Nasihah (Advice): With regards to the treatment of the wife, Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: And treat them (your wives) in a good manner. If you dislike them, then it is quite likely that you dislike something and Allah has placed a lot of good in it (Surah an-Nisaa, Verse: 19)

(Query published as received)
A. A female has the option of offering her Mahr or a sum of money to her husband in lieu of a Talaaq. If the husband accepts this arrangement, one irrevocable divorce will take place and the marriage will terminate.
This is a mutual agreement between the husband and wife known as Khul’ and should be facilitated under the guidance of a reputable Alim.
If the husband refuses and does not cooperate after exhausting efforts to reconcile, she may request for a dissolution of her marriage at her local Jamiat.
