The Supreme Court agreed to take up Muslim women’s petitions challenging the validity of talaq-e-hasan under the Muslim personal law.
What is Talaq-e-Hasan?

  • In Islam, Talaq-e-Hasan is an extra-judicial form of divorce that can be practised by men.
  • Under Muslim personal laws, this form of divorce is revocable.
  • Talaq-e-Hasan is considered to be approved by Prophet Mohammad and is valid as per all schools of Muslim law.
  • To practice ‘Talaq-e-Hasan, a man needs to pronounce talaq on his wife three turns at intervals of one month.
  • The period of the gap between the three consecutive talaqs is called the period of abstinence or ‘iddat’ and its duration is 90 days.
  • The divorce is assumed to be revoked if the couple begins to cohabit or be intimate during the period of abstinence.

How is it different from triple talaq?

  • Triple talaq or Talaq-e-Biddat was banned by the government in 2019.
  • In this, a man can divorce his wife by pronouncing “talaq” thrice in one go.
  • The divorce is instant and irrevocable.
  • This is different from ‘Talaq-e-Hasan as it does not have any waiting period and irrevocably terminates the marriage.
