Giving Talaaq (Divorce) Three Times At Once Is Bid'ah: Insinuating Thoughts (Waswaas) Of Divorce

Islamic Rulings - Living Shariah Verdicts

Islamic Questions & Answers

Could you please let me know according to the Shafi mishep, if a man can give his wife Talaaq tree(3) times at once.

Praise be to Allaah.

Giving talaaq (divorce) three times at once is bid'ah, and goes against the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): "… When you divorce women, divorce them at their ‘iddah (prescribed periods)…" [al-Talaaq 65:1]. If a Muslim wants to divorce his wife, he should divorce her according to the Sunnah, which is to give one talaaq at a time when his wife is taahir (not menstruating) and he has not yet had intercourse with her following her period, or when it is clear that she is pregnant. According to the Shaafi'i madhhab and the majority of other madhhabs, giving three talaaqs at once counts as three separate talaaqs and is irrevocable, and the couple cannot remarry until the woman has been married to and divorced from another man. Other scholars say that three talaaqs given at once count as only one talaaq.

And Allaah knows best.

Insinuating thoughts (waswaas) of divorce

Salamu Alaikum:

My question pertains to divorce in Islam.

I have been married for a year and early on in my marriage I had strong and constant thoughts about divorce. The divorce thoughts consisted of my repeating "I divorce you" on many occasions in my head. I have NEVER repeated these things out loud and they were only thoughts in my head.
I no longer want to divorce my wife and would like to stay with her. Is it possible for divorce to be valid just by repeating the thought in your head? Is it haram for us to stay together?

Please respond as soon as possible as this has been haunting me for the past year.

Praise be to Allaah.

In cases like this, the divorce is not valid, for two reasons:

It is only in your mind, and has never been expressed either verbally or in writing.

The divorce of a person who is afflicted with waswaas (insinuating thoughts from Shaytaan) is not valid because this is something that he has no control over, and it carries no weight in sharee'ah.

And Allaah is the Source of Strength.
