All praise is due only for Allaah. We laud Him and beseech His aid and beg forgiveness from Him only and believe in Him and rely solely on Him. We seek salvation in Him from the evils of our inner selves and the vices of our actions. There is none to misguide one whom Allaah intends to guide and there is none to guide whom Allaah intends to mislead.
I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allaah, the One who has no partner. I also testify that Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallahu Alahyi Wassalam) is the faithful servant and the Last Rasul of Allaah. May Allaah Ta’ala’s mercy be on him, his family and his Sahabaah (Radia Allahu Anhum Ajmaeen) and may He bless them and raise their status. Hadhrat Mufti Sayed Abdul Jalil’s book on Talaaq (Divorce) has been published numerous times in the Indo – Pak sub continent due to its academic nature and clarity.
He ably discusses the philosophy of talaaq and its concept in other religions and countries. Then mentions the different types of talaaq and goes into each ones details. Thereafter the talaaq laws are elucidated which occur under different and variant situations, circumstances and conditions. Followed by the rules of reconciliation via revoking, fresh marriage, Khula, ‘Halaalah’. Then the regulations of Iddaat are adequately propounded upon and the circumstances causing and legalising annulment listed. Subsequently, the wisdom of maintenance system after talaaq in Islaam explained.
This book will benefit the scholar and men of the law will appreciate the finer intricacies of the laws of talaaq, proving that the Deen is complete. Whilst the layman will understand the rules of talaaq from the angle of simplicity and clarity. A simple advice to those who are to use the institution of talaaq is that they issue only one talaaq when their wives are in the state of purity prior to which no sexual relationship has taken place. This they will do the same work and give the same result of 3 talaaqs, however, leaving the door open for reconciliation.
