Zihar Divorce

Unread postby Admin » Wed Jan 07, 2015 11:56 am

Zihar is a form of inchoate divorce. If the husband compares his wife to his mother or any other females within prohibited degrees the wife has a right to refuse herself to him until he has performed penance. In default of expiration by penance the wife has the right to apply for a judicial divorce. The law of Zihar has now received statutory recognition in section 2 of the Sharaiat Act 1937.
