Divorcing a Pregnant Woman

Is it permissible to divorce a pregnant wife or not?

There is no objection in divorcing a pregnant woman; the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam said to ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with them, when he divorced his wife who was experiencing her menstrual period: Return her, then keep her with you until she becomes purified, then she has a menstrual period, then becomes purified, then divorce her, if you wish, while she is purified and without touching her (i.e. not having sexual intercourse with her) or while she is pregnant.
