He wrote a letter of divorce to his wife intending to send it at the end of the month

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
His wife insisted on divorce, and he told her “Think about it for one month.” But she did not change her mind, and she left. When the month was nearly over, he wrote a letter of divorce, intending to send it to her exactly at the end of the month. She got in touch with him one day before the 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.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
