end of the month and said, “I want to come back.” So did the divorce take place?
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih
al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who replied as follows:
The matter is according to his intention; if he intended divorce, then
the divorce has happened. But it seems that he did not want the divorce to happen until
the end of the month, so on this basis the divorce did not happen.
And Allaah knows best.
