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

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

> the first husband.
