Q: My husband and I decided to get divorced. We are also in the business together (I work for him). I recently moved out. I would like to know:-

1. What happens next? When does the divorce apply?
2. Does he still have to maintain me during my iddat period whilst I am working?

A:
The divorce comes into effect from the time it is issued.

You are not allowed to work during the Iddat period. He has to maintain you during your Iddat.

Asking for a Divorce

E-mail Print PDF

Q: What should I do if I ask my husband a divorce and he says I am free. Can I do anything ?

A:
If what you are saying is exactly the true and proper situation and that you asked your husband for a divorce and he answered saying that you are free, then that will be counted as one baain talaaq. You are now in iddat. You can reconcile by making a new nikah in the iddat or after the iddat. Once the iddat ends, the nikah is broken. If a new nikah is made in the iddat then the iddat falls away.
