Tag Archive for ‘domestic abuse’
My husband was abusive… By asking for a khula I know I made my son an orphan but I had no choice…
I am in love with my maternal aunt. We both have same feelings for each other.
He started hitting me after marriage and he’s never sorry – always blame me. I am so depressed and sick of my awful life…
It’s been going on for 5 months and I’ve started having anxiety attacks when he would beat me.
I am deathly afraid of moving to Palestine with him because I am afraid he is going to get worse.
I have now told him that I cannot take anymore but he just laughs at me and tells me if I leave him he will kill me and the children, which I believe he is capable of. He has tried to rape me.
I performed dua Istikharah (to seek Allah’s Counsel), about if I should divorce from an abusive man.
Should I leave him now? Even when he gets mad at my daughter he hits her really badly… She isn’t even seven years old yet… But when he looses his anger there seems nothing but Allah who can stop the rage.
He has been cruel both physically, emotionally, verbally… I cannot live a life where I hate my husband.
I’m stuck in thinking am I being selfish that I’m leaving him when he needs support and help the most from me…?
