Husband telling the wife “You are faarigh from me”

Q: I want to ask you about divorce in Islam. My husband said once “today if u go to work, you are faarigh from me”. I want to ask if with farigh word does divorce take place?


A: In many communities the word farigh is used for divorce. If this is the case that it is used as divorce in your circles then a divorce will take place.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
