Q: I am married for almost three years and its mostly been unpleasant. My husband verbally abuses me. He insults me, my family and late husband all the time. He also has a drinking issue. I have three kids from my previous marriage. I was a widow. I would like talaq as I cannot continue under these circumstances. I am financially independent and he does not do much for me or my kids. I would like to know how I should go about obtaining Talaaq as a female. These conditions are not healthy for my kids well being. I would also like to keep the house which he insists that I sell as he will not leave. Please advise.
A: We advise that you refer your problem to an Islamic body or the Jamiat of your locality and ask them to assist you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
