Uttering a clear divorce is not overlooked by lack of intention


What’s the legislative position regarding a man who quarrelled with his wife whereafter she said: “I will go to my family’s house’… to which he replied and said: “Go with 70 divorces” with this wording without intending divorce.

What’s is required of him?

May Allah reward you with good.


This is a divorce that’s clear and it counts as one divorce.
