My husband divorced me about 2 months ago. We have been discussing and he expressed the wish of taking me back. During our divorce we agreed with the sheikh of our local community that he will pay me a certain amount for the divorce. And he did: He paid it all at once, a week after the divorce.
This money he paid was supposed to cover my expenses during the iddah as I was no longer living in his house and I have loans etc.
I have already had 2 menstrual periods and the last one will come in about 3 weeks. If he decided to take me back, should I return the money to him? If yes, how the amount should be calculated?
