What are the payment considerations for the Khula process in UK?
Sharia law states the consideration to be paid for the Khula must have material worth, and its value may be set to an amount lower than, equal to or higher than the “mahr”. Now UK is a society driven by money, unlike the traditional Islamic countries, where social pressures play a more critical role in decision-making.
So, any Khula divorce UK muftis perform also have to ensure that the payment considerations (which may be a lot higher than the “mahr” in some cases) are agreeable to both the parties and will be honoured.
There are other complicating scenarios to be considered for Khula. For instance, a “khul” agreement may be concluded with someone other than the wife. An Islamic Khula UK Muftis may endorse can result from a stranger asking a man to allow divorce to his wife for a sum he agrees to pay. In some cases, such a divorce may be upheld or dropped in accordance with the Sharia law later if the wife is not aware of this and refuses to consent after she finds out. In such cases, the stranger may have to pay a ransom to the divorcer (Rahmat al-ummah and Farq al-zawaj of al-Ustadh al-Khafif). What a mess! And these are not the only set of issues you can run into, there is a lot more to the Khula process in UK. Do you really want to entangle your life in such problems when you could have gotten expert Sharia law advice before getting into all this? Request a call back to speak with our Sharia law experts.
How do children impact a Khula divorce UK process?
If a man grants his wife with “khul” in exchange for agreeing to maintain the child, she can claim the maintenance from the child’s father if she cannot afford it and he is under compulsion to pay, as per the Islamic law. Also, since we are talking of an Islamic Khula UK Muslim community will be privy to, the maintenance costs can be pretty high, and the man’s source of income may become a bone of contention.
Also, if the mother somehow gains possessions of some means of bearing the costs of the child on her own, the man may become eligible to reclaim the child maintenance from the woman. If the child passes away during the specified period, the divorcer may be entitled for compensation for the reminder of the time, based on the Islamic law covering this condition.
Most Khula divorce lawyers UK provides are unlikely to know the intricacies of the Sharia law to handle the delicate parts of Khula correctly. For a smooth Khula process in UK, that does not result in issues for the involved parties at a later point in time, it is critical that you engage the services of an experienced and qualified Sharia law expert in time.

What are the conditions on wife and husband for Khula?
The woman who is seeking an Islamic Khula UK Muslim world will accept should be an adult who has not lost sanity. “Khul” initiated by a stupid (safih) wife may not be held valid unless permission is ought from her guardian (wali). However, the validity of “khul” may still be doubtful for a “safih” wife even in cases where the “wali” has granted her permission. An authorised Sharia scholar has to step in to determine the validity of “khul” in such scenarios. In addition, there are other requirements to be met by the wife in terms of age, menstruation timing, intercourse, menopausal and pregnancy status, etc.
The husband granting “khul” also needs to be a sane adult. There may be some concerns to be addressed when a “khul” is granted by a “mumayyiz” or discerning minor. If the husband is going through a fit of anger while granting “khul”, a Sharia law practitioner will need to determine if the rage somehow affects the intent. This is something that cannot be done by any non-Sharia law practicing Khula divorce lawyers UK can provide.
Then there is the question of validity of “khul” if the husband is stupid (“safih”). In such cases, the guardian may receive the consideration instead of the man himself.
In case a sick man who is counting his last days grants a “khul”, it is valid. To succeed with an Islamic Khula UK Muslim world will endorse and not cause issues down the road, even in such seemingly straightforward scenarios, can quickly get out of hand if anyone challenges the Khula at a later point in time. If any of the parties has remarried by then and have happily moved on in their lives, imagine how many families will get unsettled by such unfortunate turn of events.
