Assalamu alaikum ya sheikh
A brother approach me and requested me to write for him a divorce statement because he want divorce his wife but he don’t know how he will write it.
I want know if what I did was right?
How do I do if someone approach me with the same issue next time?
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
I would advise you to leave the issue of divorce to the Shariah court or legal bodies. Individuals should not handle it; otherwise, we would end up destroying families. Talaq in Islam is a most serious matter; it cannot be reduced to the status of plaything to be left to the whims and fancies of men as women are simply chattels to be discarded whimsically.
Almighty Allah Knows best.
