My wife and I were living separately for about nine months after a dispute between us. Now we have reconciled with each other. Is it permissible for us to start cohabiting again, or we are required to do something else?
الجواب باسم ملهم الصواب
- As long as a person does not divorce his wife, she is his wife – according to Islamic teachings, even if they live separately in two different houses.
- Therefore, in your case, there is no need to do anything else. You are simply permitted to cohabit.
Only Allah knows best.
