Q: Some months ago my wife got angry due to some family issues and went to her parents’ home but did not come back. I tried to bring her back but she didn’t come. One day I sent her a letter that If you want to come then welcome a thousand times from my side otherwise consider this letter a divorce from my side. (I mentioned Talaaq, Talaaq Talaaq in letter). Decision is in your hands. Now I want to know whether divorce has happened after she got my letter or not?
A: Divorce will only take place if she prefers not to come.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
