Aceh Shari'a Court Decision No. 52 of 2009

The appellant sought to challenge the decision of the Banda Aceh Shari'a Court (lower court), which had granted the respondent an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain sughra).

The Court acknowledged that the appellant had endeavoured to reconcile with the respondent. Citing the opinion of ulama in Kitab Iqna' Juz II, however, it noted that it was compelled to grant the respondent a divorce because the respondent was adamant that she and the appellant could not reconcile their differences. Accordingly, the appeal was dismissed.
