Husband not returning wife’s belongings after divorce

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My husband divorced me not long ago. It’s 2 divorces and I finished my iddah. He hasn’t given me my stuff back; none of my gold that my parents gave me. I asked him and he doesn’t want to give it. I have asked his parents and they have ignored my messages. What can I do?


A: It is your right and you can take any action to recover your wealth.

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