Q: If husband and wife after nikaah and before rukhsati go out for just a drive and don’t have some sexual relation, in that case the husband give three talaqs to his wife? So now can he get her as his wife again without halaala? And also if the husband has this thinking in mind that tajdeed-e-nikah will be obviously done before rukhsati that’s why he didn’t have that fear of talaaq and also he had wanted to pressurizee the wife, he just didn’t mean that?
A: If he has issued three talaaqs in one word i.e. he said I give you 3 talaaqs then all 3 talaaqs are valid. Hence he will not be able to get back to her without halaalah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
