This article explores

Talāq

, which refers to the right of men in Islam to divorce their wives, with particular emphasis upon triple

Talāq

. This article seeks to answer the question of how triple

Talāq

at one time is applied in modern-day Muslim societies, in light of contemporary socio-economic conditions. The historical events surrounding the emergence of triple

Talāq

in Islam demonstrates the possibility of its renewal in Islamic law. This is significant because it demonstrates that, contrary to the teaching of many Muslim scholars including contemporary Ibadī scholars in Oman, change and renewal are not inimical to Islam but rather intrinsic to it. I argue here that the inflexibility of Ibadī scholars regarding triple

Talāq

at one time promotes gender inequality and discriminatory practices in Oman, especially towards women. This article begins by exploring the different methods of

Talāq

in Islamic law. It then focuses on triple

Talāq

at one time (in one event). The discussion of triple

Talāq

at one time aims to explore the interaction between legal, economic and social factors, on one hand, and how these factors have affected the law of triple

Talāq

during both pre-modern and contemporary Muslim societies. Subsequently, the article will examine how contemporary Muslim scholars react to the new social and economic factors associated with triple

Talāq

at one time.
