Answered by: Alimah Sumeyye Sofu
My question is if a person uses kinayah words for divorce and uses kinayah words for divorce again in one sitting is this counted as one divorce or two divorces.
I have been told that if a person uses kinayah words then one talaaq bain will occur and any other divorces given after this will not count as the wife will be a complete stranger and it will be invalid and in order to get back together you will have to renew your nikkah.

If a person uses kinayah words twice one after another to his wife, then only one Talaq Baain (irrevocable divorce) will occur. The second kinayah word will be considered futile. (Raddul Muhtar)
Only Allah knows best.
