Nikah before Iddat is Illegal

Contract of Nikah before the completion of Iddat period is illegal according to Islamic law. It is also illegal according to Pakistani Law. Iddat is three months time once talaq is pronounced to a wife by her husband.

In case of Khula it is considered equal to single talaq. Once decree of Khula is passed the wife getting Khula has to wait for three months before contracting second marriage. According to Pakistani law such lady has to complete the process of taking talaq certificate also before contracting second marriage.

If a wife contracts a second marriage before the completion of period of Iddat then it is considered Nikah over Nikah and it is an offence punishable under the law. If any such marriage happens by mistake then the best remedy against such a marriage is re-marriage with the second husband after the completion of process under section 7 of MFLO and after the completition of period of Iddat.
