Can a man reconcile with his wife after having divorced (talaq) her three times?


Someone asked Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa about remarrying the same woman after having issued three divorces [talaq] to her. 

Huzooraa, in a letter dated 8 June 2021, issued the following instruction in this regard:

“In this matter, I have already provided you with an answer from an Islamic standpoint, based on the apparent fact that you issued three divorces [talaq] as you have admitted yourself. That answer was given to you in light of the commentary of the verse:

 اَلطَّلَاقُ‭ ‬مَرَّتٰنِ

“[Such divorce may be (pronounced) twice. (Surah al-Baqarah, Ch.2: V.230)] mentioned in Tafsir-e-Saghir and Tafsir-e-Kabir by Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra. According to that, you have divorced your wife irrevocably [al-talaq al-battah].

“Thus, if your ex-wife’s parents are looking for someone else’s hand for their daughter, let them do it because in their view you have divorced their daughter irrevocably, regardless of whatever explanation you give for your actions. 

“If you think that you divorced your wife in a state of insanity and you were not conscious at that time, then decide what you think is best for you, but if you make a mistake, then you alone shall bear the burden of your sin.”
