He said, “I don’t think my wife belongs to me”

Question

A person said, “I don’t think my wife belongs to me”. Does this count as talaaq (divorce)?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

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.
