My husband divorced me in 2016, by saying 3 times Talaq with no witnesses…..


As salam,
I am ver confused, my husband divorced me in 2016, by saying 3 times Talaq with no witnesses and i was pregnant at that time. After that he said he didnt mean and he was angry. He also said he dindt use proper talaq word but he might be lying.
Now we have 1 daughter, we were staying together as he said we are not divorced.
Now we live seperate since 6 months and he do visits once in a week, now our relationship is not smooth, he doesnt love and he is not loyal. He says sometimes that we are divorced and thats why there is no love in relationship and othertines he says no it is just counted as 1 divorce. I am very confused. What is the ruling? Are we still husband and wife or we are unknowingly commiting a sin?
Please advise i am in too much depression.


Waalaykum Salam,

Thank you for your Question

The following is according to the Shia sect.

For a divorce to be correct, it has to have the following conditions:

1- You have to have two believing adults as your witness
2- The woman has to be clean of her menstrual period and also shouldn’t be pregnant
3- Proper Arabic words need to be uttered for the act to take place.

Best wishes
