Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


A verbal divorce issued by a person under force is valid. The ruling of

> reconciliation depends on the type of divorce issued by the husband. If the

> husband issued a talaaq raji (revocable divorce), then the wife may return

> to the husband in her idat without a new nikah. If the divorce was a talaaq

> baa’in (irrevocable divorce) a new nikah would be compulsory. However, there

> would be no need for the wife to marry another person. And if the husband

> issued three talaaqs or one mughladha (a permanently irrevocable divorce)

> then upon completion of her idat and remarrying, the wife may return back to

> the first husband.


> الدر المختار – (ج 3 / ص 235 سعيد)

> (ويقع طلاق كل زوج بالغ عاقل) ولو تقديرا.

> بدائع، ليدخل السكران (ولو عبدا أو مكرها) فإن طلاقه صحيح لا إقراره بالطلاق


> حاشية الشلبي تبيين الحقائق شرح كنز الدقائق – (ج 3 / ص34 دار الكتب العلمية)

> ( قوله في المتن : ولو مكرها وسكران ) ولا خلاف بين أصحابنا في وقوع طلاق

> المكره كذا قال الأتقاني رحمه الله قال في الهداية


> البحر الرائق شرح كنز الدقائق – (ج 3 / ص245 رشيدية)

> قوله : ( ولو مكرها ) أي ولو كان الزوج مكرها على إنشاء الطلاق
