Husband asking the wife to leave

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My sister has been in an emotionally and verbally abusive relationship for the past 7 years. Her husband recently asked her to leave and wants nothing to do with her. She left with her 3 children. Now he refuses to give her talaq out of spite and wanting to maintain control of her. Does the fact that he asked her to leave constitute a valid talaaq?


A: If he had intentions to divorce then this will constitute divorce.

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