A man’s saying to his wife “I will divorce you” does not count as a divorce

If a man says to his wife, “In sha Allaah I will divorce you and get rid of you,” but he does not say anything other than that, does that count as a divorce? His intention was not to divorce her, rather it was meant only as a threat, and he is certain about that.

Praise be to Allaah.

A man’s saying to his wife “In sha Allaah I will divorce you and get rid of you,” does not  count as a divorce, rather it is a threat of divorce in the future, so no divorce has taken place, unless he instigates it after that. 

And Allaah knows best.
