Subject : Ruling when Husband Utters Divorce Jokingly, or in the State of Intoxication or Anger

Fatwa Number : 787

Date : 21-06-2010

Classified : Divorce

Fatwa Type : Summarized Fatawaa

Question :

What is the ruling when the husband utters divorce jokingly or while in the state of intoxication or anger?

The Answer :

All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May Allah`s peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

The man who utters divorce while in the state of anger, his divorce doesn`t take place and the same ruling applies to the man who is forced to utter divorce because he is threatened to be killed or one of his organs cut off, in addition to other matters that scholars have mentioned in this regard. However, the man who utters divorce jokingly or while having intentionally drunk alcohol, his divorce takes place. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
