Husband saying “Go,you are free till qiyamah


Q: A husband and wife were having a bad fight, she was packing her bags to leave him, he was happy to let her go and he said to her “go, you are free till qiyamah”. Does this mean she is divorced from him?

A: If the husband intended talaaq at the time of uttering these words, one talaaq-e-baain (irrevocable talaaq) will take place.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

الطلاق على ضربين صريح وكناية فالصريح قوله أنت طالق ومطلقة وطلقتك فهذا يقع به الطلاق الرجعي … ولا يفتقر إلى النية (الهداية 2/359)

وأما الضرب الثاني وهو الكنايات لا يقع بها الطلاق إلا بالنية أو بدلالة الحاللأنها غير موضوعة للطلاق بل تحتمله وغيره فلا بد من التعيين أو دلالته (الهداية 2/373)
