Leaving husband’s house in iddah

Home / Divorce / Leaving husband’s house in iddah


When a husband divorces his wife once and she leaves the home during period of iddah, is she divorced? If her husband divorced her only once and the iddah period has lapsed do they have a chance to remarry?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Yes, if the iddah period passed then she is divorced, and she is sinful because she left his house during iddah. They can still remarry as this is the first divorce, but they both need to think if they will be able to be pious to Allah in their marriage or not. They need to take admonishment from what happened and not to rush again in divorce.
