Q: I have so many issues in my life and thats why I am messaging you again and again. This is my lifes biggest problem, please give me a reply and ease my mind with the will of Allah Pak. I have waswasa in my mind. Actually me and my husband dont know that “go to hell”, “leave home” also counts as a divorce. I always used to say give me a divorce whenever we fight, may Allah pak forgive me, so when I say give me divorce he always says “go to hell”, “go” etc. After that when I got to know that these words also count as talaq e bain if a man’s intention was divorcing his wife then I asked my husband he said Allah know my intention was never for divorce, I just said go to hell in anger nothing else, but after that I am thinking 24 hours that he is not my husband anymore. My life becomes hell because of these waswasas, what should I do? Once I said leave me and he said just to make me realize, ‘I give you Tan’ he did not used the word talaq or divorce he just said ‘tan’ then he said how could you ask for divorce even you know it is so bad. Please tell me what can I do?
A: Ask him what was his intention.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
