Prophet peace be upon him said.
Abu Dawud narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Allah has cursed the muhallil and the muhallallahu".
The muhallilis the one who marries a woman and divorces her so that she can return to her first husband, and the muhallallahuis the first husband.
IbnMajah narrated from `Uqbah ibn `Aamir that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Shall I not tell you of a borrowed billy-goat?” They said, Yes, O Messenger of Allah. He said, “He is al-muhallil. May Allah curse al-muhalliland al-muhallal lahu.”
Which means that Doing Halala is harram in Islam but on the other hand when i found this hadith,
Dawud :: Book 12 : Hadith 2302
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) was asked about a man who divorced his wife three times, and she married another who entered upon her, but divorced her before having intercourse with her, whether she was lawful for the former husband. She said: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) replied: She is not lawful for the first (husband) until she tastes the honey of the other husband and he tastes her honey.
Doesnt it mean these are contradictory that at one side prophet is cursing and other side he is allowing to do marriage for the purpose of Divorce so she can consume marriage with the previous husband.
Praise be to Allaah.
There is no
contradiction between these hadeeths. If a man marries a woman who has
been divorced three times with the intention of making her permissible for
the first husband (tahleel marriage), this marriage is haraam and is that
which the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)
cursed the one who does it.
As for the
hadeeth about the wife of Rifaa‘ah, it does not say that ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn
al-Zubayr married her with the intention of tahleel. Rather the reports of
the hadeeth indicate that he married her and wanted to keep her, and he did
not divorce her just because she asked for a divorce. Rather she wanted to
go back to her first husband, but the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah
be upon him) explained to her that that would not be permissible for her
until the second husband consummated the marriage with her; she had said
that he had not consummated the marriage with her.
There follow some
of the versions of the hadeeth about the wife of Rifaa‘ah.
It was narrated
by al-Bukhaari (2639) and Muslim (1433) from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased
with her) that: The wife of Rifaa‘ah al-Qurazi came to the Prophet
(blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and said: I was married to
Rifaa‘ah, then he divorced me and made the divorce irrevocable. Then I
married ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn al-Zubayr. He said: “Do you want to go back to
Rifaa‘ah? No, not until you taste his (‘Abd al-Rahmaan’s) sweetness and he
tastes your sweetness.”
narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said: A man divorced
his wife three times, then another man married her and divorced her before
consummating the marriage with her. Her first husband wanted to remarry her,
and the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was asked about
that. He said: “No, not until the second husband tastes of her sweetness
what the first one tasted.”
So it does not
say in the hadeeth that ‘Abd al-Rahmaan married her with the intention of
tahleel (making her permissible for her first husband). Rather she is the
one who wanted to go back to her first husband, and the fact that this
intention was present on her part does not make the marriage a tahleel
marriage, because the power of divorce was not in her hand.
Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) permitted her to go back
to her first husband if the second husband had intercourse with her, after
it became clear to him that she wanted to go back to the first husband, and
it made no difference whether this desire arose after the marriage contract
was done or was present before that, this indicates that it was permissible
for her to go back to (the first husband) in either case. Usually if a woman
is comfortable with her husband then he divorces her, she may still feel
something for him in many cases; women usually dislike divorce and would
like to go back to the first husband more than they would like to live with
someone else… End quote.
Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr
(may Allah have mercy on him) said:
In the words of
the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) to the wife of
Rifaa‘ah, “Do you want to go back to Rifaa‘ah?” There is an indication that
the woman's desire to go back to her (first) husband does not affect the one
who has done the marriage contract with her, and that does not come under
the same heading as tahleel, in the case of which the one who does it
deserves to be cursed. End quote.
(may Allah have mercy on him) said:
The intention of
the wife or her guardian does not have any effect; rather what counts is the
intention of the second husband. If he intends to make it permissible for
her to go back to her first husband (tahleel), then he is muhallil and
deserves to be cursed, as does the husband who divorced her, if she goes
back to him by means of this invalid marriage. But if neither the second
husband nor the first husband was aware of what was in the mind of the woman
or her guardian of the intention of tahleel, that does not affect the
marriage contract at all. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon
him) was aware that the wife of Rifaa‘ah wanted to go back to him and he did
not make that the reason to prevent her going back to him; rather what
prevented her going back to him was the fact that the second husband had not
had intercourse with her, so he said, “not until you taste his sweetness and
he tastes your sweetness.” End quote.
And Allah knows
