Pearl of Wisdom

'A delay in response should not dishearten you, for verily the grant [from Allah] is proportional to [the sincerity of] your intention, and may be the response has been delayed in order for it to be a greater reward for the one who asked and a greater bestowal for the hopeful one, or may be you asked for something and it was not given to you and instead you are to be granted something better sooner or later, or it may have been kept away from you for your own good, for many a matter that you ask for would be detrimental to your religion [and faith] if it were to be given to you.?

Question : #218 Category: Divorce / Talaq
Subject: civil divorce and islamic ruling
Question: A civil divorce, according to the law of a western country, took place. The husband is adamant not to grant his wife a shari'i divorce, does not provide maintenance for her and not accept mediation.

What should the woman do, noting that her patience would certainly wear thin and, eventually, put her in an untenable situation (haraj)?
Answer: She should seek redress with the Marji' or his deputy. He would advise the husband to choose one of two courses of action: Either pay his wife maintenance money or grant her Islamic divorce, albeit by proxy. Should he chose neither, and that it was not possible to pay maintenance money, the Marji' or his deputy should carry out the divorce.
