Answered by: Maulana Qadeer Ahmed Tariq
If your husband says Talaq to you as a joke but didn't say it with the intention of divorce does it count?
If it does count as a divorce..what if he was unaware that saying it as a joke counts… what if he was ignorant to it?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحي
Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah reports that Nabi said:
There are three things which, whether undertaken seriously or in jest, are treated as serious; Marriage, divorce and taking back a wife (after a revocable divorce) (SunanTirmidhi, Hadith: 1184, SunanAbiDawud: Hadith: 2194 and SunanIbnMajah, Hadith: 2039)
In your case one Talaq rajee will occur which means the nikah has not been terminated but he has two more chances of talaq left.
Only Allah Knows best
