    What is Ghamidi Sahab opinion about divorce given during menstruation or during the period of purity when you had an intercourse with your wife. There are some scholars who says it doesn’t take effect as it was against the procedure mentioned in Quran. I wanna know what is Ghamidi Sahab opinion on this?

    If a husband divorces his wife during her menstrual period, or divorces her after he has had contact with her in her period of purity then:

    …”an Islamic government can ask the husband to revoke his decision and carry it out in the proper manner at the proper time. The Prophet (sws) in his own times dealt with the case of ‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Umar (rta) in a similar manner. When he was told that ‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Umar (rta) had divorced his wife during her menstrual cycle, he was really annoyed and remarked:

    مرة فَلْيُرَاجِعْهَا ثُمَّ لِيُمْسِكْهَا حتى تَطْهُرَ ثُمَّ تَحِيضَ ثُمَّ تَطْهُرَ ثُمَّ إن شَاءَ أَمْسَكَ بَعْدُ وَإِنْ شَاءَ طَلَّقَ قبل أَنْ يَمَسَّ فَتِلْكَ الْعِدَّةُ التي أَمَرَ الله أَنْ تُطَلَّقَ لها النِّسَاءُ

    Ask him to take her back and keep her in wedlock until she is through with her menstrual cycle and then once again passes through this cycle and then is through with it. After this, he can either detain her [in wedlock] or divorce her before having sexual intercourse with her. Because it is this beginning of the iddat keeping regard of which the Almighty has directed [believers] to divorce their wives.”…
