Islam is what the Holy Qur’an itself says, not the rulings of mediaeval jurists
Many Muslims outside the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement think that a husband can divorce his wife by pronouncing the word ‘divorce’ (Arabic talaq) three times in succession, i.e., “Divorce! Divorce! Divorce!”, even if the wife does not know that the husband has done so. This organization, the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement, has been fighting this unjust and inhumane practice for one hundred years.
In The Religion of Islam, his short encyclopaedia of Islamic belief and practice, Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ali clearly showed that such ‘divorces’ were un-Islamic.
Islam is what is written in the Holy Quran and explained in the authentic Traditions of the Holy Prophet (s). It is not the rulings of the jurists of days gone by.
Islam regards a marriage as a contract between two people, laying down each individual’s rights and duties. This is common ground between Muslims of all sects. One party to a contract cannot unilaterally alter a contract, especially where the rights of others are involved. We applaud the decision of the Indian Supreme Court to declare this practice is not only unconstitutional but also un-Islamic.
The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement is proven right again!
The Ahmadiyya Association for the Propagation of Islam (Ahmadiyya
Anjuman Ishaat Islam) was established in 1914 at Lahore
to promote the informed understanding of Islam in the West. In the UK it
operated the Shah Jehan Mosque in Woking until the early 1960s. Its new
headquarters is at Dar-us-Salaam, 15 Stanley Avenue, Wembley, HA0
4JQ. In 1924, it built the first mosque on the Continent at Berlin. This mosque
is now recognised by the German government as part of the German national
heritage. From its European and other centres around the world this
organisation has taught that Islam promotes peace, harmony and mutual respect
between all communities and nationalities.
