(Part No. 19; Page No. 394)
Fatwa no. 5505
Q: What is the ruling on a wife asking her husband to divorce her for no reason? She is a second wife, and she lives in an separate apartment where no one annoys her. She is now pregnant in her fifth month. Is it permissible to divorce her? Since it is she who asked for divorce, would she be entitled to her monetary rights?
A: It is permissible to divorce a pregnant woman. As for a woman asking for divorce without a reason, it is forbidden. In the Hadith reported on the authority of Thawban (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If any woman asks her husband for divorce without a strong reason, the odor of Paradise will be forbidden to her. (Recorded by Abu Dawud and Al-Tirmidhy) As for alimony, it should be based on the court's decision, in case you don't reach mutual consent.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
