Q: I was at my parents home for a meal function and there where guests there. My husband started swearing at me and said I must come home with him immediately. I said I will come after the function is over, as it is rude to just leave abruptly for no reason. On 3 occasions he told me ‘come now or don’t come/if you don’t come now then stay here for good’. What does this mean? He does lie often, so if I ask him if it meant talaq he can lie and say no even if he did mean it at that time.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
