Egyptian wife could be first 'SMS divorcee'

Asks court to rule on husband's text messages

Egyptian wife could be first 'SMS divorcee'

An Egyptian woman is seeking clarification from a court on whether her husband's declaration of divorce by text message is legally valid, a state-run newspaper reported on Thursday.

After missing a call from her husband on her mobile phone, Iqbal Abul Nasr received a text message from him saying, "I divorce you because you didn't answer your husband," Al-Akhbar said.

In line with Sharia (Islamic law) men do not need to go to court to file for divorce. A unilateral declaration of divorce by a man, repeated three times, formally ends a marriage.


It was the third time Abul Nasr, an engineer from Cairo, received a divorce SMS from her husband, prompting her to seek a legal decision from a family court on the status of her marriage.

If the court declares the couple divorced, it would be the first reported case of divorce by SMS in Egypt.

The subject of divorce by SMS has been highly debated across the Muslim world and some Islamic countries like Malaysia have banned the practice.

According to Egypt's state-run statistics bureau, a couple files for divorce every six minutes in Egypt.

What does she want from him?

If she does not like the SMS divorce, then she will take him to court and then what? He will divorce her face to face. Sure it sucks getting divorced, but, he has the right to divorce her without stating a reason. He did it on SMS, he can do it face to face, it is all the same, she will not get anything out of him that he does not want to give to her.

I put the article up, because I find this way of dealing with it amazing. Man sends the same message three times, and he gets the decired divorce, but the woman has to go through some substantial legal work to accomplish the same thing. By the way where is this authorized, quran or hadith?

The divorce rule where the man gets to say it once or Three times and the woman having to seek legal councel is in the koran.

Also in the koran that she can give up her dowry (to gain her freedom) but there is no garantee the judge will accept it.

Also the man has 40 days to take her back, whether she wants to or not.

Also he can immediately remarry and she has to wait 3 month.

Koran been busy.
