Divorce

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِذَا طَلَّقْتُمُ النِّسَاء فَطَلِّقُوهُنَّ لِعِدَّتِهِنَّ وَأَحْصُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ رَبَّكُمْ لَا تُخْرِجُوهُنَّ مِن بُيُوتِهِنَّ وَلَا يَخْرُجْنَ إِلَّا أَن يَأْتِينَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ مُّبَيِّنَةٍ وَتِلْكَ حُدُودُ اللَّهِ وَمَن يَتَعَدَّ حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَقَدْ ظَلَمَ نَفْسَهُ لَا تَدْرِي لَعَلَّ اللَّهَ يُحْدِثُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ أَمْرًا

“O PROPHET! When you intend to divorce women, divorce them with a view to the waiting period appointed for them, and reckon the period [carefully], and be conscious of God, your Sustainer. Do not expel them from their homes; and neither shall they [be made to] leave unless they become openly guilty of immoral conduct. These, then, are the bounds set by God – and he who transgresses the bounds set by God does indeed sin against himself: [for, O man, although] thou knowest it not, after that [first breach] God may well cause something new to come about.” Quran 65:1

In Islam, divorce is permissible when serious differences arise which cannot be resolved through reconciliation. However, it has to be the last resort, for the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh&hf) has described divorce as the most detestable of all of the lawful things in the sight of God.

The Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno certifies the civil divorce and provides Islamic divorce. In order to get divorced, one would need the following documents:

1. A court decision that confirms the marriage has been terminated.

2. A valid identification such as driver license, passport, I.D., etc…

3. Two witnesses who are Muslim
