Asalaamu alaikum. I am confused as to whether or not these talaaqs are valid. My husband has said it 3 times at 3 different occasions, he argues they are not valid as they were in anger. The first one was in an argument where we both verbally abused each other & i swore at him & told him to divorce me & he said talaaq this took place over the phone, he then took me back. The second time was in an argument on facebook and he also said talaaq again & then took me back. The third time was also over facebook in a heated argument which again involved us being abusive to one another & me telling him to divorce me, this time he said ur taaliqa taaliqa this translation valid? After he said it he sent a message saying the divorce isnt for me or for Allah, its for your sake & Allah knows what is in my heart. I would be greatful if you could assist me in this as he argues that the first 2 are not valid. I havent spoken to him since he said it the third time as i would like the matter to be cleared first. We also have 2 children involved. JazakhaAllah khair sister umm esa.

Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

Respected Sister

The 3 divorce {Talaaq} statements are valid.

Three divorces have come into effect, thus the marriage will be considered to be over.

It is a well-known fact that divorce is normally pronounced and issued in the state of anger. Rarely does one issue a divorce in a state other than anger

And Allah knows best
