Q: I had a second marriage recently on 31 Jan. I had no relationship with my wife till now because I got to know that she had not taken proper talaq from her first husband. Talaq is just on a plain paper written by her husband that I give u talaq. There there is no sign of a Qazi or advocate. So now I want to ask u if my marriage is valid or not? Our marriage was done by a Qazi. What should I do now?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
