Husband telling wife to write divorce

Q: I have a doubt in my mind over a situation 9 years back. I asked my husband to write divorce to me. He said that I must write it myself, meaning to say divorce written by wife will not be of any validity. Now I doubt whether he gave me the right to divorce and I am uncertain whether I had written the words of divorce 3 times or not. What is the ruling?

A: No talaaq has taken place.

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