Four months before, quarrel took place between me and my husband and my husband in full anger said to me: “I am giving you talaq” two times and two days after there was a compromise between us and again a month after there was a severe quarrel in between us and my husband in full anger said to me “I am giving you talaq” third time and next day itself he forgot what he said to me. But I remember very well he said me talaq and till now he doesn’t remembers about third talaq and he is not sure he said talaq or not as he forgotten everything, this all happened in extreme anger of my husband, so I want to know whether the third talaq is considered or not? Please reply me as soon as possible.

(Fatwa: 1036/815/H=9/1434)

You have clearly heard your husband giving you the third talaq, then you became haram upon your husband. Now, it is unlawful to live with him and to have marital affairs. If the husband also becomes sure like you about the third talaq, then he will also be given similar ruling. But if he does not admit, but gives the third talaq one more time then also it will carry abovementioned ruling. But if he does not do so, then you may demand for khula so that you can marry somewhere else. If he is not ready for talaq as well as khula, you can file this case in any nearby Darul Qaza or Shariah Panchayat and get it resolved. Then you should follow the ruling of Shariah Panchayat which it will deliver after acquiring the details of the extreme anger and the statements of persons concerned.

Allah knows Best!
