The Husband Said to the Wife I Give You One Separation

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed Bin Mohamed Umarji


The husband said to the wife I give you one separation. The wife asked what do you mean? Husband said one separation means one divorce. Which divorce has taken place?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


It is stated in Fatāwā Dār Al-‛ulūm Zakarīyyā

If the husband uttered these words with the intention of divorce, then one talaq-e-bain has taken place. Divorce will not take place without an intention. The reality of the intention can be learnt from the husband.1

It is stated in Ad-Durr al-Mukhtar

ف) – الكنايات لا تطلق بهاقضاء إلا بنية أو دلالة الحال) وهي حالة مذاكرة الطلاق أو الغضب،

Metaphors (do not constitute a divorce) Judicially (except with the intention or indication of the situation), which is the case of deliberating on divorce or anger2

Only Allah knows best
