Al-Azhar has put an end to the issue of “trial marriage” that has been discussed in Egypt for the last few weeks by making a “haram” statement.
In the written statement made by the Al-Azhar Fatwa Center, it was emphasized that marriage could not be restricted for a period of time, and it was stated that the proposal known as “trial marriage” in the public was “haram”.
In the statement, “Marriage is a heavy contract, not games and entertainment. The condition that two spouses should not be separated for 5 years or less in a so-called trial marriage is a superstitious and unacceptable situation. Stipulating the termination of the marriage contract after a certain period of time voids the contract and makes it “haram”. ” statements were included.
Egyptian lawyer Ahmed Mehran made a suggestion in his post on his Facebook account in October 2020 that “the spouses should marry on the condition that they do not leave for a few years and that they should meet at intervals during this period and not live in the same house in order to reduce the divorce rates in the country.”
It is noteworthy that divorce rates have increased in Egypt in recent years. Egyptian Public Mobilization and Statistics Center announced in June 2019 that the divorce rate in the country increased by 6.7 percent in 2018 compared to the previous year.
