From the Reasons of Divorce

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, Most Merciful. Oh Allaah send peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, just as You have sent peace and blessings upon Ibraaheem and the family of Ibraaheem. Verily You are the One Who is praised, the Glorious. As for what proceeds; 

From the Reasons of Divorce by Sheikh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez ibn Baaz, may Allaah have mercy upon him.

Question: What are some of the reasons for the occurence of divorce?

Sheikh Bin Baaz answers: “Divorce has numerous reasons for its’ occurence.

From them;

1: A lack of harmony between the spouses, so as a result there isn’t love between either one of them.

2: Bad conduct from the woman or her lack of listening to and obeying her husband in that which is ma’roof (all that is good).

3: Bad manners from the husband and him oppressing the woman.

4: Him not being able to fulfill her rights or vice-versa, her not being able to fulfill his rights.

5: Both spouses falling into sins (constantly without repenting) or even one of them. Hence their situation will become uglified due to that. Until the end result of it will be divorce.

6: The husband using drugs and/or intoxicants or the wife engaging in such forbidden acts.

7: A bad relationship between the wife and her husbands parents or simply one of them[TN]. And a lack of utilizing wise procedures when dealing with them, i.e. the parents.

8: The woman having a poor concern for her hygiene and her scarcity of looking attractive to her husband by wearing nice clothes, using perfume, pleasant speech and a cheerful face when the two meet with one another.”

TN: This similarly applies to the husband and his wifes’ parents also.
