A Muslim woman from the Bareilly district in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh was forced to sleep with her father-in-law for nikah halala, after her husband gave her instant triple talaq (“I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you” said thrice, and the wife is out in the cold). The Bareilly woman, as if not humiliated enough by the divorce, then had to go perform nikah halala with her father-in-law, so as to be allowed to return as a wife to her husband.
Nikah halala is an Islamic law that “requires a woman to marry and sleep with another man in order to return to her first husband.” Islam allows a Muslim man to “remarry the same woman twice.” If he divorces her a third time, “he can only remarry the same woman if she first marries another man, consummates the marriage, and only if the man dies or willingly asks for divorce, can the woman go back to her first husband and remarry him.”
Note in the article below how sickeningly abusive the husband and his family were to this lady. The husband’s family even forcibly sedated her to complete the nikah halala ritual with her father-in-law.
Nikah halala is yet another example of the inferior status of women in Islam. Others include the triple talaq itself, polygamy, inheritance matters (a woman’s inheritance is half that of a male), and the devaluing of women’s testimony (two women = one male, so her testimony is worth half that of a man), female genital mutilation (stipulated in Islamic law, Umdat al-Salik e4.3, and by Muhammad himself, Sahih Bukhari 7:72:777), wife-beating (Quran 4:34), and full covering — otherwise she may be abused (Quran 24:31, 33:59).
Many Islamic scholars are making money off one-night stands with divorced Muslim women in the practice of nikah halala.
The silence of Western feminists and media is deafening.
