A man making one pronouncement of divorce and wishing to revoke it
Q: On Sunday night, (Part No. 20; Page No. 13) 14 Sha`ban, 1402 A.H. at 2:00 am,
I had an argument with my wife and I lost my temper and uttered one pronouncement of divorce saying, "You are divorced."
After that, I drove her and my two children to my brother's home, until I would know the ruling of Shari`ah (Islamic law). Please bear in mind that she is not pregnant and is breast-feeding her child. It is worth mentioning that this was my first time to divorce her. Please advise me, may Allah reward you the best.
If the reality is as you mentioned, you have made one pronouncement of divorce, and you can revoke it as long as she is in her `Iddah (woman's prescribed waiting period after divorce). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
