Q: I have been separated for 10 months. My wife and I have had no contact during this time. She came to my house one night and we were intimate. The next day I had regretted and wanted to proceed with talaaq. I was advised that I cannot proceed with talaaq for 30 days because of the intimacy we had. My wife had her womb removed and cannot fall pregnant. Can I still request talaaq before the 30 day waiting period?
A: The talaaq has to be in a state of tahaarat and in a state where there was no intimacy.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
