Abstract

Divorcing one’s wife is considered as one of the most hated but legal act by God, yet divorce do happen among married couples. Muslims attach tremendous significance to issues involving Talaq. Unfortunately, Pakistani law on Talaq is one of the most controversial and confusing and its interpretation by our superior judiciary has made it even more confusing. The current law is not only against the injunctions of Islam, it has also been misinterpreted by the judiciary.

Keywords: talaq, Muslim Family Law Ordinance, Pakistan, section 7 of MFLO
