Death is a Kind of Compulsory Eviction

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | TOI | p. 20, Oct 13, 2017

Of all the stages through which a person will have to pass, death is the most certain. Everyone who is alive now will be dead sometime in the future. One day the eyes of those who see will fade and their tongues freeze into silence. Every human being will one day be leaving this world, never to return, and entering a world which he will never leave.

Instant Triple Talaq Is Un-Islamic

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Epilogue | Aug 22, 2017

As an Islamic scholar, I would say that the Supreme Court’s judgment delivered on August 22 – striking down instant triple talaq as being unconstitutional – is totally right. Triple talaq is not a principle of Islam, but is rather a ruling of certain Muslim jurists, adopted in the later period of Islam. In this matter, Muslim jurists need to correct themselves instead of wrongly justifying triple talaq.
