Her marriage life was running normally just like the others and small arguments between the husband wife was going just like others. However in the month of March earlier this year her husband after a argument with her brother and in a fit of rage gives her triple Talaq on the spot which is against the Muslim law.
“My married life was going well and we both had arguments just like the others. However in the month of March my husband called my brother at his home and had heated arguments with them. I lost my parents and my brother is only my family after them. On that day later in the fit of rage my husband said triple Talaq to me and ran away from there. However this is against the Muslim law and the decision shattered my life,” said Habiba.
