Divorce query: ‘Talaq, talaq, talaq.’

Fatwaa ID: 1334

السلام عليكم ورحمةالله وبركاته
Respected Mufti

There’s a new Muslim lady whose husband keeps telling her “talaq”, in anger. She’s confused about the rules regarding talaq. She also requests guidance or advice as she has relocated to England and has no support there.

السلام عليكم ورحمةالله وبركاته
He did not say: ‘You are divorced, or ‘I divorce you’.

In a heated argument he will say ‘ this is why I want a divorce ‘
But on Thursday for the first time he said: ‘Talaq, talaq, talaq.’

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

We take note of the details of the query. May Allaah Ta’aala make it easy for the sister. The man’s attitude is unbecoming. In the enquired situation, his statement “Talaq, talaq, talaq” has constituted three divorces. The marriage has irrevocably broken. They must separate with immediate effect. They are no longer husband and wife. Her ‘iddah has started from the time he uttered that statement on Thursday.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
