(Fatwa: 237/186/D=01/1435)

Your nikah is still intact and no fresh nikah is required. Those who did so they did wrong. It is severe sin to interfere in Shariah ruling, he should do taubah and istighfar. As far as the matter of the nikah meeting is concerned in which you participated it is not established that it was wrong. The first husband should be asked about it. The sayings of husband and wife shall be final with its due conditions in the matter of talaq.

Allah knows Best!
