Asalam aleikoum , how can a Muslim man divorce his wife ( what does he have to say and how many times ) and is there a way for him to void the divorce ? Last question is how soon after being divorced can a woman remarry ? JazakAllah khayran .

الجواب حامداومصليا

Divorce can be given by word or by writing. If one wishes to divorce his wife then he may pronounce the words of divorce directed to his wife once. This will constitute Talaq-e Raj'i. The woman will begin her Iddah from this point. She will complete her Iddah of three menstrual cycles. If the husband wishes to revoke the divorce then he may do so within the Iddah period. Once the Iddah period is over then the woman is free to marry another person.

And Allah knows best.
