Assalamu aleykum,
Iím in a desperate situation.. The following happened to me: my husband was in a really bad mood and kicked me and my child out of the house a month ago.. We had to move to my parentsí house where me and my kid are currently staying. He hurt me a lot during our life together and when he kicked us out it was the last drop for me, he never cared about me and kid, if we are alive, healthy, if we need anything, he never even provided for usÖ I definitely didnít want to go back to him after all the bad things he did and I asked to give me talaqÖ Finally he did it while we were chatting on Skype but in several hours he wrote the following: I revoke my divorce, you are still my wifeÖ My question is: If I donít want him and Iím definitely not going back can he revoke divorce without my agreement? If he can than logically how it can work if all the same Iím physically not going back to him and he canít force me to do so? Me and my parents are against of this marriage. Unfortunately Iím living in non muslim country and I donít have an opportunity to apply to Islamic court and donít have money to apply to Islamic court abroad. Since my husband wrote ďtalaqĒ Iíd like to consider that Iím divorced since I never had an intention of going back. Please clarify this situation for me, can I consider myself divorced?
Jazak Allahu alkheir.
