Assalamualaykum, I hope u can help me with this question. My husband has recently left me to go abroad for medical treatment for his illness. Now he tells me through a text message that he no longer wants to be with me or come back to me. But he has not said the proper words "talaq" and when I called him and asked him to be clear he was vague and now I feel like I am waiting in the dark. I do not want a divorce, I believe we can work through this difficult time inshallah. We have been married for 4 years and before he left we have been arguing constantly. And also he mentioned he was unhappy that I did not lose weight. Now he won't answer my calls and I want to be there for him but he did not give me his address overseas. Does this mean I am divorced the Islamic way or is there a waiting period for 3 or 4 months? My heart is in so much pain. Please provide me with some guidance and answers as I know it is a huge sin for divorce but if does not want me then he has to let me go in the proper way but I still love him.
