Divorce during confinement
  • Question:

    Can a man pronounce divorce while the wife is menstruating or when she is in confinement period after the birth of a child?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    This is not an appropriate time for a husband to execute a divorce to his wife, however if a divorce is uttered during that period, it will be considered executed according majority scholars of Islamic jurisprudence of the four schools of fiqh.

    And Allah knows best.
