NIKAH HALALA

Nikah Halala is an act where a divorced Muslim woman, who wishes to return to her first husband, is made to marry and consummate with another man as per the Sharia rules. However, many women have been victimised by people trying to make money, or have willfully exploited a desperate situation.
