My Kinaya Divorce: Did it Happen or Not?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I said to my wife weeks ago: “I have to go” intending a kinaya divorce and she said “are you serious” and I said “yes”. Days later because I was unsure whether it took place and I wanted to be sure and I said alone in a room but addressing her in my heart “I intended a kinaya divorce. You are free” So what took place now? Kinaya or Sareeh and how many times?


A: If you said these words verbally then a baain divorce has taken place.

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