Divorcing the wife twice and taking her back after the end of her `Iddah

Q 2: I divorced my wife twice and after she completed her `Iddah (woman's prescribed waiting period after divorce), I remarried her. Do the two times of Talaq (divorce pronounced by a husband) still count or are they annulled by concluding a new marriage contract?

(Part No. 20; Page No. 159)  A: The two times of Talaq are counted, even if you have remarried your wife with a new marriage contract after the completion of her `Iddah. There only remains one more time of Talaq for you. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
