A man granting his wife Khul` then changing their minds

Q: A woman asked for Khul` (divorce at the request of the wife in return for compensation to the husband) from her husband and was, accordingly, divorced but now both of them want to return to each other. What is the ruling on that?

A: If the reality is as mentioned; that she asked her husband for Khul` then he divorced her, if it was not a triple divorce (three simultaneous pronouncements of divorce), it is permissible for him to remarry her after concluding a new marriage contract and fulfilling all the conditions and essential elements of marriage. Also, he has to pay her a new Mahr (mandatory gift to a bride from her groom). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
