My husband and I have been married since last year July. During this time we have had a tumultuous relationship whereby he verbally gave me talaaq on more than three different occasions. We assumed it was said out of anger and no other processes where taken like the 3 month waiting period or witnesses to say we tried reconciling. I am currently 4 months pregnant and we do not wish to be divorced, for the baby’s sake of course and because we wish to have a life together. We have consulted two moulanas and they say our marriage was over with the first talaq given. My question is if the proper process for idaah or that waiting period for reconciliation was not given to us how can our divorce be valid (I do know about the viewpoint that if its said out of anger it is not accepted and we do take how serious the words are, we have both made mistakes). Is there any way forward for us, can he ask for “ruju” because we were not given  information on the proper process. We have been together since, but my husband is no longer in the house due to the moulana saying its haram. For our future and the baby is there a way to reconcile? We do not want to be divorced and even after the talaq was verbally said in anger we would reconcile. Please help me with information and a way forward?

Why is there no iddat after committing zina?

Answered by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Why is the waiting period not obligatory after committing fornication? A: In matters of Deen we all depend on the Qur’aan, Hadeeth and the statements of the Fuqahaa. According to the Fuqaha, a woman will only sit in iddat after the demise of her husband or after being divorced. A woman will not sit in iddat after committing zina. Hence… read more »
