Can a man divorce a woman who only bears him daughters and no son?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is a man who have sons more superior in Allah’s eyes than a man whom Allah gave daughters? wasallam.


The criteria of superiority in the sight of Allah is Taqwa (piety). Allah Ta
‘ala says, ‘Verily, the most honoured among you is the most pious.’

Having male children is certainly not a criterion of superiority in the
sight of Allah.
