Question: My husband said to me in angerI give you talaq talaq talaqJust want to know is it really happened or what's the processThanks

If the intent of your question is to ask, if divorce pronounced in anger is valid, the answer to it depends on two things: 1. Did he have the intention to divorce you prior to this incident; 2. Was he in such a state of anger that he was not aware of the consequences of his actions and words? If  the answer is 'no' to both the above questions, then you are not divorced from him.  For divorce pronounced in a state of extreme anger is not considered as valid-- as ruled by Imams Ibn al-Qayyim and Ibn Abideen. This is based on the tradition, ' there is no valid divorce  in a state of mental blockage.' 

If, therefore, your husband did pronounce the words of divorce in such a state, then you are still considered as married.

Having said this, I should also point out that you need to seek professional marriage counseling to fix your marriage. Perhaps both of you need to learn how to control anger and how to develop communication. You may benefit from reading the book , ' Blissful Marriage: A Practical Islamic Guide by Ekram Beshir'.

Finally, both you should  pray to Allah in the manner Allah teaches the believing spouses to pray:

Rabbanaa hab lanaa min azwaajinaa wa dhurriyyaatinaa qurrata a'yunin waij'alnaa lil muttaqeena imaaman

(Our Lord, grant us joy in our spouses and childr
