Question: What is the ruling regarding me saying to my wife that she is divorced jokingly with laughter?
Shaykh al-Fawzân: There is no joking or laughing when it comes to the divorce. Its joking is seriousness, as the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said. If you jokingly tell her that she is divorced, she is divorced.
