[font=""trebuchet ms""]1) Talaq[/font]

[font=""trebuchet ms""]A muslim man may pronounce talaq orally, as long as the words used by him are unambiguous and definite. Such talaq takes effect immediately. He can also make a deed viz talaqnama in which he expresses his intention or records the oral talaq.The talaqnama also takes effect immediately.[/font]

[font=""trebuchet ms""]2) Tufweez:[/font]

[font=""trebuchet ms""]Here the husband delegates the power to give talaq to the wife or even a third person. This 'delegated power' is operative only on the existence of certain circumstances which must be reasonable and consistent with the principles of Muslim law. If the circumstances that are mentioned exist, the wife is at liberty to divorce her husband. Such authority, if delegated for a temporary period, is considered irrevocable. On the other hand, if it is delegated permanently, it is revocable.[/font]

[font=""trebuchet ms""]3) Khula:[/font]

[font=""trebuchet ms""]A Khula is a form of divorce with the consent and at the initiative of the wife. The wife gives or agrees to give a consideration to the husband for her release from the marriage tie. Relieving the husband from payment of mahar to the wife may be a consideration. However, non-payment of consideration will not invalidate such a divorce. [/font]

[font=""trebuchet ms""]4) Mubarat:[/font]

[font=Arial][font=""trebuchet ms""]This is divorce my mutual consent[/font]
