Dr Hatta is not forced to divorce his wife.
But to represent PAS in Election, he did agree voluntarily to accept the Taklik (term) once he leave PAS while he is still a MP (Member of Parliament), his wife is divorced automatically and forever (3rd degree divorce).
He was free to decide in that occasion. PAS can find other Election candidate if he choose not to accept the Term. Other candidates are many in number as we all know in today’s politics.
But if choose to accept the Terms and Conditions, he is binded to fulfill them.
Hadis المؤمنون على شروطه “Org2 beriman terikat dgn Terms and Conditions yg mereka persetujui”.
Election candidates represent not only the parties, but they are the symbols and products of millions of Ringgit spent during Election, throughout the struggling years, not to mention the efforts, time, tears etc being sacrificed by parties’ members in cities, tiwns and villages.
Without Taklik (or Terms), all these huge sacrifices are at great risk and to the extent swapping parties (lompat parti) may result in change of governments and powers, instabilities in countries, foreign interferes etc.
Even other than the 3rd degree Divorce is not enough to curb such possibilities to happen.
In any critical situation, whereby an MP or ADUN has a single but determining vote, he may swap party, automatically divorcing his wife with that action, change goverment by his determining vote and then remarry his wife again.
Beside the GHB incident, such situation may also happen when an MP being offered millions of Ringgit to swap party. He then be a millionare, living luxuriously the same wife but at the expense of all the sacrifices made by the party and its members making him victorious in the General Election.
We can also put it in more positive way :
1- Yes, the Takliq (term) does force Dr Hatta, but it forces him to keep his beloved wife and children by not involve in the Workers Party at least until the next GE 2017.
2- He fulfill his oath with Allah swt and PAS, steadfast with the amanah towards the PAS leaders & workers as their representative in the Parliament, also at least until the next GE.
Our next GE is just around the corner – only 2 years to go – after which he will have all his assets he beloved ie Allah swt pleasure, beloved wife and children, be part of the Worker Party with no harm on him, his family and both parties whatsoever. I can’t see the rush is justifyable.
Looking back what triggered the issue, it was just he was not elected as the Central Committee member. Not a big deal. Be patient and be a good worker then. It was just a common organisational even one may say the process was quite bitter in a way or another.
Prove yourself again. Allah swt and other PAS members are evaluating your performance.
وَقُلِ اعْمَلُوا فَسَيَرَى اللَّهُ عَمَلَكُمْ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۖ وَسَتُرَدُّونَ إِلَىٰ عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
Dan katakanlah (wahai Muhammad): Beramalah kamu (akan segala yang diperintahkan), maka Allah dan RasulNya serta orang-orang yang beriman akan melihat apa yang kamu kerjakan; dan kamu akan dikembalikan kepada (Allah) Yang Mengetahui perkara-perkara yang ghaib dan yang nyata, kemudian Ia menerangkan kepada kamu apa yang kamu telah kerjakan”.
In summarise, I advise my beloved brother to keep his wife and children, complete his term as PAS MP for just another 2 years until the next GE, utilise the next 2-year period to ponder, evaluate and derermine your destiny. Let the time play its role as well. GHB must give a grace period for him to sort himself.
Immediately after the GE14 (2017), he is free to choose any political vehicle he find it suits him and his beloved wife.
It is true that any decision my the by the Lord Judge of Mahkamah Syariah only takes effect in the court after hearings etc. But it is a bless the Lord Judge made a remark a few days ago saying your wife was divorced just to remind you the verdict should the matter being brought to the court.
Either you go to the court now for the Talak 3 case, or be brought to the court later for committing the crime of Khalwat.
So, you still have time to sort the matter. Go to the court and say you haven’t yet register officially as member of the Worker Party and will continue to serve PAS for the next 2 years until the GE14.
Your brother in Islam,
Abdul Halim Abdullah
