Husband gives triple talaq in anger, regrets, but divorce stays unless 80 yrs old wife marries someone else

In a bizarre incident that has come to light now, a man now 90 years old, had pronounced triple talaq on his now 80 years old wife in a fit of rage back in 2013, and ever since then they are living separately even though now the man regrets his act. This incident occurred in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.

The man named Habib Shah used to stitch coats for a living. He got paralyzed in 2013, after which his wife started looking after him. One day, possibly because he was frustrated with his illness, he started demanding a coffin cloth for himself. When his wife Ziab-un-Nisa did not oblige to this weird demand, he gave her triple talaq in a fit of rage.

After he realised what he had done, he escalated the matter to the local Mufti. But the solution suggested by the Mufti left them shocked. According to the Mufti, both can live together again like married couple only if they take the route of Nikah Halala, according to which the wife has to marry another man, consummate her marriage with him, and then take talaq from him. Only after this, would she be able to remarry Habib.

All this shocked Ziab-un-Nisa as this is virtually impossible to do at her age, and now she is forced to live separately even though her husband needs her company. She now believes that this practice of triple talaq should be abolished, so that no other woman has to undergo what she had to.

Now Habib lives with his son in a separate house and his wife lives with their younger son in utter poverty. The couple had 11 children out which only 6 are alive.

Habib insists that the divorce was a wrong decision but is not willing to start living with his ex-wife again, regardless of the difficulties he is facing. He claims that traditions should be honoured come what may.
