Riyadh,The rising ignorance and falling values are gradually increasing in the kingdom. Where people are celebrating divorce and sending invitation cards.
It is observed that most of the Saudi women are celebrating there divorce.
This type of ceremonies discourage the couples who are planning to get married. Not only that even it is against the Shariah as “divorce is most disliked by Almighty Allah” and its celebration too.
“Divorce celebration is heresy in Islam and contradicts the Shariah principles which stipulate that both parties of the divorce have lawful rights if living together is no longer possible. The two should not forget the teachings of the Qur’an: ‘And forget not (that you are to act with) grace toward one another: verily, God sees all that you do’,” said Hasan Safar, professor of Islamic governance system at the King Abdulaziz University and member of the International Fiqh Council.
He added.“If the husband was badly treating his wife, she should be thankful to God for separating them, and not hold parties. I wonder where the role of parents in giving advice and guidance to their children is gone.”
He further said the grand mufti should advice and guide in this regard and teach the concepts of Islamic law on this matter.
