Q: I have a few questions regarding whether talaq takes place in these circumstances.
1. If a person says ‘Recharge’ or ‘Macho’ aloud with the intention of divorce, does this count.
2. I was uttering ‘Salamu-alaykum’ repeatedly with no intention. On the last time, when I reached ‘alaykum’ the thought and intention to divorce came to me. Does this take place?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
