Nasihah (Advice): Duas of pious children – A recurring reward
Atiyyah Assa’di who was one of the Companions of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:
“The servant shall not reach the state of being among the Pious (Muttaqeen) until he leaves out those things in which there is no harm out of caution for its possible harm.” (Tirmidhi)
Question and Answer:
Q. My husband gave me one revocable Talaaq and I sat for the Iddah period of three menstrual cycles, for about four Months. It is one year later and he wants to issue me a second and third Talaaq. Can he do that?
(Question published as received)
A. In the enquired case, if after the issuance of one Talaaq-e-Rajee (revocable divorce), your husband did not reconcile with you during the Iddah period and the Iddah period terminated, then the Nikah has terminated.
As you have observed the Iddah period without your husband reconciling, his issuance of a second and third Talaaq will be invalid as the bond of Nikah does not remain between the two of you.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
