Q. Salam-Alaikum, I am Kamar Syed – Deputy Secretary, Home Department. In your elegant speech, you have mentioned that for a divorced woman… after the divorce, the husband looks after her during the period of ‘iddat’… maintenance allowance is given to her – But after ‘iddat’, I presume that the parents are supposed to look after the girl – In case the parents do not have the provisions to look after the girl, I would ask you… what is the girl suppose to do?

A. (Dr. Zakir): Sister has asked a very good question, that suppose a lady, she is  divorced – It is the duty of the husband, to provide support till the ‘iddat’ period, which lasts for may be 3 months, or till pregnancy. After that… as I mentioned in my lecture, it is the duty of the father or the brother, to look after her. If suppose, the father and the brother are unable to look after such ladies, it is the duty of the other close relatives, to look after her. If the other close relatives do not look after her, it is the duty of the Ummah, Muslim… Muslim Ummah… that we should set up organisations, and have Zakat funds, with which we can look after such ladies. Even if this does not work, it is the duty of the Islamic State, as the last resort, to look after such ladies. Hope that answers the question.
