SARIH. صريح
Explicit or clear.
A term used in Muslim law for that which is express in contradistinction to that which is kinayah, or implied. For example, the Talaqu ‘s-sarih, is an explicit form of divorce, whilst Talaqu ‘l-kinayah is an implied form of divorce, as when a man says to his wife, “Thou art free.”
