Effectiveness of the innovated divorce

Q 2: Does the innovated divorce count? Is it considered a single or triple divorce?

A: Innovated divorce takes several forms. It includes that a husband divorces his wife during her menstrual or postpartum period or during her period of Tuhr (period of ritual purity) in which he had intercourse with her. According to the correct opinion of scholars, these forms of divorce are not effective. Another form of innovated divorce is triple divorce (three simultaneous pronouncements of divorce). This divorce is effective according to the correct opinion of scholars and it counts as one single divorce. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
