What is the Islamic view of divorce?

While divorce is generally allowed in Muslim communities, there is a hadith (prophetic saying) describing divorce as “the most hated lawful thing,” because it breaks up the family. Muslims generally encourage couples considering divorce to make use of counseling and mediation. However, if these attempts fail, divorce as a last option is allowed and may, in some situations, be the best attainable outcome.
