Status Of Divorce Pronounced In Extreme Anger

Question

Is the divorce pronounced in extreme anger valid?


Answer

The principle guidance regarding the talaq in extreme anger (when one is out of control and does not know what he is doing) is that the judge will investigate the issue and ascertain whether the man in fact was out of consciousness or he is merely making a story up. Then the judge will decide the case either way. However, please note that in social issues like this our view is only an academic view and it cannot be implemented by the people unless a qazi or court decides the case. One cannot pass pass judgment without interviewing both the parties and without the acceptance of both the parties that they would accept the decision of the ruling person (the scholar or judge).
