Three talaaqs

Q: If someone says three talaaqs at the same time, does talaaq take place? If not, how should he give the second and third?


A: The Sahaabah, Taabi’een, Tab’ut-Taabi’een as well as all the four schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maaliki, Shaafi and Hambali) are all unanimous on the fact that if a person issues three Talaaqs individually or collectively (to a women with whom the nikaah was consummated), three Talaaqs will take place and it will be Haraam for them to live together.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
