Divorce and Method of Halalah

As'salaam Walaikum,

I had asked a question regarding a divorce situation and you had emailed me back a document that stated the husband and wife were haram for each other until they completed sharia halalah. My question is, what is sharia halalah and how is it completed?
Thank you.

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

In order to perform Shar‘ai Halalah the woman will have to marry another man after completing her period of ‘iddah without the intention or putting forth any condition to get a divorce from him.

After the consummation, if this marriage ends through divorce or the death of the husband then after the completion of the period of ‘iddah, she can marry her first husband again.

واللہ اعلم  بالصواب
