Fatwa ID: 05247
Answered by: Alimah Fatima Begum
My husband issued me one Talaq Bain. If we want to now reconcile is it necessary for the new nikah to be performed during the iddah or is it sufficient for him to say “I take you back”?
In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Talaq Bain terminates the marriage. In order to reconcile, the couple must renew the nikah. This can be done either during the iddah period or after its expiry. (Mukhtasarul Qudoori Chapter of Reconciling, Pg 168- Qadeemi Kutub Khana)
In the case of Talaq Bain, it is not sufficient to say ‘I take you back.’ This only applies to Talaq Raj’ee.
Only Allah knows best.
