Does nikkha become invalid by not arguing with each other…..


Asalam alaykum Wa Rehmatulla Wa Barakatahu,

May ALLAH(SWT) grant us all forgiveness and the good in this world and the good in the hereafter and protect us. Ameen .
I am in urgent need of guidance regarding my married life. I have been married for more than 5 years with no kids. After 2 years our relationship deteriorated but somehow we managed to stay married. We tried for kids but maybe ALLAH(SWT) has better plan for us as even the IVF didnt work.None of us have cheated on each other but it seems we just ended up with this vast space between us and dont know how to fill it up. We have been like this for last couple of years. Even though we live together there is hardly any talk between us. The most we talk is saying Salam to each other. We haven’t been physical either for more than a year.
Recently I was listening to a islamic lecture and found out that actually our nikah could have become invalid. We dont argue or shout but co-exist as strangers, maybe for the sake of our families.
Could you please guide me and give me advice as I am afraid that I am committing a sin living like this ?
JazakAllah Khair


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question

First of, you must know that for a Nikah to be invalidated has to have certain conditions. And by not arguing you don’t invalidate your Nikah.

Since you both are still living together and none has cheated on the other, looks like there is a great future for your relation and only the primary cause of this distance needs to be traced back and removed.
Your current situation can occur for anyone to be honest, and it is upon us, the spouses, and especially women who have the charms and the patience to rev up things in life and refresh.

In short, I may not be able to help a lot because I do not know the reasons as to why this Is happening in the first place but all I can say there is still a lot of hope and you must make the most of this opportunity

InshaAllah alll goes well
