Divorce without any reason

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Divorce without any reason

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


Divorce is not considered a desirable act in Islam and is only permitted as a last resort.  That is why the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said ‘From the permissible acts Allah dislikes divorce the most’.   (Sunan Ibn Majah p.162 v.1)

Therefore the conclusion we can derive is that it is impermissible to give divorce without any reason.  However if someone did give it, the divorce will occur.  (Raddul Muhtar p.428 v.4)
