Talaq via Text Message

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org

I have recently gotten a divorce through text/sms but I wanted to make sure that I received it as the guy did not say the word ’talaq’ directly instead he used the words ’it’s better if we part ways’ . Is this kinaya? Did I receive a talaq or no?

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

In the situation described in your question, no divorce has taken place as your husband has used the words “it’s better if we part ways” as a suggestive statement to you.
