Q: I asked my husband for a divorce and he refuses to give me it. He told me to leave. He doesn’t support the kids and I. We’ve been arguing alot and he was making threats. Can a family member issue the divorce or do I have to seek advice and counsel elsewhere? I am mentally and emotionally lost.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
