Before Islam, a man had the right to take back his divorced wife, even after divorcing her multiple times. Shaykh Abdul-Rahim explains that these verses about divorce abrogated this heinous practice. The weightiness of these ayat include how to give divorce, irrevocable- and revocable divorce, and how a woman can ransom herself if her husband refuses to divorce. Shaykh Reasat stresses that it is incumbent on all believers to study the fiqh of marriage and divorce – claiming ignorance is not valid.
