Divorcing husband due to substance abuse

Question ID: 27448

Asssalamu alaikum mufti.
I am currently married for 11years and in the nikkah my husband started abusing all types of drugs and alcohol, mufti in the process he has been hurting me emotionally and he has accused me of not being a muslim and that i obey other than ALLAH. I hate so much i cant stand him anymore whenever we have a chat he looks at me in such a manner as if i am his enemy.. he has accused me of using african harbs and that i bewitched him. These are very hectic accusations for me and therefore it will never be easy for me to be in the nikkah like this it has destroyed my imaan, i cant think i hate him so much. Can i divorce him because he says he will never do it. I need to be free from all this trauma for the sake of my imaan. Jazakallah.

Take your case to your local Jamiat.
They will ask more questions to ascertain whether you have right of dissolution.
