Q: My husband told me if I will call or contact a friend of mine, I will automatically get three talaaqs. I wanted to know if this is true according to Shariah? Will I really get divorced if I call that friend? And if this is true then how can I talk to that friend if I have a serious issue to discuss with her without getting divorced? Please help. I hope i will get an answer soon.
A: If your husband suspended the three talaaqs upon you calling your friend, then by you calling your friend, the three talaaqs will take place.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
