENDED their term (of waiting), then do not prevent them from marrying their husbands when they agree among themselves in a lawful manner”.
Mohsin Khan: “And when you have divorced women AND THEY HAVE FULFILLED THE TERM OF THEIR PRESCRIBED PERIOD,
do not prevent them from marrying their (former) husbands, if they mutually agree on reasonable grounds ”.
Arberry: “When you divorce women, AND THEY HAVE REACHED THEIR TERM, do not debar them from marrying their husbands, when they have agreed together honorably”.
What happened then?
In which event was Surah Baqara verse 232 revealed? I am summarizing from the book “Asbab Al Nuzul”, page 24: –
The Companion Makal bin Yasar married his sister to his cousin, who later divorced her. Then when they wanted to get married again, the angry Makal strongly opposed it. Then this verse was revealed, “When you divorce the wives and then they also fulfill the prescribed period, do not prevent them from marrying their ex-husbands on the basis of mutual consent.” After the revelation of the verse, Makal agreed and they got married again.
Both sides of the coin are shown. Now that’s Nick’s decision.
How would you feel if your parents broke up as a child? How did you grow up?
Last month, Abdullah and his wife got divorced according to the rules, now they want to remarry. They have a four-year-old son and a two-year-old daughter. Look into the eyes of those two innocent children. What do you think?
“Better a poor horse than no horse at all” – Sahih Ibn Majah, Volume 3, Hadith 1847. If Rahmatullah Al Amin has to be, then this is it, that is here. Misguided people can make mistakes but after repentance why the lives of husband and wife and children will be ruined?
“Allah wants what is easy for you and He does not want what is difficult for you. He has not imposed any hardship on you in matters of religion” – Surah Al-Baqara 165 and Hajj 6.
Greetings to all.
