In quarrel with my wife she abuses me

In quarrel with my wife she abuses me. In response I said her, ‘then do I say you Talaq’.

I know that Talaq will be effective when I say three times and if I say one time then I will have only further two chances and if I say in future two more times Talaq the it will be effective and I can not meet my wife.

My question is that, by saying the words, ‘then do I say you Talaq’, do I have lost one chance. I mean do I have now only two more chances to say Talaq or still I have three chances and saying one time the words, ‘then do I say you Talaq’ even one time Talaq is not counted.




Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

Your statement to your wife ‘Then do I give you talaq’ does not constitute talaq.


And Allah knows best
