Jamaat and automatic divorce

Question ID: 27674

Slms Mufti

I chatted to an aalimah yesterday who informed me that her objection to the “tabligh” activity of going for jamaat for periods of time longer than 4 months was that there is divorce in the instance that a husband has not been with his wife for a period of more than 4 months. Is there an automatic divorce ?

Please provide an indication of what time frames are acceptable for men going on jamaat and what is the authority for this activity in islam as some men make a habit of going away for at least 4 – 6 months every year?

No, the 'Aalimah' perhaps was not focussed.

To go out in the path of Allaah is very good. Depending on for how long both can stay away they can decide.
