Talaq Query

Talaq Query


Salaams,Trust you well!

A husband and wife had an argument earlier in the day,later on they were sitting with their daughter and the wife started the topic on the argument,in a light hearted moment, The daughter said: Its Over(meaning the argument) upon which the husband said: Its Over(meaning the argument ….  Its Over ,Its Over(but on the second two “‘Its Over” , he’s thoughts was the breakdown in relationship. The thought of talaq did not cross his mind or a far as he can recall!Will his words be be taken as a divorce ? if so what is the procedure going forward ? 

Jazak Allah


In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The husbands statement, “its over”, subsequent to the daughter saying “its over” meaning the argument is over, was to confirm the daughters statement that the argument is over.

The husbands statement has nothing to do with divorce. The husband should not entertain baseless thoughts and Waswasa.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
