Question ID: 1746 Category: Marriage and Divorce

Assalamualaikum mufti sb, i and my wife had an argument my wife asked me to leave her, her exact words were "leave me" she says she didn't mean to divorce her she just said it out of anger, i and my wife both have no idea what did i say in reply to her absolutely no idea I'm saying this with true honesty by swearing on Allah swt ,i get this waswasa that i might have said "okay" but i am not at all sure if said that ,and we didn't even know that a talaq can take place in such a manner until i watched some clips on youtube, she says had she known she wouldn't have said it, now that we both have no idea what i said will it be considered as talaq, please let me know as i am very much worried

بسم اللہ الرحمٰن الرحیم

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

Since the wife demanded to leave, and the husband said yes, but did not say any other word, and then there is doubt whether he said it or not, therefore the divorce will not have taken place.
