Praise be to Allaah.
mentioned about your saying, “If I get a job I shall issue a divorce,”
when what you meant was leaving the company, then you completed the
sentence after being quiet for a few seconds, does not count as a divorce,
because the wife was not meant by these words.
“If I get a job I shall issue a divorce,” does not count as a divorce of
your wife, even if you intended to divorce her; rather it is simply telling
of what you have decided to do in the future, and that does not count as a
avoid using the word of divorce (talaaq), whether you are serious or joking,
with your wife and with others, because this is safer.
And Allah knows best.
