In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

As-salaamu `alaykum wa-ramatullahi wa-barakatuh.

We take note of the contents of your mail.

You mention your wife used to argue with you for every small thing. When a person argues or is irritated by something, there should be a reason behind it. In order to find a solution of a problem, the first step is to find out the cause of the problem. Perhaps there are shortcomings from your side.

You further mention that you tried contacting her but she insulted you. We advise you to go her parents’ house and discuss the issue with her parents.

The separation between both of you does not constitute divorce. However, it is not proper for both you to be separated without addressing the problem.

You should seek the assistance of Allah through salaah, dua and zikr.

And Allah Ta`ala Knows Best.

Hussein Muhammad.
