Husband saying "Our nikaah is haraam"

Q: I have been married for 27 years. My husband used to beat me but now his health doesn't allow so he calls names. Recently he crossed the line by saying that our nikaah is haraam and as a result our children are haraam. I am very upset and troubled. He prays 5 times a day and even wakes up for tahajjud. He has read the tafseer and been for hajj and umrah.

A: This behaviour is extremely disgusting. It does not seem that he is reasoning correctly. We suggest that you just ignore him and make du`aa for him. However, it does not construe a divorce.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
