How do you divorce in Islam?
Hi, I would like to know how do you divorce in Islam. I married at mosque with my husband in the Islamic way I think its called Nikah, we got a written contract that we both signed and indicated we were married at mosque.
We had a difficult marriage and one day my husband told me that he threw the paper away in one of those arguments. Anyways, anytime we had a fight he would tell me that we were not married that he divorced me, but I don´t know much how you actually divorce in Islam.
One day he told me that all he had to do was tell 2 people that he divorced me and so he did to his friends, people I don´t even know. We stayed together for 2 more years after that. Just a couple months ago he said it was over and never came back. I assume he got involved with somebody else. He used to ask me to let him have another wife to make his family happy, but I would never allow that and I told him that Islam says that as his wife I have to be ok with him marrying somebody else, otherwise, if I'm not ok that other marriage is not legal in Islam. So, he cut all contact with me and didn´t even talk to me for us to end the relationship in a decent way.
I imagine he is trying to remarry and pretend nothing happened. But my question is how do you actually divorce in Islam and if he will commit haraam by marrying somebody else right now, knowing that we didnt end up the proper way. I mean he did this before of going away to his family whenever we had a fight and didn´t contacted me or answered my calls.
But we always came back together, I imagine many couples have their fights but how do you actually divorce in Islam?
