Can one give right of divorce to someone else?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum 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:

Can a Muslim give his right of Divorce ( Talaaq) to someone else. I mean to say is that can a husband give his right of divorcing his wife to someone.


Kindly oblige

Can one give right of divorce to someone else?

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


It is absolutely permissible in Shariah for the husband, in his lifetime, that he can give or transfer his right of divorce to someone if he wishes to do so.


If the husband wishes to do so, he may even transfer his right to divorce to his own wife!


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.


Your Brother in Islam,
