The wife told the court that she had three boys for her husband and urged the court to grant her the custody of the children.

The Judge dissolved the marriage and granted Lateefat the custody of the children.

Ahmed, however, ordered that Abdul should have access to the children at any reasonable time.

Ahmed said that the court had served the ex-husband a notice by Lateefat seeking for divorce since Sept. 7, but Abdul had never appeared in court.

He said that the ex-husband had sent a letter to the court to grant Lateefat request.

The court, therefore, ordered that a notice of divorce should be serve on the man and the woman should observe three months Iddah (a period the woman would stay without associating with another man) as prescribed by Shariah law.
