Do these words constitute a (talaaq-e-bain) irrevocable divorce?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

brother please help me and my wife had an argument and i have said to her here is your car keys and your house keys bye bye meaning i left you i think was just angry and wanted to punish her or make her worried and i don’t really know what my intention was when i said these words, i left the house but came back after 20 minutes when my anger goes and we said sorry to each other and continued normal, and we never had anything like that agian,

i don’t think i was ready to divorce her but i was angry with her . and i am having doubts of my intentions when i said these words. am just confused this happened 8 months ago and now she pregnant, please help having known these words could be considered divorce i am 100% sure i wouldn’t have said it.

 i love my wife and i think the reason why said these words is because i i wanted her to stop this arguments i think, but i wasn’t sure what i was thinking when i said these words to  her maybe i was treating her or something, i really cant not remember what was going through my head but i wouldn’t give her talaq maybe i was just angry and wanted to make her afraid.

but i dint think i wanted to leave her for good that’s one thing i am sure of whats my situation brother,is she still my wife? i wrote to Islamic sharia council uk and this is what they said (These words without clear and firm intention of divorce, will not constitute an Islamic Divorce.) is this correct because if this is correct my intention was not firm for divorce. jizaka kallah brother

i could have known what my intention was when i uttered these words because i dint even know  you could divorce like this  because if i knew this could be considered divorce i wount have said it.

Your query has recently been answered on the 29th of October.

As stated in the answer, “In the case in reference, you told your wife: “here is your car keys and your house keys bye bye.” These words are (kinaayah) allusive and would constitute a (talaaq-e-bain) irrevocable divorce only if you had the intention of giving her talaaq” 

As such, you must ask yourself and ascertain whether or not you had the intention of divorce when you have uttered such a statement.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
