Fatwa ID: 01716
Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
I had some quarrel with my wife and all me, my wife and my mother are not staying in same place. My wife is at my in-laws place after her maternity. I told my mother that I wish to give talaq to my wife but I never conveyed this to my wife. I'm not sure how many times I told my mother about this. Is my nikah valid?
P.S. I never told my wife that I want to give u talaq.
The Islamic ruling regarding talaq being uttered in the future tense is that talaq does not occur. They are merely a promise or a warning and promises and warnings do not effect talaq. (Badaaius Sanaai p.210 v.2)
Regarding your question, wishing or intending to give talaq is not actually giving talaq, therefore, in such a situation talaq would not occur.
