Can my wife divorce me for not praying?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I had a question about my wife keep threaten me if I don’t go back to prayer she will divorce me? Can she do that? I always preform Jumuah Salaah and I pray but at times I get lazy and stop praying? I know it’s wrong but I am trying to be better.


A: She does not have the right to divorce, but you start off prayers immediately. A Muslim cannot live without prayers.

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