Has talaq taken place if no one was present when talaq was said twice?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Janab mufti sahab asalam,i got married an year back,i and wife were living a woderful life,suddenly there were some misuderstadings and i told my wife that if u do not change ur attitude then i will give u talak and i said it twice,then everything got settled nd we started living a happy life together,then again some misunderstanding took place and she went to her home for two days,the very next day her chacha came to me nd told that my wife is saying that i had said to her talak three times one month back,i have never said this and the worst part is that there was no one when i said to her two times that i will give u talak if u didnt change ur behaviour,in such situation the talak take place or not,my in lawas r not ready to hear me although my wife is lying,even if they want to settle this on khula i m not ready bacause i had not given her talak even a single time.


(Fatwa: 1710/1395/D=1430)

?I will give u talaq? is a threat, if you have said this, no talaq took place. As far as the saying of the uncle of wife that according to your wife, you have divorced her one month back with three talaqs, so if your wife claims talaq, she should present two witnesses in Shariah panchayat, otherwise no talaq will be ruled to take place without witnesses.
