Fatwa Answer

Question ID: 948 Category: Dealings and Transactions

Assalam O Alaikum

I think I said : Theek Hai Aap Ghar Ja sakti hain

I said this when my wife asked me that she wants to go home

I get these wasawis all the time that I gave talaaq to my wife in my mind but I always say thru my mouth no that i didnt and i do istighfaar.

At that specific time, this wasawasa came in mind that if you say that "aap ja sakti ho" this could result in talaaq, while this thought was in my mind i said that aap ja sakti ho but i did not make the intention of talaq but i do not recall what was going through my mind....i am confused and frustrated.

 الجواب وبالله التوفيق

A Divorce does not take place just because of a negative thought, or because one is paranoid or has suspicion over their thoughts.

لو اجری الطلاق علی قلبہ و حرک لسانہ من غیر تلفظ یسمع، لا یقع    (مراقی الفلاح)

عن ابی ھریرہ قال قال رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم، ان اللہ عز و جل تجاوز لا متی عما حدثت بہ انفسھا مالم تعمل او تتکلم بہ                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               (صحیح مسلم کتاب الایمان  ج۱ص ۷۸

(ورکنہ لفظ مخصوص ھو ما جعل دلالۃ علی معنی الطلاق من صریح او کنایۃ   (رد المحتار مع الدر

In order for a divorce to take place, just saying 'Go to your home' or 'Leave my home' is not going to constitute a divorce. Since a metaphor (or figurative speech) needs to be accompanied with a true intention of issuing a divorce in order for it to take place.
