A wife and husband had a dispute and she left the house saying i am going out as i do not want to escalate the situation, her husband called her back in and said is that what you want? For me to say fine talaq talaq talaq. She cried out no and reconciled thereafter. Will talaq take place if no one had any intention for divorce and to emphasise the situation? As the condition was based on the wife? A wife asked her husband does he not think divorce is best for them, the husband states if that is what you want talaq talaq talaq, then they made up, will talaq take place as the questions asked above? But no intention of separating from either parties was present.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

According to our understanding of your query, the husband said “is that what you want? For me to say fine talaq talaq talaq”.

The subsequent statement, for me to say fine, it is conditional on the wife wanting Talaq. In other words, the husband means“If that is what you want then talaq talaq talaq”. The wife responded no. That is she did not want Talaq, therefore the condition for the Talaqs did not take place and accordingly the Talaqs did not follow[1]. The Nikah remains intact[2].

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

[1] [Fatāwā Mahmūdiyyah, 13: 150, Dār al-Iftā Jamiah Faruqiyyah, Karāchi]

[2] (قال لها اختاري أو أمرك بيدك ينوي) تفويض (الطلاق) لأنها كناية فلا يعملان بلا نية (أو طلقي نفسك فلها أن تطلق في مجلس علمها به) مشافهة أو إخبارا (وإن طال) يوما أو أكثر ما لم يوقته ويمضي الوقت

قبل علمها (ما لم تقم) لتبدل مجلسها حقيقة (أو) حكما بأن (تعمل ما يقطعه) مما يدل على الإعراض لأنه تمليك فيتوقف على قبول في المجلس لا توكيل، فلم يصح رجوعه، حتى لو خيرها ثم حلف أن لا يطلقها فطلقت لم يحنث في الأصح (لا) تطلق (بعده) أي المجلس (إلا إذا زاد) في قوله طلقي نفسك

وأخواته (متى شئت أو متى ما شئت أو إذا شئت أو إذا ما شئت) فلا يتقيد بالمجلس (ولم يصح رجوعه) لما مر.

[Ad-Durr al-Mukhtar ma`a Radd al-Muhtar, 3: 315-7, H. M. Saeed]

وإذا قال لامرأته اختاري ينوي بذلك الطلاق أو قال لها طلقي نفسك فلها أن تطلق نفسها ما دامت في مجلسها ذلك فإن قامت منه أو أخذت في عمل آخر خرج الأمر

[Al-Hidayah fi Sharh Bidayat al-Mubtadi, 1: 236]

وإذا قال لامرأته : اختاري ينوي بذلك الطلاق أو قال لها : طلقي نفسك فلها أن تطلق نفسها ما دامت في مجلسها ذلك ، فإن قامت منه أو أخذت في عمل آخر خرج الأمر من يدها

[Fat`h al-Qadir, 8: 180]

أراد بنية الطلاق نية تفويضه وقيد بالمجلس لأنها لو قامت عنه أو أخذت في عمل آخر بطل

[Al-Bahr al-Ra`iq, Sharh Kanz ad-Daqa`iq, wa Minhat al-Khaliq wa Takmilat at-Turi, 3: 336]
