Question:

Telling someone to write Kinayah words

Answer:

Bismillah

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

If someone writes out a divorce on behalf of the husband and the writer reads it out to the husband who thereafter signs it and presents this to the wife, then it will be considered as a divorce.  Admission is necessary for all written words, whether the person writes the divorce himself or a third party has written it on his behalf.  If a person denies having any knowledge of it then the divorce will not occur.  (Raddul Muhtar p.456 v.4)

With regards to your question if you told someone to write the kinayah or ambiguous words of divorce then divorce will occur.
