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.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1727) was born into a Christian family. A regular church-goer, he can be said to have been a religious man in every sense of the word. But he is known to the world as a scientist, not as a man of religion. He spent his whole life setting down the results of his research into the solar system, and it is in this capacity that the world has come to know him.
