Q: I wanted to ask a question on behalf of a friend. She is married for one and a half years and she has been having marriage problems. Her husband always abuses her. Also her in-laws treat her really badly and when she asked for divorce her husband said that he isn’t going to give her divorce and that he did not want to marry her but now he is going to keep her in his nikaah and he wont free her. This friend was told by someone that she should pray surah Mumtahina 11 times daily for 11 days and after this her husband will divorce her himself. I wanted to ask for her is this true because my friend doesn’t believe in this.
A: We suggest that she refer the problem to the Jamiatul Ulama of her locality and ask them to assist her.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
