Waswasa regarding talaaq

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have 3 points in my questions.

1. What is the rulling in shariah about the person who is suffering with waswasa problem might utterd the word divorce unintentionally and unintentionally.

2. If someone uttered the divorce word without any intention he just uttered due to some doubt about divorce and waswasa than is it count when he was reading regarding and thinking about this.

3. I had lot of doubt about divorce statments due to waswasa problem I might had utterd divorce word or something like this in past but I am not 100% sure I had just doubt because I have been suffering with waswasa problem since long time due to this problem many times I had repeated my all prayers and also wudhu and ghusl. Due to waswasa problem sometimes I uttered many words when I am alone so feel fear and worry what to do and how to get rid out of this situation.


A: Don’t pay attention to stray thoughts. What is said unintentionally, like while he is asleep is not valid.

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