Geelani Asks Scholars To Study Talaaq Verdict


SRINAGAR – Calling upon Muslim scholars and clerics to thoroughly study the recent court verdict on the pronouncement of Talaaq, Huriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Saturday urged them to deliberate over its import and fallout.

“The courts are under the influence of non-religious administration. In no way it is acceptable to Ummah (sic). These verdicts are no more authentic as they serve inauspicious type of administration, there is every apprehension it can create misunderstanding and misconceptions as the law of established principles and commandments of Islamic Sharia is concerned,” Hurriyat (G) spokesperson quoted Geelani as saying, according to a statement issued here.

“We find that in Islamic Sharia law of heredity and divorce has been explained in clear detail but it needs a great vision and a special talent with power of judgment to arrive at an acceptable conclusion,” he said, quoting Geelani.

Syed Geelani added that a person with ordinary and little knowledge of Islamic jurisprudence and Sunnah may forward and submit their opinion but it is very hard to reach a decision by them.

“Geelani said in absence of Islamic administration, it is very complicated process to understand it in full, until and unless there is an established government administering the law pertaining to day to day needs of a man, and the whole life as per code of conduct provided by Islam,” the spokesman said.

“Supporting his viewpoint, Geelani said even an Islamic scholar cannot justify with ease his verdicts in absence of Islamic Sharia and Islamic administrative set up. He urged Islamic scholars to come forward with their viewpoint, so that doubt and misgivings, if any, are rectified without any damage or without giving rise to more confusion,” the spokesperson said.
