Marital Problem

Q: A friend of ours daughter got married exactly a year ago to date ,three weeks ago we learned that the daughter landed in hospital with serious injuries, it came to light that her husband was beating her up from day one and never told a soul not even her own parents. She was released from hospital a week ago and went to stay with an uncle of the family, the husband telephoned his battered wife at her uncles house informing her that his family is in their flat search through their clothes. A couple a days ago the girls parents received some of her stuff via freight services and a letter attached to the goods stating that their son has given the girl a talaq. It is believed that the boys family is rich and they took all the best stuff belonging to the girl for them, they threaten that the girl no longer has any right to see or talk to the so call ex husband, the young lady several times called her husband on his mobile and at his work place. Everybody seems to play with saying that no such person works there. The husband did not issue any talaq but the boys parents did and they are all so called pious persons with long white beards,white thobs on. The girls mother is devastated and the young wife wants to be with her husband, it was brought to our attention that the boys mother had another girl in mind and was not happy with her sons choice. Can this really be Muslims doing such evil things? What can this young wife do please advise urgently?​

A: We advise that they refer their case to a pious, senior Aalim who deals with marital problems. Preferably a senior experienced Aalim who the husband and wife both can agree upon.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.
