Telling one’s wife, “get out, get lost” etc.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. Sometimes my wife comes to me and asks me about doing something. I reply to her “jo dil chahe karo”, Is say it sometimes to show my anger, and sometimes just to tell her that she can do it or not. I never used the word “free” or “azad” or “farigh” and never intended divorce. Additionally, we both originate from same city and same neighborhoods, and we both don’t understand “jo dil chahe karo” is not considered exclusive term for divorce.

2. During a fight I used the words such as dafa hojao “get lost”, “buy ticket and leave”, “get out” etc. and never once intended divorce.


A: No divorce has taken place.

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