When the husband exercises his right to pronounce divorce, technically this is known as talaq. The best Muslim Law Advocates in India can be consulted to understand the concept of divorce in Islam.

The most remarkable feature of Muslim law of talaq is that all the schools of the Sunnis and the Shias recognize it differing only in some details. Muslim law as it developed in South Asia differs considerably from the strict Islamic law of the Shariat.

J.D.M. Derrett prefers to refer to it as Muhammadan or Muslim law rather than Islamic law, noting that ʹThe term Islamic law is not incorrect but could give the false impression that anywhere in South Asia the true Shariat, (shariʹa) orfiqh, the jurisprudence of Islam, was in force. Under Muslim law, a gift may be made orally or in writing, irrespective of the fact whether the property is movable or immovable.

[ Ibrahim vs. Noor Ahmed, Guj. ] The only formality that is essential for the validity of a Muslim gift is “taking a possession of the subject-matter of gift by the done either actually or constructively”. Gender equality is a modern ideal, which has only recently, with the expansion of human rights and feminist discourses, become inherent to generally accepted conceptions of justice.

In Islam, as in other religious traditions, the idea of equality between men and women was neither central to notions of justice nor part of the juristic landscape, and Muslim jurists did not begin to address it.

Ajmal, who leads the All India United Democratic Front, claims in the letter that the book has severely affected the emotions and hurt religious sentiments of Muslims.

“The author of the book has very nastily misinterpreted the verses of The Quran. The book made fun of the ‘Sunnah’ of our beloved prophet using highly objectionable language.Book Description. Within the global phenomenon of the (re)emergence of religion into issues of public debate, one of the most salient issues confronting contemporary Muslim societies is how to relate the legal and political heritage that developed in pre-modern Islamic polities to the political order of the modern states in which Muslims now live.Yet it retained religion, through personal law, as a defining status in an individual’s relationship to the state.¹ This seeming contradiction has to be understood in the context of India’s partition along religious lines and the anxiety of the post-colonial state to retain Muslim loyalty to its .
