Can I remarry my wife after divorce in Islam?

Can I remarry my wife after the divorce? I have seen many such cases of divorce.

Where after the divorce took place the husband became quite interested in remarrying the wife.

If they had such interest before the divorce, then perhaps the divorce would not have taken place between them.

But what is the reason for the increase in love between them after divorce? There is room for doubt as to what the devil is doing here.

One person came to our organization last year. He divorced his wife about fifteen years ago.

Fifteen years later, he wants to marry her again. He wanted to know if there was any way he could remarry his wife.

I asked him why he wanted to marry his ex-wife after so many years.

He said one of his daughters was suitable for marriage. But not getting good pots. After the proposal came, the potter left after hearing that the girl’s mother had been divorced by her father.

So he wants to marry his ex-wife again. Even Halala is willing to get married.

We were quite surprised to hear him. How much stupidity exists in society with divorce and related issues?

In today’s blog, we are discussing whether you can remarry your wife after divorce.

How do Rajayat after divorce?

The rule of divorce in Islam is to divorce three times in three months (during menstruation and sexual intercourse).

There is no need to remarry if the first divorce takes place within three months.

Rajat means expressing the desire to keep the marital relationship going through verbal actions such as intercourse with the wife or kissing or pressing.

In this case, they will be able to start a family without remarrying. However, the husband will have the right to only two divorces.

In the same way, there will be an opportunity to return (return) within three months after the second divorce.

Document for rajayat

In the Holy Quran, Allah Ta’ala says –

‘(Royal) Divorce twice (can be granted). Then (if you want to keep it) keep it in a good way or say goodbye fairly. (Surat al-Baqara, 229)

(After two divorces) If she divorces a third time, then this wife will not be halal for her until she is married to another husband. ‘(Surat al-Baqara, 229)

Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) after divorcing his wife during menstruation informed Umar (may Allah be pleased him) to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him).

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

‘You instruct him to rule (take back) his wife.

Then wait until the woman (who is having an ongoing menstrual period) becomes pure.

After that, if the woman becomes pure after spending the second menstrual period, she can divorce him before touching him.

This is the waiting period that Allah has commanded. ‘(Bukhari-5251)

From the above verses and hadiths, it is clear that a husband has the right to Raja-at after divorcing his wife.

After the first or second divorce, the husband can maintain the marital relationship with his wife through a three-month raja-at if he so desires.

In this case, there is no need to remarry. Without Aqad, the marital relationship will be maintained only by Rajaat.

When to remarry

If three months have elapsed after giving one or two divorces. If Rajaat does not come inside at this time, then the lock will become baying.

If three months have elapsed since one divorce, then one divorce will be Baina.

And if three months have passed after the two divorces, then the two divorces will be Baina.

Divorce does not mean divorce. That is, after such a divorce, the husband will separate the relationship with the wife.

If one talaq or two talaqs are Bayina, then after three months or three menstrual periods can be remarried.

In this case, the divorced wife does not need to marry the second husband and get a divorce from him.

When can not be married?

If a husband divorces his wife for the third time, then there will be no chance of reign, but there will be no chance of remarriage after three months.

However, after three divorces, if the second man marries the wife and the second husband also divorces, the first husband can remarry.

In the Holy Quran, Allah Ta’ala says –

(After two divorces) If she divorces a third time, then this wife will not be halal for her until she is married to another husband. ‘(Surat al-Baqara, 229)

This type of marriage is called Halala marriage. Halala means halal marriage for the first husband.

In this case, there are three things to keep in mind

  1. The second husband must voluntarily marry the divorced wife and divorce. Halala will not work if it is an impure form of marriage.
  2. Divorce must take place after intercourse with the second husband. Even if it is for a moment.
  3. The first husband has to get married three months after the second husband divorces.

An impure form of halal marriage

India has a misconception about Halala marriage. After divorcing a wife, the first husband wants to marry her again.

In this case, on the advice of a village judge, he hires a man and marries his divorced wife.

The tenant then divorced the married woman after spending a couple of days with her. Then the first husband remarried the woman.

This is the impure form of Halala marriage. I am discussing below the provisions of this type of marriage in Islam.

If a man does not have the intention of marriage in his mind but marries a divorced woman to make it halal for his first husband, then his marriage will not be valid.

If he has intercourse with that woman after this marriage, it will be Zina, and it will not be halal for him to marry her for the first husband after he has divorced her.

Imam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Translation – If a divorced woman marries to make it halal for her first husband, then this marriage will be haraam.

Bin Baz – may Allah have mercy on him – said,

Translation: If the second husband intends to make the divorced wife lawful for the first husband, then her marriage will be annulled.

She will be cursed by this marriage. Because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) cursed both the one who makes it lawful and the one for whom it is made lawful.
