Will talaaq take place if husband says that he wants to give his wife talaaq?

Q: My husband keeps on saying and messaging many people and me also that he wants to give me talaq. He is doing this continueously for the last 6 months but didn't say it to me directly. Does it affect our nikaah?

A: If he did not yet issue a talaaq but said that he intends divorcing you, then no talaaq has taken place and your nikaah is intact.

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