Is emotionally forced to divorced a valid divorce?

 

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

 

Answer

 

Being in a position where you’re reputation is on line will not be considered as force in Islam.

 

As I mentioned before situations such as being “emotionally forced” or being forced by someone without threat to ones life or the threat of being injured is not considered as being forced.

 

As long as you did not say the divorce verbally, but just merely signed it in the presence of your wife will not constitute a divorce. (Raddul Muhtar p.438 v.4)
