Today, Thursday, the Egyptian Dar Al-Iftaa issued a fatwa in response to what was raised by an interview with an Egyptian “legal analyst” on the “Happening in Egypt” program broadcast on MBC Egypt, where he confirmed that he had married 33 times in two years “in order to return the wives To their husbands after they divorced 3 times as a charitable act.
The Dar Al-Iftaa said, “The marriage of a woman who has been abducted – that is: a three-time-divorced woman – in order for her to be permissible for the first husband, which is known as (marriage with the condition of tahlil) – is legally forbidden by the agreement of the jurists.”
In the interview, Muhammad Al-Mallah said that he began this experience when “one of my co-workers suggested that I marry her friend, who had been divorced three times, so that she would return to her husband as a humanitarian act that I would like the face of God.”
He added, “I actually married her and it was a full-fledged marriage, after which we separated and she returned to her husband and the matter ended (…) After a while it happened again and I got married at the suggestion of my friends as well.”
He continued, “I do this for the sake of God as a voluntary work without any reward for God alone, and I do not receive money in order to protect homes from ruin and the separation of husbands, and I have a page on Facebook that promotes this matter.”
But Mabrouk Attia, a professor at Al-Azhar University, replied, “It cannot be for the sake of God, you are violating his Sharia.”
Commenting on this, the navigator said: “If the Dar Al-Iftaa tells me that this act is wrong, I will stop it.”
