Husband wants Divorce


Question and Answer:
Q. what is the ruling when your husband says he wants a divorce?
Do I sit in iddat? I’m a working lady do I have to give him my money also
 
 (Query published as received)
 
A. Talaaq does not become effective by the husband merely saying that he wants a divorce as this is just an expression of his wish to divorce. As long as he does not issue the divorce, no Talaaq becomes effective.
 
There is no Iddah in this case since there is no divorce.
 
You do not have to provide any maintenance for your husband.
 
 
 
And Allah Knows Best
