Q: Is it permissible for a Muslim male to divorce his wife without any reason ?

A.
The Hadeeth mentions that divorce is the worst of permissible acts. (Kanzul Ummaal V9 P661). Shari'ah even frowns upon a person who divorces for flimsy reasons, so imagine if a person divorces his wife for no reason. This will definitely be sinful and such a person will have to answer in the Divine court. The throne of Allah shudders when a person divorces his wife (Kanzul Ummaal). A person who divorces with no reason is inviting the wrath of Allah Ta'aala. Shaytaan becomes very happy when a man divorces his wife. (Kanzul Ummaal). Divorcing without reason will be even more pleasing to him.
