Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

I divorced my wife with three talaqs without intention due to anger.

What possible solution I have to retain back my wife?

If a man divorces his wife in the state of anger with words that are explicitly used for ṭalāq (divorce), his wife will now become mugal’lazah (irrevocably ḥarām upon you until she marries another man and has intercourse).[1]

If her new marriage breaks apart, after her new husband had intercourse with her, you may marry her again.


Only Allah Ta’ala knows best
