| Nigeria: Muslim woman asks Sharia court for permission to divorce her husband, court orders her to pay him
| Friday, April 12, 2019
Jihad Watch : Meanwhile, if Muslim men wish to divorce their wives, all they need do
is tell her “You are divorced” three times, and the deed is done. The
inequality here is obvious, albeit nonetheless always denied by Islamic
apologists. “Woman drags husband to Sharia court over inability to have children,” by Khaleel Muhammad, Daily Post, April 10, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
|A Woman is always a loser, the laws are stacked against her.|
A 29-year-old woman, Fatima has requested a Dutse Sharia
court to dissolve her five-year-old marriage over her husband’s alleged
inability to satisfy her sexually. She explained that for the duration of their marriage, she never experienced even miscarriage, not to talk of having a baby. She said they always fight because her husband refused to seek medication for his problem, and she needs a child.
The woman then requested the court to dissolve their marriage for her to remarry and have an issue. Responding to the allegation before the Sharia court, the husband,
Malam Sa’idu Maiinji stated that his wife made up the claim just to
malign him for her selfish interest. He said he was examined at Sakwaya Hospital and was certified normal, and can have a child….
He demanded the court to order her to pay him the N200,000 he spent
to married her as well as the N20,000 he paid her as her dowry. In a ruling, the Sharia court judge, Ibrahim Yusuf Harbo ordered
Malama Fatima to pay her husband the sum of 20,000 she received as
Speaking to DAILY POST afterwards, Malam Sa’idu said he is not
satisfied with the judgment, stressing that he was going to make an
appeal over the case. The Islamic law provided that when a woman requests divorce from her
husband, such woman must give back to her husband the dowry that was
paid to her upon marriage.
In the event that the husband refuses to accept this payment, a court
of Islamic law has the power to dissolve the marriage regardless of
whether the husband opposes it.
