Festival Of Peace

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Speaking Tree | Jun 25, 2017

Eid is celebrated on the first date of Shawwal, that is, the tenth month of the Hijra calendar. During the festival, Muslims exchange gifts, greeting their neighbours as a mark of solidarity and brotherhood.

'Instant Triple Talaq Is Un-Islamic'

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Speaking Tree | Jun 25, 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.
