The Talaq of One Intoxicated

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Shafiifiqh.com


If the husband gives talaq in the state of alcohol addiction is that talaq valid?

Country: India


Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,

We understand that what is intended in the question to be that a husband issues a talaq while he is intoxicated from drinking alcohol. If he issues a talaq in this state, the talaq has happened. (Nihayat al-Muhtaj v. 6, p. 424)

And Allah knows best.
