Ask an Alim

I asked my husband for divorce, now after 4 years we want to reconcile….



If I ask my husband to separate 3 times is it considered khula? I was living in a different country at the time and could not return to the original country where our Nikkah was to file for separation myself. On the papers he even wrote that he is doing this on my request.

This happened about 4 years ago and we would like to reconcile.

Thanks for your help in advanced.

Thank you for your Question

The following is according to the Shia sect.
For a divorce to be correct, it has to have the following conditions:
1- You have to have two believing adults as your witness
2- The woman has to be clean of her menstrual period and also shouldn’t be pregnant
3- Proper Arabic words need to be uttered for the act to take place.
