    He have no rights to force you for wrongdoings. You're free to think and decide your future. I would not advise you Nikah e Halala, as it's not Nikah.

    @Saad Sheikh agree...
    The general misconception is that marrying another is a solution provided by Shariah in order for the husband and wife to get back together..... This is not correct...... The meaning of Halalah is that if the woman after being divorced and after observing her iddah (waiting period) wished to marry another man, she can do so..... This second husband on his own accord divorces her after having sexual intercourse with her then after observing the iddah, she can remarry her first husband...... (The Complete system of Divorce p.53)
    It should be borne in mind that this is not a solution provided by the Shariah...... Once three divorces are pronounced, the marriage is over and there is no getting together again......

    @Veer I totally agree..... There is no such thing as nikah halala in Islam or mentioned in the Quran. It is a word coined by Muslim men for their convenience....The opposite of the word haram, which means forbidden, is halal , that which is permissible.
    Nikah halala is a practice meant to curb the incidence of divorce, under which a man cannot remarry his former wife without her having to go through the process of (temporarily) marrying someone else, consummating it, getting divorced and observing a three-month separation period known as iddat.

    Does the Quran permit this? Absolutely not. Let us examine what the Quran has to say about it:

    “And if he has divorced her (for the third time), then she is not lawful to him afterward until (after) she marries a husband other than him. And if the latter husband divorces her (or dies), there is no blame upon the woman and her former husband for returning to each other if they think that they can keep (within) the limits of Allah. These are the limits of Allah, which He makes clear to a people who know”(Quran 2:230).

    As remarriage was encouraged, once the three-month period of iddat or waiting is complete, she could marry anyone else she wanted. These were conditions put in to protect, not exploit, women.
    Further, if this husband dies, or if she didn’t get along with him and it leads to a divorce, she is free to go back to the first husband as it is halal. This is to be of her own free will and without any conspiracy, and certainly not a marriage entered into cynically just for the purpose of an immediate divorce so that she can remarry the first husband. Such a marriage can only be called a malpractice or an innovation against the spirit of Islam.

    There are only two verses in the Quran which talk of polygamy in the Surah Nisa, verses 3 and 129.... Both are in response to a specific situation and set many conditions...... In the 7th century, when many wars were taking place, and there were many orphans and widows, verse 3 recommended that men could marry the female orphans under their care if they felt they couldn’t act equitably towards them otherwise, with the rider that if you could not treat them with equal fairness, then marry only one..... Thus polygamy was allowed only if they could treat wives equally and verse 129 clarified, “It will not be within your power to treat your wives with equal fairness, however much you may desire.” So, nowhere does the Quran give carte blanche for Muslim men to indulge in polygamy. Forgetting or ignoring the conditions the Quran laid down, men continue these practices.....

    Nikah Halala is not mentioned in the Quran, it is a practice created by men designed to circumvent the rules of Allah swt regarding marriage and divorce..... In Islam a man is only allowed to divorce his wife twice and reconcile.... The third divorce is considered final..... She then becomes off limits to him until she has married and either divorced or been widowed by someone else.....( not Just to get married to her Ex husband..It has to be a genuine marriage...NOT PLANNED just for this purpose ) Men developed Nikah Halala in an effort to get around this by paying other men to temporarily marry their ex wives, sleep with and then divorce them so that they will be eligible for remarriage. They are only fooling themselves.... There is no temporary marriage in Islam. The rules regarding marriage were created to protect women from abuse, not to facilitate it....

    One final advice is that if you feel that you would not be able to fulfil the rights of the new husband then it will be best for the interest of both parties not to go ahead with the marriage.
