Question: Assalamu Alaikum Mufti Saaheb, I have a small inquiry. We know that Iddah is Fardh after Talaaq. so in the case of a woman who is in Iddah after 3 divorces were given to her, if she then happens to commit fornication with the same Guy who divorced her 3 times, does she have to start over her Full period of Iddah, or does she continue from where it was.
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
She will continue the iddah from where it was. She does not have to start over. (Fatawa Alamgiri Vol.2 pg. 161- Fatawa Raheemiya Vol 8 pg 414 Darul Ishaa’at Karachi Pakistan 2009).
And Allah Knows Best
