Books – Hassan Morsi:
Dr. Shawqi Allam, Mufti of the Republic, Head of the General Secretariat for Fatwas and Roles in the World, said that Dar Al-Ifta scholars are investigating the husband to find out whether he was aware of the term divorce or not.
He added, during his meeting with the journalist Hamdi Rizk, on the “Look” program on the “Echo of the Country” channel, that if the scholars of the house find that the husband did not know what to say because of anger, for example, and he pronounced the divorce without knowing or intending, then the divorce does not take place according to the agreement of the scholars, because The Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “There is no divorce in closing,” and the scholars interpreted it as anger or compulsion.
The Mufti pointed out that the books of jurisprudence contain “jurisprudential breakthroughs” that scholars resort to to preserve the family entity, because marriage is a contract that is proven with certainty, and it should not be lifted except with certainty.
The Mufti explained that dealing with divorce cases within the Dar al-Ifta is carried out according to an organized and disciplined method that goes through three stages; It begins with the fatwa trustee’s dealings with it. If it is not possible for the fatwa trustees to find a solution in the presence of doubt about its occurrence, it is referred to a specialized committee consisting of three scholars. If there is a suspicion that the divorce took place, it is referred to him personally, and he may host the parties to the divorce incident in his office to ensure that the divorce took place or to find a solution, and this is in order to preserve the family, which is the nucleus of society.
