Marital problems

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Me and my wife entered into nikaah almost 3 months ago. At the time of nikaah she accepted me as her husband in front of more than 100 family members. Our date of marriage was fixed in February 2017 but unfortunately during her stay at her home in these three months, misunderstandings grew and she is now not willing to live with me. I really want to carry on the nikaah and do not want divorce. What should I do according to the teachings of Quran and Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)?


A: If you feel that you are not compatible and she is also not interested at all then respectfully separate her after consulting your elders.

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