Husband swearing that his wife must take the contraceptive pills and if she becomes pregnant, he will divorce her

Q 5: A man swore by Allah that his wife must use contraceptive pills and that if she ever becomes pregnant, he will divorce her. (Part No. 20; Page No. 186) It is noteworthy to mention that the couple has young children. What is the ruling on this and what should be done? The wife fears divorce will take place if she ignores her husband's instructions.

A: This is not regarded as divorce, but rather it is a threat of divorce. If she does not use the pills, her husband must make Kaffarah (expiation) for an oath, and his wife will not be divorced. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
