Talaaq in the state of anger

Q: I’d like to know something regarding talaaq. I am an ex-recovering addict. I used drugs and I got married in 2012 and 6 months later in a rage of anger and not in the right frame of mind I sent an email to my wife giving her 3 talaqs. It’s now 2014. I have rehabilitated myself and have been thinking a lot about what I’ve done and wondering whether my talaaq are valid or not?


A: Talaaq issued in the state of anger is valid. Hence if you issued three talaaqs, the talaaqs are valid and the nikaah has terminated.

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