Questions and answers

Three questions asked of Imami [Shi‘i] clerics: 1- whether couples who remarry each other within one month of the divorce need another contract; 2- whether the eldest son inherits the father’s belongings (Qur’an, swords, and rings); 3- whether a woman who is found to be pregnant one or two months after her divorce is entitled to alimony during the pregnancy. Answers: there is no need for a second contract if the remarriage happens before the end of ‘iddah; 2- If the set of objects are the personal property of the father they will go to the eldest son, but if they were obtained for commercial purposes, they go to all of the inheritors; no answer is given for the third question.
