is my divorce done even if I never pronounce talaq 3 times


My in-laws and my wife force me to divorce her though I don’t want. I went to court and request to stamp vendor that I want to make divorced deed but don’t want to pronounced anything so I never pronounced three time as Talaq . Do you think divorce is done or not?


Waalaykum Salam,

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
