Q: One of my cousin brother living far from us had divorced his wife. We have come to know this through phone calls from other relatives and when we met he himself accepted that he had divorced. His wife also said to everyone that she is divorced and celebrated her birthday in happiness after divorce, They have divorced each other almost 6 months back. But from time of divorce to till date both are staying together in same house. They had fixed their son marriage and had the function few days back but few people didn’t attend saying it’s not halaal/advisable to eat as the parent still stay together after divorce without going for halaala? Please give advice on this.
A: Obviously it is impermissible for them to live together after she has been divorced thrice.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
