3 Times written Talaq


Asalam Alaikum Shaykhs.

I have a question regarding my sister in law. She had an argument with her husband during Ramadan and came to her parent’s home. After a month, her husband sent a “Divorce Deed” with 3 times written talaq. She did not perform iddat and I think a little more than 3 months have passed since she received the written talaq. She has signed on the “Divorce Deed” yet and recently started communicating with her ex husband. He regrets as well and wants to get back together. Question is: Did the 3 times written word talaq on 1 letter (Divorce Deed) constitute 1 or 3 talaqs? And if it constitutes 1 talaq, can she just remarry her husband without marrying someone else? Kindly reply in detail as we are very confused.

May Allah shower His blessings upon all of you and Shaykh Nazim.

Jazak Allah


Wa Alaykum Salam,

The 3 times written word talaq in the letter (Divorce Deed) constitutes 1 talaq. She can go back to her husband without marrying someone else.
