If husband give the 2nd and/or 3rd Divorce at the end of 1st month of her Iddat, would Iddat be extended for extra month as well?

I am aware of the fact that wife?s Iddat starts as soon as Husband give her 1st Divorce. Q.1. If husband give the 2nd and/or 3rd Divorce at the end of 1st month of her Iddat, would Iddat be extended for extra month as well? Q2. If Husband gives the 2nd and/or 3rd Divorce after the completion of her Iddat then would she have to sit in Iddat again because of 2nd and 3rd Divorce? or can she carry on with her normal life after her 1st Iddat.? Jazakallah

Answer

If the husband gaver one divorce and after that he never took the divorce
back and gave the 2nd and 3rd divorce then she has become haraam upon her
husband. However if the husband gave only a 2nd divorce during her iddat
then the husband still has a chance to take his divorce back. This woman’s
iddat started after the first divorce and will finish after the completion
of her 3rd menses even though the husband gave the 2nd or 3rd divorce during
the iddat.

If the husband gave a divorce and then took her back during her iddat, and
thereafter gave a divorce again then she will have to commence her iddat
again.

However if the iddat was completed and the husband never took the divorce
back during this time then the Nikah between the husband and wife no longer
remains. Therefore if the husband gave another divorce it will not count,
and she will not have to sit in iddat again. She can move on with her life
because he is no longer her husband.
