QUESTION

If a woman is granted a khula', can she then remarry her ex-husband without first marrying and divorcing another man?

ANSWER by Shaykh Muhammad 'Umar Baazmool, instructor at Umm Al-Quraa University in Makkah

A khula', a woman's requesting and being granted a divorce from her husband, according to the scholars, is counted as one divorce, and her 'iddah (period of post-divorce waiting) for it is one menstrual cycle.

So, if she has already been divorced twice, then this khula' counts as the third divorce. Thus, she may not remarry him until she marries (and divorces) someone else.

And If this khula' has not been preceded by any other divorces, or if it has been preceded by only one divorce, then she may remarry her ex-husband without having married another man first, and Allaah knows best.
