ISLAMIC VIEW ON DIVORCE
....................................................

Allah says in the Quran:,
 

"And live with them (women) honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good."

An-Nisa (The Women) 4 : 19


Ibnu Umar r.a. reported the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. as saying,

 

"The lawful thing that is most detested by Allah is divorce."

(Narrated by Abu Daud and Hakim)


It is clear that Islam strongly discourages divorce. Divorce always has negative effects on the affected couples, on their children, on their families and on the community at large.
