Forcing one’s husband to issue a talaaq

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’m a 33 year old woman. My husband was an alcoholic. One day we got into a heated argument and I couldn’t control myself and forced my husband to give me talaaq. He refused at first and kept quite. When I forced him he just told me “Go talaaq” just once and he repeated the same thing after somedays. I want to know if talaaq took place in this situation and how many?


A: Yes, talaaq has taken place. If he repeated the talaaq only once after a few days, then in total two talaaqs have taken place.

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