Ask The Imam Question and Answer

623 What is definition of Khullah and what is the process of getting Khullah?
In Islam, a woman cannot seek divorce from the man; only the man can divorce the woman.

The method by which she can seek separation is known as Khulla. This cannot begin until the two parties have tried every possible means of negotiation. The Scholars have mentioned certain times when the woman can seek separation; for instance, when the husband is unfaithful, the wife and children are being oppressed and when the husband cannot provide for the wife and children at all and the husband refuses to divorce her.

If the marriage is beyond reasonable repair, and the wife seeks separation, then she is required to pay a fee to the husband. When she does this and the husband accepts, then a Talaq Ba’ina occurs, or an irrevocable divorce.
