Husband telling the wife “It’s over”

Q: On the 9th of December my husband told me its over over whatsapp but after that we slept together and told me he didn’t mean what he said and then again he told me “I’m done” and again over whatsapp that was on the 3rd of January and then my mum asked him are you and my daughter finished now, so he said yes. Does this mean we are divorced or not?


A: If he intended talaaq at the time of uttering these statements, then talaaq had taken place.

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