Types of Divorce
As-Salamu `alaykum. I have read your fatwa " Ruling on Triple Divorce ," where I saw that `Umar ibn Al-Kattab opposed and contradicted the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). How could `Umar offer ijtihad and contradict the Prophet's teachings and cause division among Muslims? `Umar regarded triple divorce as three (separate) divorces, whereas the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) himself regarded it as one divorce.Pleased, comment on the above in the light of the following two narrations:1. Once the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was informed about a man who had pronounced three divorces at one time. He got up in anger, saying: "Is sport being made of the Book of Allah while I am (yet) among you?" (An-Nasa'i)2. Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the (p ronouncement) of three divorces during the lifetime of Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) and that of Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) and two years of the caliphate of `Umar ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) was treated as once. But `Umar ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "Verily the people have begun to hasten in the matter in which they are required to observe respite. So if we had imposed this upon them (that is, regard the divorce pronounced three times in succession as irrevocable divorce), it would have deterred them from doing so)!"
As-Salaamu `alykum! What about someone who divorced his wife by sending her an e-mail or a text message via his cellular phone? Is this divorce valid?
As-salamu `alaykum. A woman miscarried a fetus which was eight weeks. This happened following her husband's death. Is her waiting period over because of this miscarriage, or must she still have a waiting period of four months and ten days?
Dear Sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. Can I divorce my wife in absentia, in front of two witnesses by pronouncing talaq three times and in writing? Is this per missible?

A man threatened his wife saying, “If you visit so-and-so, then you are divorced!” Actually, he did not mean to divorce her, but he just wanted to strictly prevent her from visiting the person. So, if she visits the person, is the divorce valid?
Muslim scholars, As-Salamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh. I have heard about talaq mu`allaq (conditional divorce). Could you please explain to me the Islamic rules pertaining to this form of divorce? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Muslim (1480) from al-Sha?bi who said: I entered upon Faatimah bint Qays and asked her about the judgement that the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) passed concerning her, and she said that her husband divorced her irrevocably, and she said: I referred my dispute with him concerning accommodation and maintenance to the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him), and he did not give me any accommodation or maintenance, and he told me to observe my 'iddah in the house of Ibn Umm Maktoom. ? But I always heard that if a man divorces her husband she is entitled to maintenance for the idda period that is 3 months and also a maher should be paid???? In simple words if I divorce my wife, What is to be done?!?
