Divorce, also known as dissolution of marriage, is the process of terminating a marriage or marital union. Divorce usually entails the canceling or reorganizing of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage, thus dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law of the particular country or state. Divorce laws vary considerably around the world, but in most countries divorce requires the sanction of a court or other authority in a legal process, which may involve issues of distribution of property, child custody, alimony (spousal support), child visitation / access, parenting time, child support, and division of debt.
Intimate acts which do not include sexual intercourse do not mean that the marriage has been consummated. Marriage is consummated when sexual intercourse takes place. If there was no sexual intercourse, there will be no Iddah after divorce. Obviously you will then be entitled of half of the agreed Mahr, while if marriage was consummated, you will be entitled to the full Mahr.
If the marriage has not been consummated, there will be no 'iddah for divorce and the wife will be entitled to half the mahr.
Consummating means sexual intercourse, and so there would be 'iddah if (1) there is intercourse, or (2) the husband's seminal fluid (somehow) entered the wife's vagina.
And Allah knows best.
Because the marriage was consummated, you would need to observe 'iddah of divorce. As for informing elders, that would be at your discretion.
And Allah knows best.
The first husband must redo the Islamic divorce, making sure all the requirements are met, and it would be best that he authorises a scholar to conduct the divorce on his behalf.
As for the woman, although her temporary marriage was not sinful, it could be that she is not permitted to marry or be with that second man she was with in the temporary marriage. This is something that she must refer to her Marja' taqleed about.
And Allah knows best
Thank you for your question. As long as the marriage contract was pronounced correctly with all of its conditions and the divorce was also performed correctly the marriage is valid even if this was not the most ethical path.
May you always be successful.
Thank you for your question. One of the conditions of a correct pronouncement of the divorce formula is that it should not be under duress, otherwise it is invalid.
May you always be successful
Mahr is the right of the wife due on the husband for her whether they are living together or divorced. No doubt, Muslim man is responsible to give the full Mahr to his wife when ever she asks. This matter has nothing to do with divorce as it is a separate duty on the husband who believes in Allah (SWT). Not giving the Mahr to the wife is a major sin which leads to hellfire.
This narration is not authentic because some of the narrators like (Mohammad Ibn Ziyad Ibn Easa) is unknown, hence the narration is not authentic at all.
Such words of Talaq have no value nor any effect on your marriage bond. No doubt, it is wrong to say that but as it does not meet the conditions of Talaq, it has no value. Your marriage remains with out any change.
He needs to repent and decide not to commit such crime again and seek forgiveness from Allah (SWT) but he does not need to divorce his wife.
Committing such major sin is strongly forbidden and condemned and the knowledge or no knowledge of his wife does not change the rule.
As soon as the Iddah period (around three months or three menstrual periods) is over, she is allowed to marry another man, whether permanent or temporary marriage.
Divorced wife is no ore a wife after passing the Iddah (Waiting period). Same for the husband who divorced his wife, he is no more a husband for her.
In Paradise, Allah (SWT) grants the best to the believers. The best husband will be given to the believing woman and the best wife will be given for the man. Allah (SWT) will remove all negative things from the believers in Paradise.
