      Women are allowed. Women can leave a man simply because he cannot sexually satisfy him. Thats how much power women have.

      Faceup, don't spew out comments like that; its simply not nice.

          Islam allows the dissolution of marriage at the request of the wife in two ways: a divorce ordered by the judge if she proves that she is being subjected to harm in her marriage and khula’, which does not require any proof.

          The latter does not need to have any particular reason to be freed of her marriage bond. Khula’ is a termination of the marriage contract at the woman’s request because she feels that her interests lie elsewhere. Since in Islamic marriage the husband bears more of the cost, the woman is required to refund to her husband all the dower he had paid her at the time of marriage.
          Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

              2: 225 Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths but for the intention in your hearts; and He is Oft-Forgiving Most Forbearing

              Ibrahim says; Greetings of Peace to one and all.

              The Poster "allupinmygrill" clearly seems to have one intention, that being he /she wants "all up in his/her grill" as the handle indicates

              so I am wondering why should I or anyone be in your grill?

              Because your intention to post here is to argue and "grill" or is there more to it?

                  Brother Ibrahim is very clear in his post. The intention of the questioner is best known to Allah.

                  If your name all up my grill indicates your intention, there is no sense in replying to it as there will be unneccessary arguments instead of a vluable discussion.

                  Furthermore, people liek Sarah and Faceup, who are only there to create fitna will jump in, as they have. Their comments will only earn them the ire of the Creator, unless they repent.

                      In Islam, upon marriage the husband is expected to pay a sum of money to his bride (agreed to beforehand). This is known as a dowry. If the bride wishes to annul her marriage for any reason, she can either get a court to grant her the divorce (i.e. if she has been ill-treated), in which case she may keep the dowry, or she can simply return the dowry and announce that she wishes her marriage terminated by khula. At this point she is freed from her marriage with no further obligations to her husband.

                          MadScientist, do u even know what ur talking about. First there is no concept of dowry in Islam .... DUH !!! .. its only mehar, which the husband gives to his wife, and it cannot be paid back whether the marriage is annuled or not.

                          As for the topic, yes a wife is absolutely allowed to terminate her marriage in Islam.

                            The word mehr in English is dowry. A woman can take divorce (known as khula). It is clear in ayah 2:229, relevant portion quoted below.
                            It is not lawful for you, (Men), to take back any of your gifts (from your wives), except when both parties fear that they would be unable to keep the limits ordained by Allah. If ye (judges) do indeed fear that they would be unable to keep the limits ordained by Allah, there is no blame on either of them if she give something for her freedom.

                              The KHULA Divorce works this way:
                              1)The wife approaches the husband to DIVORCE her in return for the Dowry that was given the wife.
                              2)It is upon the husband to grant the wife's wish of a Divorce. He may try to blackmail her by making monetary demands or other demands.

                              KHULA doesn't mean the Wife is divorcing the husband; she initiates the process and it is still the husband who gets the final say -Divorce.

                              Most of muslim women would DARE not ask for Khula Divorce because of the stigma attached.

                              The common form of divorce is still:
                              1) Verbal Divorce where the husband says TALAQ(divorce) three times;
                              or,
                              Says the word talaq on three separate occassions.

                              i)The husband's obligation (financial support) to the wife CEASES after the Idaat (waiting )period of three months.

                              ii)After the three months idaat - the husband may not have to support the wife in any way. He may EVICT her or push her out the door.

                              iii)The children become the custody of the father.

                              I shall write more about this matter later.
