My husband said to me talaq talaq talaq. I want to ask you if only the word talaq is said, is talaq done? He didn’t say to me I give you talaq, he only said talaq.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
In principle, the occurrence of sareeh (clear) words of talaq is dependent on the prevailing situation. If a man uses words of divorce, they will come into effect if they were fighting, or if he addressed his wife when he uttered them, or if he indicated to her.
