Arab American News report sparks dialogue among Muslim religious leaders
Arab American News
A New America Media Women Immigrants Fellowship story on the difficulties of getting an Islamic divorce has sparked dialogue among local Muslim religious leaders on how to make divorce easier for women.
The article, by Natasha Dado of The Arab American News, describes the difficulties that Muslim women experience when their husbands refuse to grant them a religious divorce. Many are forced to go "imam shopping" and travel across the country to find an imam willing to grant them an Islamic divorce.
On Sept. 25, about 15 imams met in metro Detroit to discuss the article, which was published Sept. 19.
