My online boyfriend is treating me like I’m worthless

My online boyfriend is calling me names and treating me like I am worthless after we committed zina.

Family guilting and beating me for fighting for my rights.

When I tried to tell my dad not to touch me very calmly and respectfully, my sisters all turned to me and said “It’s okay…he’s my dad and can do whatever he wants.”

My parents refused him my hand but he keeps bothering me; I am extremely stressed.

I love my parents but they do not want to even hear his mention, ever. And as a human being, I do not want his life to be in vain and wasted in this horrible manner. I fear for my honour and my family’s. I am in extreme distress.

Boyfriend threatens to expose our relationship to my parents; ruin my life and career.

Within one month of knowing each other, we got together as courting couple. It was my first time. It was him who wanted, and I was reluctant at the start, but followed him. Between me and him, we had already started to talk about settling down next year. He likes to threaten me, saying that he will meet my parents and blurt out everything about what we have done. e also said that he will ruin my career and will create havoc at my workplace. I feel like, all these are happening because I didn’t take care of myself well; I caused shame to my parents I did what they forbid us to do.

Husband gets angry over small things, need help with marriage.

I am muslimah. I have been married for 5 years. It is a love marriage. I don’t know what else to say about my marriage except that I have been crying my eyes out so often these years. I don’t know where to start. I used to think that I was so lucky to have found a man who adores me and loves me for who I am. But things turned sour after the marriage…

I had Haram relationships with a boy; who threatens to disclose it to my family

Every time we saw each other we did something sexual, I regret it so much and hope that Allah will forgive me and my family for what I did Insha Allah. I have made up my mind that I don’t want to marry any of these guys (my cousin and the boy I have been seeing for 5 years). But now, the kid I have been seeing for 5 years is very upset and will not leave me alone.

Father abusive behaviour toward family and difficulty in finding a decent proposal for sister.

My mother is not given her right to say anything in major issues of family and part of the reason of my sister not getting married is the interference from my aunts (father’s sisters). The reason is that my aunt wants to give her daughter to my brother. She probably views my sister as a thorn in her daughter’s side.

I lost consciousness and someone abused me.

I recently converted to Islam Alhamdullilah and Insha Allah I am going to get married to a wonderful man, whom is brother of my best friend’s husband. My problem is that I am not a virgin and don’t know if I should tell him or not? Before I converted to Islam; I never had a boyfriend or anything like that; I never dated but I was going through a terrible time at home.
