Ba'in divorce (Arabic: الطلاق البائن) or Irrevocable divorce is a type of divorce in which the man cannot return to the woman; i.e. he cannot make her his wife again without reciting the marriage formula. This type of divorce is against revocable divorce in which, during the 'idda period, the man can return to the wife. Six forms of divorce are ba'in [irrevocable] including divorce of a woman who has not had a sexual intercourse with after marriage, divorcing a woman after her menopause and khul' and mubarat divorces. During the 'idda period after ba'in divorce, the woman is not mahram to the man.


Main article: Divorce

Lifting the bond of marriage is called divorce. Like marriage, divorce takes place with reciting the marriage formula, but contrary to marriage, it is among unilateral contracts and it is carried out only by the man. In Islam, divorce is legitimate and permissible; but, according to hadiths, it is the most disapproved permissible act before God.

Definition of Ba'in Divorce

Ba'in divorce is a kind of divorce in which the man cannot return to the woman. In ba'in divorce, whether or not the woman is in an 'idda period, the man is not permitted to return to her. This type of divorce is against rij'i divorce in which the man can return during the 'idda period.

Types of Ba'in Divorce

Divorces below are considered as ba'in:


In ba'in divorce, the woman is not mahram to the man during her 'idda period. The rules of matrimony such as the obligation of deferring to the husband, inheriting the spouses from each other, prohibition of leaving the house without the husband's permission and the obligation of paying the maintenance do not apply to ba'in divorce. However, if the woman is pregnant [at the time of divorce], the man has the obligation to pay her maintenance until delivering the baby.
