Maintenance after talaaq

Question ID: 26591


My husband gave me 1 talaaq and asked me to leave his home. He was aware that I was in my menses and when I told him it’s not advisable to do so he said he knows his Islamic law. I am now serving Iddat out of his home but he has not given a cent of maintenance for our 2 sons who are 3 & 7 years old. Neither has he maintained me.

1) Is he supposed to maintain us?

2) Was he supposed to Islamically tell me to leave our matrimonial home?

Please advise. JazakaAllaah.

1) During the Iddat period he has to provide for you and your two sons. After the Iddat period it is his responsibility to provide for your two sons.

2) With the view of a possible reconciliation, it is advisable to spend the Iddat in the matrimonial home.
