Then he ran away immediately,” he continued, “On that day, I beat her until she confessed that she had been in a relationship with him for years.”

While the husband (the first accused) was shopping with his second wife in a shopping center in Dubai, his first wife (the second accused) saw them in the same centre, and as soon as she saw her husband and his second wife accompanied him, she became agitated and nervous, so she insulted her husband and called him obscene words, which would scratch His honor, and that was in front of those in the center, so he tried to calm her down, asking her to discuss these family matters at home, but she was not deterred, so he pushed her away from him, then beat her to silence her, when passers-by intervened to break the fight.

The knot of a man and two women

Lawyer Harun Tahlak denounced “the failure to accept the testimony of a single woman in judicial applications to prove the harm that occurs to the wife, as evidence requires two women joined by a man, so the testimony of a million women is not acceptable unless a man testifies with them.”

Tahlak explained that “marital life is not without problems, but if it reaches the level of material and moral harm against the other, husband or wife, then Article 117 of the Personal Status Law allows each of them to file a divorce suit for damage, knowing that it is difficult to prove the damage. Moral and verbal, such as cursing, cursing, contempt and contempt in marital life, which is described as privacy, which the spouses do not usually see their children and servants.

Article 122, which decided that harm is proven by legal means of proof, including the testimony of witnesses, and stipulated in the fourth paragraph of Article “The testimony of a witness, male or female, is accepted, with the exception of the origin of the branch or the offshoot of the origin when the witness fulfills the conditions of testimony according to Sharia.” .

He considered that “if this article did not prohibit the testimony of fathers to their children, or vice versa, it would be better, given the nature of married life.” He added, “Just as if the word (even one) was increased, it would be better, until the testimony of a single woman entered, raising the thumb and cutting the dispute in judicial applications. , which is still living the knot of a man and two women, so it is not acceptable to prove the harm by the testimony of one woman, rather there must be two women joined by a man, for the testimony of a million women is not acceptable unless a man testifies with them.”

And he saw that “this jurisprudence is the right side, and the truth is not limited to a particular doctrine, and we all have to untie this knot with the ropes of truth, and the right here is to accept the testimony of one woman. In it the judge is broader than the ways that God guided the owner of the right to preserve his right in them, and there is a great difference between the two matters,” considering that “a woman today is worth a million men in martyrdom.”
