Q: My husband told me divorce two times with the time difference is one year. He told me divoce one time and again after one year he told me one time divorce total two times. My nikah nama name is _________ but when he told me divorce he said my sencond name my nick name. So our relation is finished or not?
A: If your husband divorced you the first time and thereafter took you back in his nikah, and now he had issued the second divorce, then in total two divorces have taken place. Your iddat has commenced. Your husband has the right to revoke the talaaq during the iddat period and take you back in his nikaah. If he does not take you back in his nikaah during the iddat period, then it will no longer be permissible for him to revoke the talaaq, however, if you both wish to reconcile after the iddat period, then a new nikah will have to be performed with a separate mahr.
Through divorcing you using your nickname, the divorce is valid.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
