A man’s saying to his wife “I will divorce you” does not count as a divorce

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a man says to his wife, “In sha Allaah I will divorce you and get rid of you,” but he does not say anything other than that, does that count as a divorce? His intention was not to divorce her, rather it was meant only as a threat, and he is certain about that.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

A man’s saying to his wife “In sha Allaah I will divorce you and get rid of you,” does not  count as a divorce, rather it is a threat of divorce in the future, so no divorce has taken place, unless he instigates it after that. 

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
