Q: My husband complained to my mother that”your daughter is not giving me time” out of misunderstanding. He said I cant tolerate this situation and I am fed up with this situation. My mother told him to have patience then he replied that “I am sorry I can not tolerate this.” He didnt use any word of divorce at all. It was just he was complaining. He swore to Allah his only intention was to talk to me. But I am confused that can these words constitute divorce?
A: No divorce has taken place.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
