Does she have the right to the second part of the dowry?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Her husband divorced her on the grounds that she is suffering from a contagious disease, i.e. leprosy, but after visiting a number of doctors it became clear that what she has is not a disease and is not contagious, and it can be removed by laser. Does she have the right to ask for the second part of the dowry?.
