Fatwa no. 1196
Q: A husband was told that his wife frequently visits his uncle's house and they feel uneasy about that. Subsequently, he took an oath that if she went to his uncle's house again, she would be irrevocably divorced. However, later he discovered that what was said about his wife's frequent visits to his uncle's house was not true. Now he asks whether the divorce is effective or not.

May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
