Sharee Council is one of the foremost Islamic legal service providers in the UK, established by Shaikh Yakub Qasmi (rahimah-ullah). Our office is on Thornhill Road, Dewsbury and our contact number is 01924 464122. We have received several complaints concerning individuals purporting to be linked to Sharee Council. Please be cautious.

Request Talaq


Send a talaq document to the husband if he is in agreement to grant the talaq.

In the event of the wife wanting a talaq and husband agreeing to grant talaq, the wife can request the Sharee Council to send the relevant paperwork to the husband for him to sign and return. Once received and verified, the Sharee Council will issue a certificate to both parties. The cost of this service is borne by the wife who initiates this process.

Additional Information

Islam encourages marital life and advocates settling of differences in an amicable manner. Islam also acknowledges that the only acceptable resolution to a marital dispute may at times be a divorce. Islamic law outlines several methods of terminating a marriage, deriving its rules and guidelines from the Quran and Sunnah.

Of the several methods to terminate a marriage in Islam, talaq is usually the quickest and most common method. Allah mentions talaq in the Quran in Surah al-Baqarah, Surah al-Ahzab and Surah al-Talaq. Talaq is never to be taken lightly, something we learn from the hadeeth of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam):

“There are three things which, whether undertaken seriously or in jest, are treated as serious: Nikah, talaq and raj’ah (taking back a wife after a revocable talaq).” [Tirmithi, Abu Dawood, Ibn Majah]

Circumstances vastly differ in each marriage, and as such the talaq will need due consideration: the type of talaq, the number of talaqs, the timing of the talaq(s) etc.

Expert guidance is often needed at the time of talaq. In the unfortunate event that your marriage has reached this stage, our team of Islamic legal experts can help. Relevant advice and guidance are provided to cater for your situation. Our experts will guide both husband and wife through the necessary steps to facilitate the granting of talaq in most correct manner. An Islamic divorce certificate is issued to the divorcing parties as proof of the Islamic divorce.

Our experts strongly recommend, in light of Quranic guidance, that all important affairs in life be substantiated in writing. An Islamic divorce document/certificate serves as proof that:

  • all marital responsibilities and obligations have ceased between the couple
  • any future Islamic matters such as inheritance by way of nikah or financial maintenance are no longer applicable
  • the iddah period (post-divorce waiting period) has commenced as of the date of divorce
  • the parties are free to remarry elsewhere (subject to the passing of iddah for the divorced lady)

The advantages of retaining documentation mentioned above are just some of the reasons an Islamic divorce document is necessary. Often foreign embassies of Muslim countries also ask for documentation to substantiate your Islamic affairs, such as marriage and divorce, from a Sharee Council.

If your talaq has taken place verbally or by other means, and you wish to obtain an Islamic divorce certificate to substantiate this, please use our ‘Attestation of Talaq service. Similarly, divorce being a last resort, counselling is also offered; it is important to explore avenues of reconciliation before a divorce.
