Did His Words Mean Divorce?. by Taamas111 (m): 3:54pm on January 13

If you fought with your husband and at that
time he was really tensed and he said that
"then our relationship is broken or over"
later he said he did not mean it from his

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

If a husband says to his wife: "Our
relationship is over" then this is considered
as a metaphor for divorce and it is not a
direct expression that mean divorce, so
divorce does not take place unless he
intended it. So if he says that he did not
intend divorce then his wife is not divorced.

But if he says that he intended divorce by
this expression, then divorce takes place.
However, some scholars, may Allah have
mercy on them, are of the view that divorce
takes place by uttering one of the metaphors
of divorce even if the husband did not mean
it in some cases where it is considered as a
strong indication that he intended divorce,
like in the case when he is angry or when she
asks him to divorce her and he answers by
saying: "Our relationship is over" and other
expressions of same meaning. Indeed this is
the established opinion in the Hanafi and
Hanbali schools. So the circumstances [of the
incident] like the intention of initiating a
divorce are to be considered. However, our
opinion here in Islamweb is the first opinion.

Allah Knows best.
