Childish Adults


“The most detested of permitted actions in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala is divorce”.

“Allah Ta‘ala has not created on the surface of the earth anything more hated by Him than divorce.” These are the blessed words of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Our beautiful deen of Islam guides us to maintain a relationship of love and affection. However, if a couple, despite all efforts, cannot reconcile and fear that by remaining together they will transgress the laws and limits of Allah Ta‘ala, in such a situation Allah Ta‘ala has allowed the option of a separation as a last resort.

Divorce can be likened to the amputation of the foot due to gangrene. This sometimes becomes necessary to save the rest of the body. Only in such a situation is the foot amputated.

Unfortunately nowadays, over little issues of pleasure and desire many opt for a separation. All it takes is one word or one action against our temperament and there we have it, the option of divorce is flashing through our minds. Divorce has become a toy in the hands of childish adults.

Let us become more responsible and preserve the sacredness of our marriages.
