Over 300 Muslim scholars have unanimously empowered Muslim women to annul marriage, in case of a serious breach of agreement or if a wife is unwilling to live with her husband.

The ruling was adopted last week, at an international Islamic jurisprudence seminar organised by Islamic Fiqh Academy (India) from at Mhow in Madhya Pradesh.

Delving upon the Islamic concept of Shiqaaq or disagreement leading to unwillingness to live as husband and wife, the scholars ruled that mediation and reconciliation should be resorted to before dissolution of marriage on this ground.

The ruling said, “It is the duty of the relatives and guardians of the couple to attempt reconciliation and try to keep the couple within the limits set by Allah.”

The ruling says, “ If Shiqaaq (bitterness or acrimony) shiqaaq arises between a couple and wife is completely unwilling to live with her husband, then utmost effort should be made by the judge to reconcile. In case of non-reconciliation, the marriage should be dissolved.”
