Irrevocable (Baa’in) and revocable (Rij’e) divorce


2531. Irrevocable (Baa’in) divorce means that after the divorce, the husband is not entitled to take back his wife, that is, he is not entitled to take her as his wife without Nikah. This divorce is of five kinds, namely:

1. The divorce of a woman who has not completed nine years of age.
2. The divorce of a woman who is in menopause.
3. The divorce of a woman whose husband has not had sexual intercourse with her after their marriage.
4. The third divorce of a woman who has been divorced three times.
5. The divorce called Khul’a and Mubarat;

Rules pertaining to these kinds of divorces will be detailed later. Divorces other than these are revocable (Rij’e), in the sense that as long as the wife is observing ‘Iddah her husband can take her back.


2532. When a person has given revocable divorce to his wife, it is Haraam for him to expel her out of the house in which she was residing at the time of divorce. However, in certain cases which are mentioned in the more detailed books, like, when she has committed fornication or adultery there is no harm in expelling her. Also, it is Haraam for the wife to go out of the house unnecessarily.
