Dear mufti sahib
question regarding actual divorce statement and metaphors:
If a person with intention writes the first letter 'g' of the word 'go'.
But then stops and doesn't write the full word. Does that affect the nikaah?
Dear brother in Islam,
Asslam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
Fortunately, incomplete words in speech or writings will not affect the Nikah adversely. So, If someone was going to write the word "go" with the intention of divorce but then stopped, it would not be considered a divorce.
And Allah knows best.
