Falsity About Halala
The misperception that is prevalent in our society is attempting to make sense of Halala as a way of life that a woman, after having been divorced by irrevocable Talaq, gets married to another man, ties the knot after which she is divorced to be able to marry her former husband.
Many websites charge “divorced” Muslim women thousands of dollars to participate with “halala” Islamic marriages, an BBC investigation has discovered. Women pay for marriage to, have a sexual relationship with and then divorce a stranger to be able to get back with their former husbands.
Farah (not her real name – got to know the man she married through a friend of the family at the age of her 20s. They had children shortly following, but after that, Farah says, the abuse started.
“He dragged me by my hair through two rooms and tried to throw me out of the house. There would be times where he would just go crazy.”
Despite the violence, Farah hoped things would change. The behavior of her husband, however, changed, and eventually led the husband to “divorcing” her via text message.
“I was at home with the children and he was at work. During a heated discussion he sent me a text saying, ‘talaq, talaq, talaq’.”
“Triple talaq” – where an individual will say “talaq”, or divorce at least three times during the same row is a tradition that certain Muslims believe will end the Islamic marriage in a matter of minutes.
It is illegal in a majority of Muslim countries, but it is still a common practice however it is not possible to determine exactly the number of women who are “divorced” like this in the UK.
“I had my phone on me,” Farah describes, “and I just passed the phone to my father. He said”Your marriage is over and you’re no longer able to return with the man you married.'”
Farah claims she felt “absolutely distraught”, but she was determined to see her former husband because she considered him “the love of my life”.
Her ex-husband, she claims, also regretted divorce from her.
This caused Farah to look into the controversial practice of Halala, which is embraced by a tiny fraction of Muslims who adhere to the notion of the triple talaq.
They believe that halala is the only method by which a couple that has divorced and want to reconcile, can get married.
Halala is when a woman marries another person, completing the marriage, and later getting divorced – at which point she can marry her previous husband.
However, in certain instances women who use the services of halala are at the risk of being financially abused or blackmailed, and possibly sexually assaulted.
It’s a method that the majority of Muslims oppose and is often attributed to people misinterpreting the Islamic rules regarding divorce.
However, an investigation conducted carried out by BBC has discovered a variety of websites that offer Halala services, some of which charge ladies thousands of pounds to participate in weddings for temporary purposes.

Truth About Halala
- In traditional Islamic laws, a man may divorce by simply saying the wife that he is not going to divorce the marriage (Talaq).
- The first statement of Talaq is an irrevocable rejection (talaq raj’ah) that doesn’t end the marriage.

- The divorce is final when the waiting period is over. It is known as an “minor” divorce (al-baynuna al-sughra) and the couple is able to be remarried.
- If a husband refuses to marry her for the 3rd time this triggers an “major” divorce (al-baynuna al-kubra) and the couple are not allowed to remarry absent the marriage being consummated with the husband to a different man. This is called Tahlil (or Nikah Halala. Making the third statement irrevocable is a way to deter reckless repudiations.
If a husband , after the divorce was rescinded twice in a marriage contractand divorces his wife for 3rd time], he is not able to marry her until she’s married an additional man.
However, if the second husbandalso divorces her, there will be considered a sin for one of them to go back to one another, in the event that they believe they are now within the boundaries that are set by Allah. These are the limits set by Allah. He makes them clear to those who seek to learn more. (2-230)
