Husband communicating with his ex-wife

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am very stressed just wanted to know mufti. You the only person I know who can tell me what is right and what is wrong Islamicly. My husband is continuously communicating with his X wife and he hides what they discuss. When I ask, he says we are talking about the children and yet the last born of their kids is almost 25 years of age. So all four kids are big enough to come or call their father and talk to him themselves so why should he still talk to his X yet he told me I am not allowed to communicate with my X and ever since I do not talk to him but he says he needs to speak to his X. It hurts Mufti. I feel like I am nothing. What can I do?


A: This is not right. If he needs to discuss anything regarding his children then it should be via a third person (e.g. His ex-father in law or ex brother in law, etc.). We suggest that you refer the problem to an Aalim who knows your husband and will be able to correct him and advise him. 

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