Sms sent by husband

Question ID: 29620

Salaams Respected Mufti Saheb

I pray that you are in the best of health.

I have a problem and I wish to seek your advice.

During Ramadhaan last year I received the following as an sms on my mobile phone (please excuse the language): [SMS REMOVED]

My husband later told me that it was he who sent this sms. My husband often tells me that I’m no longer his wife. Is thisregarded as talaaq? If so, what do I do? I have 2 kids and I have nowhere else to go.(Yesterday when I reminded him of whathe said he denied saying that I’m no longer his wife). He always threatens me and this week he said that I’m in for a bigsurprise.

We were seperated before but I was forced to come back because my little one was starving herself because of our seperation.
My dad told me that if I go back to my husband then he would disown me, which is why I have nowhere to go. How does a woman
choose between her parents and her kids?

My husband leaves the home at 5:30 am everyday and only returns at 10:30 pm. Everyday my husband curses me, saying that I
must die. He once said that he would send men in the house to rape and kill me. I am living in fear and have nowhere to go
and no one to turn to. My husband abuses me verbally and physically and also swears and insults the kids. This is affecting
my kids in a negative way and my little one learnt to swear because of him. I’m very unhappy to live like this but if he
divorces me, I have nowhere to go. What can I do? I don’t want to live with him anymore, I want out.

Please advise

The SMS is absolutely disgusting. (So we have deleted it). If he intends divorce by his statement then one divorce falls. Otherwise nothing. Seek marriage counseling.
