Actually all state-related paper work is for recording events for further civil rights (like Children attribution, Nafaqa, Mot'a,..). It has nothing to do with the Islamic marriage itself. Here's a considerable fatwa (in Arabic) that permits Islamic Marriage without paper work for the reason: Paper work takes too much time!

There are two parts to this question. Purely islamic view of the situation Assessing the situation from Law point of view (i.e. Pakistani Law). In Islam, a husband is not required to serve papers or go to court to divorce his wife. He simply has to utter the words "I divorce you" to his wife and divorce is done. No witnesses are required (Sunni Islam). But ...

In the Ja'fari school of fiqh, there is no iddah (of divorce) upon a girl who is non-baligh nor upon a woman who has entered menopause. The verse in Surat al-Talaq has an important clause that deserves attention - if you doubt - and in various tafasir, it is used to refer to women who have reached the age of menopause, yet the menstrual cycle is not ...

The iddah for a divorced woman is three menstrual periods if she doesn't appear to be pregnant. If the woman is no longer menstruating either because she is too old or for any other reason, then the iddah is three lunar months. The iddah for a widowed is four lunar months and 10 days if she doesn't appear to be pregnant. If she is pregnant, or discovered ...

Yes she is even not recommended to leave (one could even say it is her duty to stay) her husbands house (assuming he is the owner of course) until the end of the 'idah! And IMO any view which differs to that needs strong arguments as the Quran clearly says so. If you read the Quran you will find how talaq should be handled: Divorce is twice. Then, either ...

The ruling is that the only reason for Iddah is to clarify what is in the womb (if any). If a child is born the next day of Iddah, it ends. If some other means can indicate this clearly, that there is no child in the womb, it ends. I don't know if that was the case with Hazrat Safya (PBUH) In fact, that was the case with Safiya bint Huyai as mentioned in ...

I assume your Question is: Is it allowed for a widow in her 'iddah to be present at the nikah of her son. I've came across some fatwas allowing or forbidding it. The point is a widow during her 'iddah is allowed to go out for necessary reasons (mostly related with providing food) as scholars say. This is based on this hadith which Imam a-Shafi'i commented ...

The 'iddah for a woman who has been given talaq is clearly defined in 2:228: Divorced women remain in waiting for three periods, and it is not lawful for them to conceal what Allah has created in their wombs if they believe in Allah and the Last Day. ... This is for the case of a woman who is in the age where she can have her menses. And this 'iddah ...

According to quran, The only reason for the iddet is to clarify what is in the womb. If a child is delivered the next day of iddet then it ends. Since you did not do anything that does not change this situation then the iddet continues. The other thing to note is that would you really want to continue it since there is obviously affection between you two. ...

One of the reasons/wisdom behind keeping iddah is to protect the lineage and to be certain on the fatherhood in case of pregnancy. So, logically, one has to wait another 3 months before she can legally be eligible for other marriage.

The following verse states that there is no iddah period if no sexual relations took place. O You who have believed, when you marry believing women and then divorce them before you have touched them, then there is not for you any waiting period to count concerning them. So provide for them and give them a gracious release. (Qur'an 33:49)

As said in my comments and in my answer on Are women who are divorced after the consummation entitled to maintenance? according to the Qur'an it is recommended for a wife who has been divorced a divorce with the option of reconciliation (rij'i) to stay at her husbands home at least till the end of the 'Iddah. And it is haram for a husband to throw his wife ...

Here we need some more information. Basically and according to the information you have provided there are two major differences: If you are coming from a location close to Mecca... in that case your mother should return to her home and stay there for the rest of her 'iddah. If you are coming from far away your mother can complete her hajj (and complete ...

During Iddat women not allowed to even talk with some "Na Mehram", Even she is not allowed to see "Na Mehram".Then how can a women can be committed to someone or get engaged with someone.So this is not allowed during the time period of Iddat ,yes it is allowed after Iddat duration.

Yes, the first two divorces will count. That means if a husband divorces his wife one more time, the reconciliation cannot be made unless she marries someone else and then he can marry her again.

There is no consensus among scholars about the 'Idah of a woman who asked for Khul'a. Note that count for this waiting period only starts once the verdict is final and can't be made void! This difference comes from two different views: Is khul'a (as a separation) equal to talaq (divorce) or is it equal to faskh (declaring a marriage as invalid). Imam Ahmad ...

All the scholars agree that the iddah of a divorced woman that is pregnant ends when she gives birth because Allah says in the Quran: “And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is until they lay down their burden” (al-Talaaq 65:4) Source: Islam Q&A

This is mostly answered by: Divorced women remain in waiting for three periods ... Qur'an 2:228 Here, periods are considered menstrual cycles (see e.g. Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs). However, after giving birth it's likely menses is not taking place, where the Qur'an says it's three months: And those who no longer expect menstruation ...

According to the 4 caliphs (Abu Baker, Umar, Othman, and Ali) and majority of scholars, If you and your husband were alone in a private place and you can have intercourse in that place(house, room in a hotel, etc...) . then iddah is needed even if you didn't have any intercourse (iddah is three periods as mentioned in Surah al- Baqarah verse 228) Shafi and ...

In fact the ruling for a prisoner of war is different as you can clearly read in this Hadith and also here in Sunan abi Dawud which is also supported by same or similar narrations in al-Mustadrak of al-Hakim and Musnad al-Imam Ahmad (see also here in Arabic). So in case of a prisoner of war the 'iddah is either her first menses or if she was pregnant the ...
