Husband saying “I will divorce you”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Me and my husband had an argument and he said to me that you will get divorce from me, I will divorce you. I said that you just divorced me and he said that next time I will say it three times in one breath. Last week he said to me that I will divorce you. Is this divorce valid or not because after that he calmed down and he said that I haven’t divorced you. What should I do?


A: Through the husband saying “I will divorce you”, divorce does not take place.

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