Are We Still Married Or Divorced?


Assalamu Alaykum Hazrat Mufti sahib,

I would like to ask u something about my marital issue. I got married in 2004 in Pakistan but I don’t have any marital/physical relations with my wife since 2006. She sent me an affidavit in 2010 which stated that I can meet my son anytime n we are divorced. I sent that affidavit to home office in 2011 and 2012 along with a witness statement which stated that my marriage has been broken down in Pakistan and I also mentioned about that affidavit from my wife. I signed under this sentence ” The contents of this witness statement are true to the best of my knowledge and belief” I just want to know that if we r still married or divorced after all this happening?

please reply me with ur kind advice, thx a lot Jazak Allah. Allah Hafiz


Wa alaykum asalaam,

You both are still married.
Consult the scholar of your region to show you how to declare a divorce
decree verbally with all the conditions available, there are few conditions
mentioned in the book of law of A.A. S. Ali ALSISTANI DZ.

if those conditions are not met, the decree of divorce will be invalid.
If you don’t know the conditions please let us know.
