Objection against halaalah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have been told to make a contract for halaala is Haram but if the woman consumates and goes back to the 1st husband, the nikaah will be valid with the 1st husband. How is that possible? If something that is Haram still be counted?


A: There are numerous examples for this that you have quoted. To eat pork is haraam, but if someone does his iftaar with pork we will say that the iftaar is done though what he has done is haraam.

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