Q: I have question about divorce in Islam.
Is it haram in Islam if a husband divorces his wife because they live in different country and he can’t bring the wife due to visa reason? My husband studies in Australia, and we have problem about bringing me to Australia. We have been living separately for 1,5 year. He said to me that he will divorce me if my Australian visa get rejected. He prefers divorce to visiting me if I can’t get the visa this year. I want to know if this reason can be used to divorce a wife according to Islam?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
