    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 60/67/N=01/1435) According to the preferable saying of Hanafi Fiqh, talaq given in drunken state takes place as well. Hence in the question mentioned above, all the three talaqs given in drunken state took place and she became haram for her husband. Now she is no more halal for her husband without a Shariah halalah. قال فى الدر (مع الرد كتاب الطلاق 4: 438-436 ط مكتبة زكريا ديوبند): ويقع طلاق كل زوج بالغ عاقل ولو تقديراً بدائع ليدخل السكران ولو بنبیذ او حشیش او افیون او بنج زجراً، به يفتى، تصحيح القدوری اهـ وقال الله تعالى: فإن طلقها فلا تحل له من بعد حتى تنكح زوجا غيره (سوره بقره آيت: 230)، وفى الفتاوى الهندية (1: 473 ط مكتبة زكريا ديوبند): وإن كان الطلاق ثلاثا فى الحرة ..... لم تحل له حتى تنكح زوجا غيره نكاحا صحيحا ويدخل بها ثم يطلقها أو يموت عنها كذا فى الهداية اهـ
