Divorce

Q:

Assalamo alaikum

I have been divorced my wife 3 years before on just stamp paper with 2 witnesses. My divorce has been done or not? I also have been paid her meher & iddat as per law.

A:

Waalaykum Salam,

To obtain an answer to your Question, I phone the office of Sayyid Sistani and they said that:

For a talaq to be correct has to have the following conditions:

1- You have to have two believing adults as your witness
2- The woman has to be clean of her menstrual period and also shouldn't be pregnant
3- Proper Arabic words need to be uttered for the act to take place.

In your case, since the 'Sighah' of talaq was not recited, your marriage is still at place.

Best wishes
