Demanding Divorce

Q:

My husband is the cruel man from the very first day he starts beating me. He was already married before but he didn’t inform me before nikkah. Now I have been living separately since last two years and do not want to go with him I demanded divorce but he is not willing to do so. I do not want to go to court please guide me that in this situation after how much time divorce will be considered applicable.

A:

Salaam Alaykum,

If you have decided that you cant live with your husband,for divorce you’ll have refer to a religous authority (hakime shar’a) in your city; an aalim or a represantative of a marja.
Discuss your issue with him, he has the authority to get your divorce if he finds your case genuine.
