Q: I am married. I am not in love with my husband. I dont wish to be with him anymore. I dont want to hurt him but I want to leave him. He has noticed changes in my behaviour and I did mention that I dont want to be with him. He threatens me and I feel forced to be with him. What is the easiest way forward for me?
If this is not possible, then discuss the matter with your parents. After discussing the matter with your parents, if you feel that you will not be able to manage to remain in the nikaah, then respectfully ask your husband to divorce you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
