ظہار۔ شریعت ِاسلامیہ کی روشنی میں
Zihar may be performed both by a male or a female. But there is a condition attached to it. A woman can perform Zihar before marriage, while and a man can perform after marriage. This statement can be elaborated in the following way: If a woman compares someone to be like her brother or father, and or ask him to be her brother or father, and get married later on with him; in any such situation, she will have to pay atonement. In the same way, if a man becomes committed to Zihar after marriage, he would be bound to practice atonement. The value of expiation is equally to be practiced/paid by the offender whether a male or a female, by the Islam. Zihar is established by the Islam in order to reduce and stop/restrict the society from repeating such offences. This article is an approach to comprehend Zihar in the light of Shariyate Islamia by reviewing Quran and Ahadiths.
