In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If you got married, then your Nikah is valid. If you are not happy in the marriage, you should discuss this with your parents and seek their counsel on how to address the issue. It may be useful to seek the guidance of a scholar in your area and present to him your feelings. He will address you accordingly.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
