A person said, “I don’t think my wife belongs to me”. Does this count as talaaq (divorce)?
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who replied that this expression is not a clear statement of talaaq, so we would have to look at what he meant when he said it. And Allaah knows best.
