Template for Divorce

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I have been told that should a man wish to talaaq (divorce) his wife via text message, the wording has to follow a certain template or else it would not be seen as valid. Also i have heard that if the message says “you are divorced from me” it is not valid. Could you perhaps provide some clarification on this matter.

A: A special or certain template is not required. If he texts her a divorce in any word form, it will be valid and binding.

‘You are divorced from me’ is also valid and binding.
