Marrying before the ending of idda after taking pregnancy test

بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم


A divorcee while she was in her ‘Idda and before completing the three Quruu’ (three menstruation cycles), did a pregnancy test which stated that she wasn’t pregnant. She then got married under the pretext that she wasn’t pregnant. What’s the validity of this marriage?


It’s not valid, as she doesn’t cease being subject to her first husband for as long as the ‘Idda period hasn’t come to an end, which is three Quruu’.
