Hadith About Divorce During Pregnancy

As for the hadith about divorce during pregnancy what I mean is as follows:

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا : أَنَّهُ طَلَّقَ امْرَأَتَهُ وَهِيَ حَائِضٌ عَلَى عَهْدِ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ [تَطْلِيْقَةً وَاحِدَةً] ، فَسَأَلَ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَنْ ذَلِكَ ، (فَتَغَيَّظَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ثُمَّ) قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : (مُرْهُ فَلْيُرَاجِعْهَا ، ثُمَّ لْيُمْسِكْهَا حَتَّى تَطْهُرَ، ثُمَّ تَحِيْضَ ، ثُمَّ تَطْهُرَ ، ثُمَّ إِنْ شَاءَ أَمْسَكَ بَعْدُ ، وَإِنْ شَاءَ طَلَّقَ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَمَسَّ ، فَتِلْكَ الْعُدَّةُ الَّتِيْ أَمَرَ اللهُ أَنْ تُطَلَّقَ لَهَا النِّسَاءُ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ . وَفِيْ رِوَايَةٍ لِمُسْلِمٍ قَالَ : مُرْهُ فَلْيُرَاجِعْهَا ، ثُمَّ لْيُطَلِّقْهَا طَاهِرًا أَوْ حَامِلًا

From Abdullah ibn Umar radiyallahu anhuma, that he had divorced his wife when shewas menstruating during the time of Allah’s Messenger (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam (divorced one). Umar bin Khattab radliyallahu anhu then asked the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) salallahu alayhi wa sallam about it, (Allah’s messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then got angry). Then Allah’s Messenger said, “Tell him to return to his wife (cancel divorce), then tell him to maintain her until she is pure (ends menstruation), then she has a second period, then she is pure (ends menstruation) second). Then if after that he wants to defend her, then he may defend her. If he wants to divorce her, then he may divorce her. Those are the rules about divorcing wives that Allah has commanded.” This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim. In a Muslim narration it is explained (another hadith editor), “Tell him to return to his wife and then divorce her in a holy state or while pregnant.”

In the hadith it is explained that Abdullah bin Umar, son of Umar bin Khattab, divorced his wife who was menstruating. Umar bin Khattab then asked the Prophet Muhammad about it. Then the Prophet Muhammad ordered Abdullah bin Umar to cancel the divorce because his wife was menstruating. If Abdullah bin Umar wants to give his wife a divorce, then he can divorce his wife when she is pregnant or not menstruating.

So, specifically, I want to say that “you can give divorce during pregnancy.”

That’s a brief explanation of “can you give divorce during pregnancy in Islam?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
