-Islam: Divorce by Text Message?

by Dr. D ~ January 18th, 2008

There is a case before Egyptian courts to determine if a man may divorce his wife using a text message via his cell phone:

“I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you”

This is normally all it takes to get the job done according to Islamic law. However, usually it is declared in person and some countries require witnesses. Apparently, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar have already approved text message divorce.

Response: Divorce is already far too simple for men in Islamic countries. But divorce by ‘text message’ borders on the ridiculous. I originally thought that this had to be some kind of joke. However, after checking it out it is on the up and up. Unbelievable!
