Approximately eight years ago, in order to resolve differences which had
arisen as a result of my wife meeting with my brother's wife, I swore
to her that if she went to my brother's house, she would be divorced. My
aim in doing this was to restrain her and make her afraid, and it was
never my aim to sever (marital) ties. My wife continued not to go mt
brother's house until something happened which compelled her to do so,
which was the death of my father. This occurred while I was out of the
country. The place to which the women came to express their condolences
was my brother's house, so my wife found no alternative to going there,
regardless of any other matter. So when I returned to the country, she
informed me of that and asked me to seek legal verdict from the scholars
in this matter. This I put my question to Your Eminence, hoping that
you will make clear the following:
Is she guilty of any sin by her going in this situation?
What is incumbent upon me, since I have swore to divorce her?
What is incumbent upon her?
And finally you have me esteem and honor.
