Madrassas to Include ‘Talaq’ as a Part of Its Curriculum

Bareilly, UP: After the recent Supreme Court ruling on the matter, a leading Dargah of the Sunni sect has decided to include ‘talaq’ as part of the curriculum of  madrassas.

“There are many safeguards as per the Shariat regarding talaq (divorce), but in a majority of cases they are overlooked and people remain unaware of them. Now the right manner of practising ‘talaq’ as per the sunnat will be taught to students of madrassas,” head of Darul Ifta Manzare Islam of Dargah Ala Hazrat, Mufti Sayed Kafil Hashmi said today.

He said that the syllabus of madrassas is linked to Dargah Ala Hazrat and is prepared in the light of the Quran and Hadis.

This order will be issued to all madrassas including the ones run by Dargah Ala Hazrat, Hashmi said.

“Due to new awareness, students will be able engage in the conversation and elucidate to those who are ill informed about the bad effect of instant divorce on children”, he said.

The Dargah has also issued a helpline number for such cases, the Mufti said.

The Supreme Court had last week set aside the practice of ‘triple talaq’ among Muslims, saying the practice was void, illegal and unconstitutional.

Hashmi said that the Dargah Ala Hazrat has also issued directives to the ulema all over the world to inform the people of the right way to practise talaq in their speeches at Urs and seminars.

“Women will be empowered through this decision”, he added.
