Title: Talaq query


Asalam alikum.

Hazrat we have a situation here where one of our relative had a verbal argument and in the heat of argument the man said these words to his wife.  These words were said in his native language but i will try o translate it to the nearest. The words were " Bismillah Hir Rahman nir Raheem ik,do,teen, mein nay tumhein 3 talaq se azaad kardia " he did not utter the words talaq by itself three times rather he said ik,do,teen.. Can you please look in to this and advise accordingly if this was a valid talaq or if the nikah is still intact..


JazakALLAH kher


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If a person said “ik,do,teen, mein nay tumhein 3 talaq se azaad kardia,” then Talaq e Mughallaza (permanently irrevocable divorce) will take place.[i] In the subsequent statements of ik, do, teen, he clearly stated mein ne tumhe 3 talaq se azaad kardia (I have freed you with three divorces).

الهداية في شرح بداية المبتدي (2/ 257)

وإن كان الطلاق ثلاثا في الحرة أو ثنتين في الأمة لم تحل له حتى تنكح زوجا غيره نكاحا صحيحا ويدخل بها ثم يطلقها أو يموت عنها


كنز الدقائق (ص: 290)

وينكح مبانته في العدّة وبعدها

لا المبانة بالثّلاث لو حرّةً وبالثّنتين لو أمةً حتّى يطأها غيره، ولو مراهقًا بنكاحٍ صحيحٍ وتمضي عدّته


الفتاوى الهندية (1/ 473)

وَإِنْ كَانَ الطَّلَاقُ ثَلَاثًا فِي الْحُرَّةِ وَثِنْتَيْنِ فِي الْأَمَةِ لَمْ تَحِلَّ لَهُ حَتَّى تَنْكِحَ زَوْجًا غَيْرَهُ نِكَاحًا صَحِيحًا وَيَدْخُلَ بِهَا ثُمَّ يُطَلِّقَهَا أَوْ يَمُوتَ عَنْهَ
