It's far easier to act as if critics of Islam have a problem with Muslims as people than it is to accept the uncomfortable truth that Islam is different.

What Does Islam Teach About...

Divorce

Can a Muslim man divorce his wife simply by repeating "I divorce you" three times?

Yes. It is a controversial practice called the talaq or "triple-talaq."

Anytime a wife is not menstruating, a husband may divorce her by saying, "I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you," effectively throwing her out on the street and leaving him free to obtain a new wife.

Quran

Islamic law on this issue is based on the Hadith and a creative interpretation of verse  2:229.

Hadith and Sira

Muslim (9:3493) - This is one of several hadith in which it is clear that Muhammad practiced the triple talaq and approved of his followers doing the same.

Notes

Some Islamic scholars believe that it isn't right to do this in one sitting. They say that there should be a period of time between the "three strikes."

Women's rights groups in the Muslim world are waging an uphill battle to prevent governments from recognizing the triple talaq - with some success in the more moderate countries; however, it will always be honored by Islamic courts.

Under Islamic law, once a marriage is consummated, a wife has no right to divorce her husband without his permission, even though she may be cast out at will for any reason.
