Salam .I have a query. I used to talk to woman on the internet whilst I was married. I swear by the Quran that I cannot remember what I said to her but I am concerned that may through lack of knowledge / ignorance of deen said to her via email that I was divorced. If this is what I said it was never my intention to divorce my wife. This happened seven years ago so I cannot remember what I said. I read one of ur fatwas that if u write divorce but not ur intention to give it then it doesn’t stand but the fatwa said if written with intention then divorce counts. Please advise

Answer

(Fatwa: 506/341/L=1431)

 

If you have not pronounced the above mentioned sentence with the intention of talaq, in this case there is no talaq on your wife.

و تطلق بليست لي بإمرأة أو لست لك بزوج إن نوى الطلاق (ملتقي الأبحر مع جمع الأنحر: 2/40).

The rulings of talaq are very sensitive and complex; hence in future you should avoid pronouncing such sentences.
