Extreme Temper Divorce: Does it Count?

Q: A few days ago during a fight between my husband and myself, my husband said in extreme temper or rage “OK bring your relative I will finish this relation”. I said “no one can do this only we can. Give me divorce. He only said “I give you”, but did not use the word talaaq or divorce. After this we apologized to each other. I said to my husband you have given me 1 divorce. He said it does not count in divorce because he showed me a hadith in ighlaaq or extreme temper divorce will not count.


A: One revocable talaaq has taken place. The husband has the right to revoke the talaaq as long as you are in iddat.

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

وقالت لزوجها طلقني فقال فعلت طلقت فإن قالت زدني فقال فعلت طلقت أخرى (الدر المختار 3/294)
