Uttering the Word ‘Talaq’ Thrice


I married my wife four months ago. I moved back to the United States but I did not like my wife. I said to her on phone “main tujhe talaq deta hoon” three times. She is resident of Pakistan and I am US citizen. My question is has talaq occured. Is she not my wife anymore. And must she marry someone else before marrying me again.


Alaykum Salaam

This is not a valid method of talaq as per Shia Ja’fari Madhab.

Kind regards
