As Salaamu Alaikum,
My husband and I got divorced in September 2017, I completed my iddah and we no longer live together. Is it permissible for us to get back together if we have worked out our problems and decide to remarry?
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
If you were divorced with three divorced (whether at one time or on separate occasion), it will not be permissible for both of you to get back together through a remarriage, even though you had completed your iddah and you have been living separate from each other. If you want to remarry your former husband (in the case where you divorced with three divorces), then you will be required to marry someone and consummate the marriage. Then if your husband divorces you, you must complete your iddah of that divorce. After this, you will be allowed to remarry your former husband.
If however, you were not divorced with three divorces, but you were given only one or two. Then, you will be allowed to remarry each other after you have completed your iddah.
And Allah Knows best
