Mene apni wife ko kaha jao tum Azad ho Azad ho Azad ho
(i said to my wife go be free be free be free)
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
If you said this whilst discussing talaq(divorce), it will be considered a talaq ba’in (a separating divorce, requiring a new nikah).
As you said the aforementioned ambiguous word for divorce thrice, then three divorces will occur and your wife will now become unlawful for you.
And Allah SWT alone knows best.
