waiting period of a menopausal woman


no.1354 for the year 2006 which includes the following:

I divorced my wife, a British Muslim, with a revocable divorce on 18 February 2006 and I did not take her back until now. She is elderly and menopausal. What is the legal ruling for this?


    If the case is as mentioned in the question, and the husband made a one or twofold pronouncement of divorce and the waiting period ended [baynuna sughra], he cannot take back his wife except with her consent and a new marriage contract.

    The waiting period for a menopausal woman is three months which have expired.

Allah Almighty knows best.
