Why does islamic countries i.e Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Tunisia, Turkey, Syria, Bangladesh, Indonesia ,etc are in the ruling of 3 talaq in one sitting considered as 1. Are the mufti's and ulama from those countries taking the blame for this innovation? For those people given the verdict i.e 3talaq = 1 from their respective islamic courts, will Allah punish them? Whom to be blamed?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The official position of the Darul Iftaa is that three divorces issued in one sitting constitute three divorces and not one.

Our view is substantiated by proofs/evidences from Qur’aan and Hadeeth.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
