Husband tells wife “It’s all over between us”

Title: It’s all over between us
Question

 

If I say to my wife that its all over between us, without intention of divorce, will a divorce be effected.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The statement in reference does not constitute a divorce. However, if the husband believes the marriage is indeed intact, it was irresponsible of him to make such a statement. Avoid making such statements.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
