Esteemed scholar Ml Sulaiman Moola says while divorce has become the norm among Muslim communities, parents are using children to attack each other in a show of defiance and malice.
Ml Moola was rendering a short naseeha to advise couples on divorce and the effect it has on children.
There have been many concerns raised by esteemed Ulama about children being used as pawns after a painful divorce, however this has fallen on the wayside with many couples not taking heed.
Ml Moola says it’s sad to witness the level at which a parent would stoop to attack his or her spouse after divorce.
“More tragic than that is by and large one parent either deliberately or inadvertently negatively indoctrinates the children against the other parent. Often the children are used as a ransom against that parent and I’ve personally have dealt with so many cases where either the mother or the father are crying because the other partner has barred them from seeing their own children.”
Ml Moola has advised couples to take heed of the teachings of Islam and advice from Ulama when it comes to divorce and to ensure that children are not used weapons against another parent.
