  • Question:

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    We are saddened to hear your situation. We pray for your relief and safety.

    No one deserves to be in a violent or abusive relationship. Your husband should seek help through marriage therapy and anger-management classes. If your husband fails to provide for you or you are being abused, you have a right to seek separation and divorce.


    And Allah knows best.
