Nikah Halala: Sleeping with a Stranger by Ziya Us Salam

Nikah Halala: Sleeping with a Stranger by Ziya Us Salam is the first-ever book to talk about the subject. Nikah Halala presents the sordid reality of mock marriages against the background of Quranic injunction on the subject and exposes the departure in practice from the teachings of the holy book that gives divorced women complete freedom to follow their path. The book has been published by Bloomsbury and is now available online as well as in bookstores.

Muslim society in India remains in a state of denial when it comes to nikah halala. The Quran allows divorce twice. After that, the spouses either live together happily or divorce gracefully. Nowhere does it allow marriage with a pre-arranged date of divorce to a new man only to go back to the former husband.

Nikah Halala: Sleeping with a Stranger is a probing exercise that exposes the cycle of instant triple talaq followed by a fake marriage, which too ends with another instant triple talaq that allows the woman to marry the former husband. While the holy book does not mention instant triple talaq, this tradition is unique to the Indian subcontinent that claims to bring squabbling couples together but ends up making a mockery of the faith and punishes women for the crimes of men. .
