LMAO In The Name Of Allah

A Saudi man has divorced his wife by text message, earlier this month.

The man was in Iraq when he sent the message informing her she was no longer his spouse. He followed up with a telephone call to two of his relatives.

The first known divorce in Saudi Arabia by text message using infidel technology . After summoning the two relatives to check they had received word of the husband's intention a court in the Red Sea city of Jeddah finalised the split.

Saudi Arabia practices a strict form of Islamic Sharia law, and clerics preside over Sharia courts as judges so reason and common sense has no place in the court room .

Under the law a man can divorce his wife by saying "I divorce you" three times or using the letters I divo U in text language . Much like the summoning of Beetlejuice and Candyman.

The Saudi man was in Iraq to participate in "what he described as 'jihad," Many Saudis have gone to fight with al Qaeda militants against the Iraqi government and U.S. forces. It is claimed that his wife wouldn't let him go and fight and he had to run away before he bravely divorced her by text.
