India is a multicultural country where every religion has got its freedom to pursue their practices and faith. To accelerate this, India embodies different personal laws for different religions. Amongst them, Muslim community being the biggest minority has always been in limelight. Currently, the burning topic is Triple Talaq practice among them. But instead of resorting to the enactment of Triple Talaq Act 2019, it will be better to acknowledge the Muslim women regarding their rights of divorce well versed in the holy book Quran. The paper is an attempt to evaluate the knowledge of Muslim women of Chhattisgarh regarding their rights of divorce as prescribed in the Quran, by collecting samples from non-probability method. Findings revealed that majority of the women have heard about the various procedures of divorce accorded to them, but they lack clarity regarding this.
