Taking one’s wife back after three talaaqs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Please explain the following verse to me regarding divorce. Can a husband take his wife back after 3 talaqs given in one sitting.

When you divorce women, and they fulfill the term of their waiting period, either take them back on equitable terms or set them free on equitable terms; do not take them back to injure them or to take undue advantage— If anyone does that, He wrongs his own soul. Do not regard God’s signs as a jest. (Qur’an 2:231)


A: No, he cannot.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
