Talaaq effective on a certain date

Fatwaa ID: 2033

Assalamualaikum. A sister received a message on the 7th of January from her husband saying he is giving her a revocable talaq to take place on the 10th of January at 10am.
Does the talaq occur immediately on the receipt of the message or at the said date and time?
Jazakallahu Khairan

Clarification: (exact words)
I (name) in a sound state of mind without any force pronounce one revocable talaq to (name) which will take effect on 10/10/2024 at 10am

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 your query. The dates above are contradictory. Nonetheless, the talaaq will occur and be effective on the date and time specified by the husband in the message.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
