As Salaam Alaikum,
1) Will a man’s statement “have to divorce” constitute as divorce?
2) Will the statement above constitute as divorce if spoken with intention of divorce?
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
- The statement ‘have to divorce’ speaks about that which is yet to take place in the future when aperson says to his wife, ‘I have to divorce you’, he is actually saying to her, ‘I have got to divorce you, but have not done it as yet.’ As such, divorce cannot occur with these words.
- Even if it is spoken with the intention of divorce, the divorce will not take place.
