Counting the divorce after which the husband takes back his wife

Q 1: What should a person do if he divorces his wife once or twice and wants to return to her? If it is permissible for him to return to her, will there be three times of divorce or one time left?

A: If the husband returns to his wife whom he has divorced once or twice before, he returns to her with the number of times of divorce left. So she will be divorced twice and will have one time of divorce left. (Part No. 20; Page No. 163) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
