Q: My husband gave me only one written divorce (not 3) 3 years back in dubai. After that he realized and made rujoo. I don’t remember after how many days, as I am Sunni Muslim and my husband is Shia, our beliefs are different. I have heard so many times that if a person gave one time divorce and make rujoo (intercourse) then the marriage will continue, I want to know do I have to make any iddat at that time, we don’t know, but if there would be any iddat time then what will I do, do I have to give kuffara? We now moved to Canada one year back from dubai. I will be very thankful as I am very confuse about iddat.
A: The marriage between sunnis and shias is not right. It is compulsory for you to break away from him.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
