My husband gave me talaq-e-ba’in and told me it is one divorce. I started my iddah but during that time he came back and we were intimate. He still lives separately but he meets me and speaks to me regularly. I dont understand much about the rules and laws against talaq and getting back together. All I’ve been told by him is that the doors are open for him.
Just wondering if you could help me on the laws and what’s allowed and what isnt.
Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
Kindly send the exact words that he uttered, so that we can confirm whether it was indeed Talaaq e Baain, or if it was Talaaq Raj’i.
If it was Talaaq e Baain, you would need to make Nikah again, before you can get back together. If it was Talaaq e Raj’i, you may reconcile without any need for Nikah.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
