Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salam to all,

I have recently joined this forum and would like to ask few questions from my community members,

I got married and then i figure out that my wife is not willing to consummate the marriage and was making excuses so i waited for more than a month and then decided to divorce my wife and completed the process in-front of 2 witness and one religious scholar.

  1. Now, the wife has to observe the iddat period of 3 months or not?
  2. I have already returned personal belongings to my wife , how do we resolve the issue of Jewelry items given to my wife as marriage symbols and i got the ring and watch. also in Salami i got cash amount and other gift items, what is the ruling of our Marajeh on the items to be returned ?? How do i return the cash amount which is spend on shopping for my wife ?
  3. Also how much amount of Mehr i need to pay ? Half or Full.

I hope our members are knowledgeable enough and will reply according to our Marajeh's rulings.

2520. If a wife who has completed nine years of her age and is not in menopause, is divorced by her husband after sexual intercourse, it is necessary for her to observe the waiting period of divorce. The waiting period of a free woman is that after her husband divorces her during her Pak period, she should wait till she sees Haidh twice and becomes Pak. Thereafter, as soon as she sees Haidh for the third time, her waiting period will be over and she can marry again. If, however, a husband divorces his wife before having sexual intercourse with her, there is no waiting period for her and she can marry another man immediately after being divorced, except if she finds traces of her husband's semen in her private part, then she should observe Iddah.

3. Half

Hey Mehdi;


Heres my take on it (and I reiterate "take")... I think you need to ask yourself what you'd loose if you gave it all to her. At a wedding (Khoja weddings) jewellery gifts are ordinarily given to the woman because she is the woman (in the sense that she'd wear them). The other thing you need to consider is her future (one can argue that's not your problem!!) how will she support herself, where will she go etc etc. 

The only reason I say this is because I walked away with nothing and as much as it was wholly my choice... As a lone woman it would've been helpful....

Anyway I'm sure it's all sorted out by now... If not I hope I've helped :)
