Giving three talaaqs in anger

Q: I have a question regarding Talaaq (divorce). I gave my wife Talaaq (divorce) saying 3 time at once but I was in itense anger not in my senses and unconscious and not in the state of mind. After saying it in the other second I realized what I did was wrong and the word talaq suddenly came to my mind and I was not even thinking that I am going to say that word. Is that talaq valid?


A: The talaaq issued in the state of anger is valid.

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