All sources of Islamic law, be it hadees, ijma or qiyas, are subservient to the Koran.

Synonyms:  reuniting, reunion, bringing (back) together (again), conciliation.

Synonyms: marital, matrimonial, nuptial, marriage, married, wedded, connubial, bridal.
Usage: If within iddah the marital dispute gets resolved, conjugal relations may be resumed without undergoing the procedure of remarriage.
