Can you please do an istikhara for me because I want to leave my husband. We have been having a lot of problems for the the last 3 years and he has another wife and children from her. He never gives me time or does not care about me. He is ruled by this other woman. I have made it clear to him that I don’t want her in my home as she lives with his parents but he constantly brings her to my home as well and expects me to live in the same house sometimes. My name is [private] and my mother’s name is [private] and my husband’s name is [private] and his mums name is [private]. Can you please keep our names secret. please pray for me for Allah to show me a path where I will have my self respect.
Shari`a gives you the right to ask for talaq because it is your right to have your own dwelling and he cannot bring to it another wife unless you give your consent. Try to reason with him and remind him of your rights and his duties. Let him get her her own space.
