Q: Last night I had a fight with my wife and in anger I threatened her that if she countinue the same way then next time I will tell her 3 times talaq talaq talaq. Since my intention was not to give talaq, but unfortunately I said the words 3 times. I want to know whether my marriage is still valid or not. Honestly speaking I tried to threaten her and next time I will tell her. I am regretting on this since I made a big sin.
A: Since you had informed her that you will issue three talaaqs in the future if she continues in her ways, no talaaq has taken place.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
