Husband saying I will divorce you

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I recall my husband once saying that he will divorce me or he is going to divorce me. I don’t think he meant it there in a instant but as thinking about it and said in anger. I think I forced him to say it and he was intoxicated. Is this counted? I asked him and he said he had no intention and meant maybe in the future but he couldn’t recall how he said it but remembers his intention. He also once said divorce on its own a few times but not to me .. just screamed it randomly. Is this counted?


A: No.

If he intended you, then the divorce has taken place.

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