Did You Hear About This?
I promise: I am not making up the following. I heard the following on a newscast recently. Here is the gist of the story.
It seems that somewhere-in-Islamia, a Muslim married couple were sleeping through the night. The man, however, muttered in his sleep, and, over the night, he uttered "divorce" three times. The couple awoke, under Sharia, to find themselves divorced.
They went to Sharia court to reconcile this matter since they did not want to be divorced. However, the court gray-beard informed them that there was no reversal or annulment possible under Islam. The woman had to move out pronto.
To be able to return as wife to her original husband, she must (1.) marry another man, and (2.) that man must divorce her. Only then can she remarry the man she was married to until he talked in his sleep.
I am NOT making this up.
