In case if you are not able to read The Hindu, we will post important words every day from editorial section. These vocab words will help you a lot in your competitive exams.

1.Tizzy (noun)
Meaning: a state of nervous excitement or agitation.
Example: When the five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court began hearing petitions challenging the validity of instant triple talaq, halala and polygamy, there was a tizzy of excitement across India, especially in Muslim circles.


2.Pertain (verb)
Meaning: be appropriate, related, or applicable to.
Synonyms: concern, relate to, be related to, be connected with, be relevant to, have relevance to, apply to, be pertinent to, have reference to, refer to, have a bearing on, appertain to, bear on, affect, involve, cover.
ExampleIt pertained to the rights of Hindu daughters under the Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005. Aware of this fact, the court conceded (in paragraphs 27-30 of the judgment) that the issue of gender discrimination in Muslim law was not directly involved in the appeal before them.

3.Metamorphose (verb)
Meaning:To change into a wholly different form or appearance; transform.
ExampleIndeed, amid a storm of media hype, one of these issues — triple talaq — metamorphosed into a convenient stick in the hands of majoritarian forces to beat the Muslims with.

4.Presumption (noun)
Meaningan idea that is taken to be true on the basis of probability.
Synonyms:  brazenness, audacity, boldness, audaciousness, temerity, arrogance, egotism, front, presumptuousness, pertness, forwardness.
ExampleTherefore, even the hypothetical presumption that all these women were divorced instantly would not take the number of triple talaq-divorced Muslim women in India beyond quarter per cent of their population — 2.12 lakh is just 0.25% of 83.97 million.

5.Whopping (adjective)
Meaningvery large.
Synonyms: huge, massive, enormous, gigantic, very big, very large, great, giant, colossal, mammoth, vast, immense, tremendous, mighty, stupendous, monumental, epic, prodigious, mountainous, monstrous, titanic, towering, elephantine, king-sized, king-size, gargantuan, Herculean, Brobdingnagian, substantial, extensive, hefty, bulky, weighty, heavy.
ExampleCompare this to the fact that a whopping 48.1% of Muslim women in India are illiterate as per the same census, which no Muslim women’s group seems to be aware of.

6.Subservient (adjective)
Meaningprepared to obey others unquestioningly.
Synonyms:  submissive, deferential, acquiescent, compliant, accommodating,obedient, dutiful, duteous, biddable, yielding, meek, docile, ductile, pliant,passive, unassertive, spiritless, subdued, humble, timid.
ExampleMuslim theologians must understand that concepts not sanctified by the primary source of Muslim law, the Koran, cannot be declared as essential parts of Islam irrespective of where they draw their legitimacy from. All sources of Islamic law, be it hadees, ijma or qiyas, are subservient to the Koran.

7.Reconciliation (noun)
Meaningthe restoration of friendly relations.
Synonyms:  reuniting, reunion, bringing (back) together (again), conciliation.
ExampleAnd as per the Koran, only after four serious attempts at reconciliation (which includes arbitration) is a Muslim husband permitted to utter the first divorce, which is followed by a three-month waiting period called iddah.

8.Conjugal (adjective)
Meaningrelating to marriage or the relationship between a married couple.
Synonyms: marital, matrimonial, nuptial, marriage, married, wedded, connubial, bridal.
ExampleIf within iddah the marital dispute gets resolved, conjugal relations may be resumed without undergoing the procedure of remarriage. But after the expiry of iddah the husband can either re-contract the existing marriage on fresh and mutually agreeable terms or irrevocably divorce his wife — in the presence of two witnesses — by pronouncing the final talaq.

9.Pronouncement (noun)
Meaninga formal or authoritative announcement or declaration.
Synonyms: announcement, proclamation, declaration, formal statement, assertion, judgement, ruling, adjudication, decree, edict, ordinance, dictum, promulgation, deliverance.
ExampleIt may be pointed out here that the pronouncement of three talaqs in one sitting does not constitute even one divorce as held by the Ahl-e-Hadees sect. In the Koranic view, first divorce becomes effectual only after the parties have gone through the process of reconciliation and arbitration.

10.Categorically (adverb)
Meaningin a way that is unambiguously explicit and direct.
ExampleOn the contrary, the preface to the AIMLPB’s Compendium of Islamic Laws released in 2001 categorically states that the original Urdu version of the compendium contains extensive notes in Arabic drawn from “authentic books of the Hanafi law”, which is a clear indication of the board's intention to view Islam only through the prism of Hanafi law and nothing else.
