Asking the Wife If She Wants Talaaq

Q. I would like to find out that if a person does not know much about how talaaq works and is not aware whether asking the wife if she wants a talaaq, constitutes Talaaq, does the talaaq come into effect? I was told that by asking if she wants the talaaq then the first one is given. I was not aware of this and I didn’t know.

A. The information you have been given is erroneous. Asking the wife if she wants talaaq does not constitute talaaq. In other words, no talaaq comes into effect merely by asking the wife if she wants talaaq.
