Divorce in Pregnancy

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Can your husband talaq (divorce) you when you are 6 months pregnant? And what is the iddah (waiting) period for that?

A: If he does that, Talaaq will take place.

For a woman who experiences Haidh (monthly menses) the Iddah is three Haidh. For a woman who does not experience Haidh it is three months and for a pregnant woman it is delivery of her baby.
