Divorce Process – Hounslow Jamia Masjid
Please note the Masjid does not provide a form of divorce initiated by the wife, which is effected by the return of her husband’s wedding gift. This is known as Khula. We cater for Talaq, the divorce pronounced by the husband. For this to take place, both parties have to be in agreement and be physically present.
