Understanding Khula: My Journey to Reconciliation with My Wife

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My wife got a separation from me through court and that is khula. No divorce word is mentioned. I did not take mahar amount from her. She also took my 3 million rupees and did not give me back at that time and not yet even. I love her and we have 2 daughters. Khula is done on 8th January 2018. I am giving her all amount of her expenses also. After two months we had intercourse with an intention to live together again and I promised her that nothing will go wrong by the grace of Allah. Is her khula valid after all this? What do I do to bring her back?


A: If you accepted the khula, then the khula is valid and an irrevocable talaaq had taken place. Having relations with her was impermissible. You both should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for committing this major sin. If you both wish to reunite, then a new nikaah will have to be performed with a separate mahr.

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