Husband messaging the wife “You are free”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My husband said to me via whatsapp messenger. I am sending you his whole message kindly read and guide me ”u r free..I will find meher n pay you. It is useless to waste your time now.. You won’t hear from me now.. Ur free go anywhere u r free ur free u r free.. ” and now he is not ready to admit it. He is saying my niyat was totally different and mene koi talaaq nahi di. Kindly guide with Quraan ayat or hadith.


A: It apparently seems that he was referring to talaaq as he spoke of mahr etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
