Q: My husband has decided to separate from me for two months. I am staying with my mum. What are the rules of separation. I have tried calling my husband to speak to him. Is this permissible? He doesn’t want to answer. I think he is under the impression that we’re not allowed to have any contact with one another.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
