Getting another Talaq while in Iddah

Fatwa ID: 03713

Answered by: Alimah Sabrina al-Faarsiyyah



A husband divorces his wife and she then starts her iddah. They don’t reconcile and then he gives her another divorce again in this iddah, is this type of divorce valid?

It is valid. In fact, it is better for a husband who wants to give more than one divorce to his wife, that he gives it in intervals and not all at once.[1]
