Asking for talaaq without a valid reason

Q: Is it true if a woman asks her husband to divorce her with no valid reason than she has shook the arsh of Allah or what is the sin for this?


A: The actual Hadith you are referring to is as follows: Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said that the woman who seeks divorce from her husband without any valid reason will not smell the fragrance of Jannah (i.e. until she is not purified of this sin in the hereafter, she will not gain entry into paradise).

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

عن ثوبان قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم أيما امرأة سألت زوجها الطلاق في غير ما بأس فحرام عليها ريح الجنة (سنن ابن ماجة #2055)
