Fatwa Permits Divorce Via Text Message

From MEMRI:

Grand Mufti in UAE, Divorce by Text Message OK

2007-03-02

The Grand Mufti in the United Arab Emirates issued a fatwa (religious edict) permitting the performance of divorce through an SMS message through cell phones. He said divorce through this modern facility does not differ from a divorce written on paper.

There was one provision – the sender of the message must be the husband.

Yet another fine example of how Islam respects and protects women.

But remember, the sender must be the husband.

They have very strict rules on these things.
