Husband lying about signing divorce papers

Q: If I say to my wife just to threaten her that I have signed the divorce document and you will get them but i was lying. I haven't signed any documents. I was just trying to hurt her and threaten her. Will divorce fall? I have a clear intention that by saying this I didn't mean any divorce.

A: No. But be careful of these types of utterances. Sometimes it could be disastrous.

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