    Rukhsati is a cultural tradition. If you've had a nikah, with all the obligatory parts that make up a valid nikah, then you're married in Islamic law. Cultural traditions such as rukhsati aren't required for a valid marriage to have taken place.

    If you've given your wife talaq, she has the right to keep the haq meher and it would not be acceptable for you to try to take this back.

  2. If by no Rukhsati you mean you haven't consummated the marriage then this would apply:

    "And if you divorce them before you have touched them and you have already specified for them an obligation, then [give] half of what you specified - unless they forego the right or the one in whose hand is the marriage contract foregoes it. And to forego it is nearer to righteousness. And do not forget graciousness between you. Indeed Allah , of whatever you do, is Seeing."

  4. half of the haq meher is obligatory if you had some private romantic meeting then you will have to pay full haq meher

    Be generous during divorce. It is a very very very painful and life altering experience - the last thing a woman needs is a heartless cold man knocking on her door for his gifts and haq mehr back. Our Quran says be generous and kind during divorce and part with kindness, give more during divorce. Please think of your akirah not dunya and leave your ex wife with what you gave her during marriage.
