Sexual relation with a woman you divorced (and is permissible for you to take back) counts as taking her back


If a man divorced his wife with a divorce which still allows him to take her back again.

Is it permissible for him to live with her and have sexual relations with her?


If he has sexual intercourse with her, then he’s taken her back, upon that which is the most correct of the statements of the people of knowledge.
