Ask The Imam Question and Answer

758 If a husband divorces his wife when she is pregnant does divorce happen? Or if a man makes Nikah with a pregnant woman what is the rule? Jazakallah
The divorce is valid from a husband even if the wife is pregnant, but the Idaat (restrictive period) for the woman would end when the child is born. After the woman has completed her Idaat she may remarry.

Ulema have difference of opinion on marriage with a pregnant woman. According to our opinion a Nikah can be performed with a pregnant woman, as long as she was not divorced from previous husband during the pregnancy. If she is pregnant otherwise then she can have Nikah done.
