Can I marry a girl whose nikah is over?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It will be permissible to marry a woman who has been divorced and has also completed her waiting period (iddah) of 3 menstrual cycles. It will not be permissible before this.[1]

It is equally important to note that if the woman is merely ‘separated’ from her husband and the formal Islamic method of divorce has not taken place; it will not be permissible to marry that woman.
