Divorced By Text Messaging

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net


A husband Text I divorce three times at the same time…is it a divorce…and what if the couple want to reconcile



As Salaam Alaikum,

Yes, texting the divorce causes the divorce to occur. Seeing that the husband has sent the text to his wife that he has divorced her three times, three divorces will take place immediately.

If the couple wants to reconcile, then the wife will have to marry someone else in a valid marriage contract and must then consummate that marriage. After that, If that husband divorces her or he passes away, then after completing the relevant waiting period, she will be allowed to remarry the first husband in a new marriage.

And Allah Knows best
