Q: My husband told my mum last year that he divorces me twice in one sitting. He later said he doesn't remember this and following saying it he smashed his phone. He said it was as if he was not present when saying it, he didnt realise. Is this counted as talaq or ighlaq? I can only take his word for it. Since then, he has said many times that 'main khatam karna chahta hun aj' meaning I want to end it today. But when asked he says he has no intention of divorce and it was only in anger. I cannot live my life as I don't know if I am married anymore.

A: The divorce is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
