Divorce query

Fatwaa ID: 2127


Yesterday me and my husband were into an heated argument and later my husband lost his control broke all the things in kitchen and cried in anger and said that he needs talaq from me three times. His exact words were in hindi “meko terse talaq hona” three times with an complete intention to leave me. Later when he was normal he said he made a mistake saying that and was sorry. I said he didnt give me talaq bus said it thrice asking for it. Now I am confused, was it an actual talaq or not. If yes, do we have to redo our nikah? Please let me know. I am unable to sleep or do anything due to the stress. I am pregnant and have a 3 year old child as well

I stay in United States and 2 days back me and my husband were into an argument and it heated up so much that he was angry and hurt at the same time. And he said that “he needs talaq from
Me” three times in Hindi
His exact words were
“Meko tumse talaq hona”
But later our argument cooled down and he said he didnt mean to leave but wanted me to leave him
We are confused if it was an actual talaq because he said he needs divorce and not that he is giving me divorce
Can you please clarify this situation

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala fill your marriage with love, happiness and affection.

We take note of the details of your query. The statement in question is an expression of your husband’s intent or wish to divorce. It is not a statement of divorce. Accordingly, your nikaah is intact. Talaaq did not take place.

We advise your husband to refrain from making such statements in the future. The words of talaaq or anything related to that should never be used during arguments, especially when angry. Likewise, he should never repeat anything of this nature thrice. That may lead to absolute grief and there may not be an opportunity of reconciliation.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
