Divorce is not a good thing, but this does not mean that the right to divorce should be stripped off. It is important to know that like any religion, divorce in Islam is seen as the last option in spoiled marital relations.
But the process is very cruel for all women because they face ‘halala services’ that sexually exploit them. There are many questions like, can two people who divorce marry each other again? Or if the husband does not want to divorce the wife, can the divorce still happen?

What is Iddat
After the divorce, the girl comes back to her own home(mom’s home). The three months of Iddat means she won’t come in front of any person, so that if the girl is pregnant, then the matter will come in front of everyone. By this, no one could raise any finger on the ‘character’ of that woman and her child could not be called as illegal.
Behind it, there is a patriarchal mentality of the society which says regardless of any religion only girls in society are responsible for family’s honor.
What is Halala, A law that demands a woman to sleep with stranger to remarry her divorced husband.
Halala means ‘Nikah halala’. According to Sharia, if a man has divorced his woman, then he can not marry the same woman again till the woman marries another man and divorces him. But it is important to know that it is justified if a woman is intentionally planning to marry another man or or if there is a conspiracy then it is unfair and the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wahellam) has made such a conspiracy wrong.
What is Nikah Halala
The woman’s second marriage is called ‘Nikah Halala’. But under this practice many times women are forced to marry another man, so that their first husband could get married again with them. Many such cases have surfaced in the past few years. In such a case, if the man again wants to get married to his divorced wife, then he could not marry her until his wife formally marry another man and take divorce from him.
Taking advantage of the disputed process of Nikah Halala, many clerics spend one night with those women who want to save their weddings under Islamic law.
According to a report published in India Today, Many clerics charge anywhere between Rs 20,000 and Rs 1.5 lakh to participate in nikah halala.
Know What is ‘Hulla’
It is very rare that the first husband wants to marry his first wife again.
But often it is that due to the ease of the three divorces, often the unmarried man speaks Talaq three times. Later when they realize their mistake they want to link their relationship again to that woman. In such cases, it is necessary to reconnect with a relation before re-marrying.
But according to Islam deliberately or planning to marry another man and then divorcing it only for that so that it could be justified before the husband is unjustified. So, a person who is involved with the maulavi is will marry that woman who will instantly divorce the woman after marriage. This process is called hulla. It can be said that the whole process of halala is called ‘hulla’.
What is Khula
If only the wife wants divorce or if a divorce proceeding is initiated by the wife, it is known as a Khula. But if the husband denies it then women can to go to the Qazi (judge) and ask him to divorce him. Islam has given this right to Qazi that they can grant a divorce.
