Coming back together after one year of divorce

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Question:

IF A TALAQ WAS SAID THREE TIMES OUT OF ANGER 4 YEARS AGO THEN THE PERSON AND HIS WIFE HAD SEPARATED FOR ALMOST 1 YEARS, BUT IS BACK TOGETHER NOW, WHAT POSITION DO THEN STAND AND WHAT CAN BE DONE.ALL HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Answer:

Assalaamu Alaikum,

The three divorces that were said brought about a total end to the marriage. Even though the parties were separated for one year, they were not allowed to come back together as husband and wife. If they wish to unite as husband and wife, they have to remarry. However, this re marriage can only be done when the divorced wife marries another husband and he divorces her. After this, she will pass her iddah period and will then be allowed to marry the former husband.
