There is God's (Quranic) Sharia which is just and equitable, and there is
man's sharia which is selfish and cruel.
In case of a divorce, the Quranic Sharia calls for separation for at least
three months, while making efforts to reconcile the differences, if
reconciliation is not possible then comes the divorce, where the man takes full
responsibility for child support and alimony if the woman has no other source of
income.God's law is common sense. (Genesis of Sharia Law)
However, what Muslims have been practicing is Man's (Male's) Sharia,
believing that it is the divine law, and it is not. It is misogynistic and does
not care about woman. The guy can say the word divorce three times, and the life
that was built over a life time can be done away in a minute. Women constantly
live in the fear of this ugly pronouncement and it is not acceptable. No human
should live in apprehension, particularly the married women in a society where
the are dependent.
This has got to go, unless we are just to fellow beings, our spiritual
growth is incomplete. Being just amounts to being Godly or being spiritual or
Thanks God for giving courage to Muslim women in India to take the bold
step of calling to get rid of this ungodly law.
