Ask an Alim

I recently got a divorce where my husband uttered the words “I give you Talaq Bain”

Q:

Salaam, I recently got a divorce where my husband uttered the words “I give you Talaq Bain” he only said it once and from my understanding this means we are not in nikkah. I just wanted to know the ruling on getting back together? As he said it once what is the ruling on this or do I become haraam for him once he has said this? Jazakallah

A:

Waalaykum Salam,

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.

Best wishes
