Husband controlling his divorced wife’s life

Q: Is it allowed in Islam for ex-husband and his mates still control his ex-wife’s life and prevent her to marry for example another man from his country? If not, what to do in this kind of situations?


A: This is haraam and totally impermissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
