Talaaq over the phone?


 Question and Answer:

Q. my husband has given me talaaq over the phone is this valid he has it 3 times?


(Query published as received)

 A. Although this in inappropriate way of giving Talaaq, Talaaq issued over the phone is valid and effective. If it is established that your husband had issued you three Talaaqs over the phone, all three Talaaqs will be valid and effective thereby terminating the Nikah irretrievably and rendering you and your husband Haraam upon each other.

 And Allah Knows Best
