Q: I gave my wife 3 talaaqs at once in the state of anger and she was also on her periods. What can be done to rectify this mistake? We want to get back together since it’s only been a couple of days. Some say that it’s classed as one talaaq.
The Sahaabah, Taabi’een, Tab’ut-Taabi’een as well as all the four schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maaliki, Shaafi and Hambali) are all unanimous on the fact that if a person issues three Talaaqs individually or collectively (to a women with whom the nikaah was consummated), three Talaaqs will take place and it will be Haraam for them to live together.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
