Unfit Imams Attack Muslim Marriage – Their New Strategy

By Daniel Haqiqatjou -August 28, 2022

Unfit and incompetent Imams are spreading a new type of deviance. They are encouraging Muslim women to force men to sign contracts before marriage vowing not to marry additional wives and to grant divorce upon the woman’s request.
No Muslim man should agree to such stipulations. The fact that she would propose such things is a red flag indicating that this is a person who doesn’t care to follow the rulings of Islam.
The fact is, marriage in Islam does not grant equal power and authority to husband and wife (nor does it require equal responsibility).
But feminists want to nullify this Allah-ordained imbalance in power by creating these kinds of pre-nikah stipulations in the marriage contract.

This is because they are not satisfied with the ruling of Allah and they desire to change this sacred institution of marriage in the image of feminism.
These imams will defend themselves by saying, “But this type of stipulation is allowed in some schools of fiqh.” Ok, if such stipulations can be made, then maybe Muslim women should also sign binding contracts pre-nikah that they will forego secularized court systems if there is any problems in the marriage. And they will accept the minimum mahr. And they will not fight for custody of children in case of divorce. And… and…
Would any of these feminists agree to that?
The problem is, even if she does agree, no secular court will uphold such a contract. This is because the secular court systems severely disadvantage men as far as family law, divorce, and custody are concerned. This is the oppressive reality, and many Muslim women take advantage of this while disregarding the Sharia and basic Islamic ethics.
Unfit imams are so ignorant about this oppressive reality that they want to go even further and make sure to destroy even the last-remaining vestiges of privileges that Islamic marriage gives to men. They think that they know better than Allah and His Messenger ﷺ.
These are the kinds of things that are destroying marriage for the Muslim community today. Let’s not forget the role of Unfit Imams.
