Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Divorce does not occur with these Satanic whisperings, and it does not occur by uttering the word divorce, or writing it for research and question, and so on.

We advise you to avoid these whispers in their totality and not pay any attention to them. You should beware of abundant research and questioning about issues of divorce and its metaphors.

This behavior increases whispers and causes confusion.

Therefore, you should occupy yourself with what benefits you, seek help from Allah, and do not become lazy.

Allah knows best.
