Threatening to Divorce in Anger


Asalam a laikum

I have a question and i will be very thankful to you because my wife is very upset and iam also , I have done a sin in anger i have said ill divorce you , THIS WAS MY EXACT WORDS I WILL GIVE YOU DIVORCE IN ANGER ,

Please help me out and tell me according to Islam and Quran hadith.


Your statement “I will give you divorce in anger” in itself does not enact divorce.

Actually, what you have done, is just threatened her to divorce her, that’s it.

What you would like to do, is to openly discuss with her what is conflicting between
the two of you and thus upsetting you both. Brainstorm of ways each of you could
help to make the situation better and thus resolve the matter/s.
