Ask an Alim

I am not happy

Q:

Assalam o Alaikum, I got married last year, I was not happy with my marriage but my family told me that with time it will get better but it didn’t. I am not happy at all. I am always worried and due to this, I have not been well since then. I also had a miscarriage due to these worries and ill health. I am afraid of him, He sometimes also beat me on things like I felt sleep before he came home. or I called my sister or even I was sitting with his family for more than 10 to 15 minutes. In a nutshell I am mostly in my room alone. In these circumstances, Can I demand a divorce from him? plus please enlighten me on this from Quran and Hadith. Jazak Allah

Waalykum salam

Thank you for your question.

You must seek some immediate help with your situation.
It is abnormal for a husband to treat his wife in the way he is treating you. Although, you haven’t mentioned what the real problem is, in any case no one should be going through domestic violence.

Kindly get help.
Hope all goes well with you

Kind regards,
