Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

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

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


The general rulings regarding talaq/khula are as follows:

  1. If the husband has given the wife talaq raj’ee, then he will have the option to take her back within her iddat without a need of performing a new nikah.

  1. If the husband has given the wife talaq ba’in or the husband gave talaq raj’ee but the iddat has expired, then the husband and wife will have to re-perform the nikah in order remain together.

  1. If the husband had given the wife three talaqs, then the only method to re-concile is halalaHalala means the wife marries another man and consummates the marriage.  Thereafter, the second husband gives her talaq and she waits for the iddat to expire.  After the expiration of the iddat, it will be permissible for her to marry the former husband.

You stated that your sister received khula’ from her husband.  Khula’ equates to one talaq ba’in.  If only khula’ took place and three talaqs were not given by the husband, your sister will only have to re-perform the nikah in order to reunite with her former husband.  Halala will not be necessary.
