My husband and I were divorced in an English Court. He and his family are adamannt that on receiving the decree absolute, we were also islamically divorced, although the word ‘talaaq’ has never been mentioned. Is the nikah stilly valid?
Since we are not aware of the divorce procedure in England, we suggest you forward your question to Mufti Ismail Kachholvi at Tel/Fax UK-01274-822538
