Husband telling wife “Take your divorce”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I married for the second time in 11.11.2016. Before marriage, I stayed together with her for one year. I wanted to make my relationship halaal but I did one mistake by not telling her that I was married with 2 kids.

After 3 months she got to know that I was married and she wanted a divorce. Now she wants a divorce and is not ready to live with me. Everyday she argues and fights with me.

So I told her to take divorce but she was not ready. Now what do I have to do. She is not easy to live with anymore and not ready to divorce. 


A: When you said, “Take your divorce,” then a divorce took place.

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