Conditional Talaaq on contact with ex-husband

 

Nasihah (Advice): A man with a woman alone and whilst travelling

 

Ibn Abbaas Radhiyallahu Anhuma says: “I heard Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam delivering a sermon saying: “No man should be alone with a woman except when there is a Mahram with her, and a woman should not undertake a journey except with a Mahram” (Muslim)

 

Note: A Mahram is a person that one cannot marry.

Question and Answer:

 

  1. My ex-husband wants to contact me and my husband said to me that if I call, message or contact him through social media, I am divorced. Does this effect my marriage in any way?

 

  1. A.The statement, “if you call, message or contact him (ex-husband) through social media, you are divorced” of a husband to his wife constitutes a conditional divorce (At-Talaaqul Muallaq). Accordingly, if you call, message or contact your ex-husband through social media, one revocable divorce (At-Talaaqur-Raj’ee) will take place.

 

In any case, if there is a need for your ex-husband to contact you, he may do so by contacting your husband. More so, there should be no contact between you and your ex-husband as he is now a non-Mahram (stranger) to you.
