If I give references from quraan and Hadith will you agree to my above points or your own opinion is enough for you ?No, I don't know what is halala. If you mean the Instant Triple Talaq then it is not Islamic. You should have read that Christian woman's article. The real talaq is triple but it happens over three months and not the three seconds one via SMS, phone call, email, WhatsApp etc done by misinformed men. During the three months a marriage counselor who is usually the Qazi ( the local judge - there is no priest system in Islam ) tries to intercede if the wife wants, for the first month, the second and the third, with each month if not succeeding being declared a Talaq month and if after three months they don't patch up then the Talaq is brought into effect and the marriage dissolved. This system is the basis for modern Western marriage counselling which you in India also can use.
I repeat and note the underlined :
And I suppose the qazi doing the triple talaq process ( three months ) will use the judicial divorce method.
1. I don't see why a girl of 16 has to be called a child. It is against Nature irrespective of what modern Western laws say. Do people suddenly attain enlightenment when they come upon that magical age of 18 ? Who decided that age of 18 as one of adulthood ? If that age is so magical then everyone over the age of 18 should have contributed to making humanity a very evolved species, with no political and socio-economic tragedies and disharmony. But is that the case ? This voting age of 18 is stupid as is the British-derived political system of multiple parties, five-yearly elections and an unnecessarily complicated political system. I have had 15 or 16-year-old girls looking lasciviously with me. Should they have felt ashamed of themselves ? That Age 18 Magic is not natural. And below describes Hindu marriage practice as in the 1974 film Ankur which is set in Andhra Pradesh but existed everywhere in India :
How will you look at this including the film ? Note that the words "child marriage" above is an effect of modern Indian law but wasn't seen as that during the time the film is set in and it happens even now among Hindus.
2. You should search for the marriage ages of Hindu deities.
The burqa has nothing to do with Islam. It is really a pre-Islamic Jewish garment which got adopted into some Muslim societies and in some eras. An Egyptian Muslim woman parliamentarian and academic, Amna Nosseir, has researched on this and has called for a ban on the burqa :
You should also watch this vid from 1966 of a speech by the great Egyptian leader Jamal Abdul Nasser who recounts his meeting with the chief of the Muslim Brotherhood group who wanted Nasser to impose the burqa on Egyptian women. Nasser makes fun of the burqa. Note the reaction of the audience. There are English subtitles.
Below is a picture of the female protagonist ( on the left ) of the Turkish serial Ertugrul which is about the setting up of the Ottoman / Usmania / Usmanli Empire. Does she wear the burqa ?
Her again in the serial :
Among my own relatives none of the women wore the burqa about 15 to 20 years ago. Now most do. This is basically a societal change brought by the misguided and misinformed Tablighi Jamaat. Most of the Muslim women who wear the burqa in the world live in India. An unfortunate situation but nothing to do with real Islam. There is no Quranic verse that declares the imposition of the burqa. It is a cultural problem.
1. Such a system emerged because of the anticipation of the phase of early Muslim wars where there would be many male casualties and therefore many widows who have to be given a socio-economically secure life.
2. But idea-wise a man can have four wives only if he can provide equally for all of them. Do justice for all of them.
You tell me.
Of course she can.
You should have read that document properly. Note the underlined :
So the daughter receives double property / money - one from her ancestral share and other from her marriage ( the mehr and maintenance ). The son does not receive anything from his wife. And other than that the female also has right to self-acquired property and money. Meaning through some business or investment. It is logical. But this is according to historic Islamic law which is an evolved law compared to laws of other religions and even modern Western law but in this thread I present the outline of a new economic system which abolishes the traditional money system while keeping a money system but implements the Communist ideal of abolishing economic classes ( rich, middle, poor ). This new system improves upon Islamic law and Communist ideal.
