Ruling of eelaa before rukhsati

Q: What is the ruling of eelaa if the husband and wife have done their nikah but rukhsati has not been done yet and is due after more than 4 months and husband and wife have not done any intercourse yet.

A: If he takes an oath in the name of Allah then it will be effective.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
