Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed Bin Mohamed Umarji

 

Question:

 

A man uttered 2 Talaqs to his wife. He then said to her You are still my wife until I give you the 3rd. Will this statement qualify as him having made Rujoo’?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

Rujoo is only permissible in the case of a Talaq Rajee’ (unambiguous divorce).1

 

The words of Ruju should clearly indicate Rujoo’.2 The words “You are still my wife” does indicate Rujoo’.
