One important thing about the right time to give talaq that I want to explain is that a good talaq is a talaq that fulfills all the talaq rules or conditions for talaq. Therefore, you must understand all of this if you want to understand “when is talaq allowed in Islam?”.

So, firstly, I will explain the rules of talaq in Islam or the conditions of talaq in Islam.

Rules of Talaq in Islam

In simple terms, the rules of talaq in Islam or the terms of talaq in Islam are as follows:

One: the husband who gave the talaq was mature, not forced, and conscious.

The first rule of talaq or the first requirement of talaq is that the husband who gives talaq is baligh (adult), is not forced to do talaq, and is aware that it is talaq. In other words, if your husband is immature, then he cannot give you talaq. If your husband is forced or unconscious, then the talaq is invalid, unless the court is forcing it.

Two: the divorced wife in a chaste condition (not during haid) and not after sex.

The second rule of talaq or the second condition of talaq is that the divorced wife is in a pure condition and not after sex. In other words, if you are in an impure condition, such as if you are menstruating or postpartum, or if you have had sex with your husband, then talaq is valid but it is haram: your husband should not give you talaq if you are menstruating, postpartum, or after sex.

We can find an explanation that Islam strictly forbids a husband from giving talaq to his wife who is menstruating in the hadith below:

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 talaq), 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.”

Now I want to give you a specific answer to the question “when is talaq allowed in Islam?”. So, if we have understood some of the explanations in the paragraphs above, then we can conclude that talaq is permissible in Islam when all the rules of talaq or all the conditions of talaq are met. That’s the answer.

That is a brief explanation of “when is talaq allowed in Islam?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
