Divorce valid without witnesses as per islam


aoa, my husband sent me a written divorce talaaq nama (awal) but he did not mention witnesses in forum so can u tell me is that valid divorce according to islam without witnesses?


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
