My wife and i seperated under two years ago. She approached lawyers (South Africa) who said that my marriage was not legal in South Africa and I have no rights to my son. I have not issued a talaq and advised her that she should approuch a Imaam as she was the one initiating proceedings. Since then she has still not approached a Imaam.

My husband and I married in 1999. In 2000, he sent 3 divorce letters pronouncing 'talaaq' thrice on three different occasions to me (April 2000), his own father (cannot confirm date) and my father (August 2000).
My husband admitted to me, my family and his own family that he sent each divorce letter, confirming each letter was an original letter and written and signed in the presence of two witnesses each time.
My husband and I re-married again in 2001 after being told by a Maulana/Alim that we could because the marriage had not been consummated. However I have since been advised that a Fatwa can only be given by a Mufti and re-marriage is only allowed on the basis that no privacy/intimacy is observed/experienced during the time of the first Nikah (Khalwate-Saheeha). My husband and I did spend time in privacy and did have relations but did not consummate the marriage (this was not mentioned when the Maulana/Alim was consulted).
Can you please answer the following questions:
1. Was I divorced in April 2000 or August 2000? I have been advised by Muftis' in Bury and London that divorce took place on reciept of the first divorce letter.
2. When should I have observed my Iddat? 3 months from April 2000 or 3 months from August 2000?
3. What is the Islamic Sharia ruling on the above and confirm if the second Nikah is valid?
4. If the second Nikah is not valid does this mean I am still divorced from my first Nikah and have since been living in haraam?
salams i am a busy mother to six children,wear full niqaab i have a ever sex demanding husband,which is very hard at times to make his need fulfil he usually needs fulfilling around 2-3 times a week,sometimes more & sometimes less when i come on my periods it becomes a nightmare for him to deal with,all he wants to do is get in there,my period lasts up to 7 to 10 days. i do come to him & try my best to comfort him but that's not enough,he needs more & wants more,he undresses me & then ends up nearly doing it which in turn i feel very very upset & angry,as i know it is a sin & haram i too get very tired with waking up early morning,sending kids off to school,doing rounds for school & madrassah while he his all day at work,when i come on my period it like a week off for me,but it doesn,t end there,his like wants to caress me all the time and im so not in the mood recently i have avoided him during this period & sleeping away from him i.e not next to him,but he has now found another way to full fill him from his internet mobile where he sees nude photos,he says he has only done it once but i have seen recent dates where he had been on this he is a very decent man i would say & usually i am very aware of him being on the internet ect.i know he can get carried away with his sexual desires & i do ground him very badly when i do find out his been looking at nude stuff over the internet,meaning not talk to him or threaten him to leave because i have alot of hate for people watching nude stuff when you have a wife that gives you everything! i dress up many times at night for him & wear the most skimpiest underwear i can find to please him & look beautiful for him,then why the complain? and now this nude viewing! why i ask? i have asked from allah many times to make his desire a bit less so i can cope with,as i too am a human being & believe it or not all busy mothers sometimes just want a good night sleep after a tiring day please advise
DEAR MUFTI SHAHIB

I just wanted to know that whether we should eat
from chains like chicken-cottage & dixys , which r run by muslims & have
a halal sign at the window.
Because they do something to do with franchising & people say they just care
about profits & not whether the chikens halal or not , & concerning franchising their chickens can be supplied from anywhere such as freemans, eden valley.
Most people say we r allowed to eat from there, cos if they say it's halal but they're
really r not, then it's not our fault.
So should we find out if they're 100% halal or take their word
and eat from there.
