Declaration of divorce
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The absolute majority of the scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that the mere saying of a husband to his wife that our relationship is finished would not constitute a declaration of divorce in the Sight of Shariah Law; thus rest absolutely assured brother that your statements by themselves do not affect the validity of your nikaah or your marriage.
But if one were to declare to ones wife, whether in anger or in jest, words to the effect of I divorce you.indeed a divorce would be established between the couple in their marriage in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah.
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2189 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet (saws) said: There are three things which, whether undertaken seriously or in jest, are treated as serious: Marriage, divorce and taking back a wife (after a divorce which is not final).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
