Divorce/Talaq Over The Phone

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

As per the situation described in your question, by issuing a divorce over the phone, one Talaq-e-Raj’ai(revocable divorce) has taken effect. During the period of ‘Iddah, the husband can reconcile with the wife (i.e. take her back) without the need of performing a new Nikah.
