my husband and I got married last month. Things has been going horrible. We fight all the time. He swears at me. Calls me the B word, talks about my mom. And claims I keep him in a box because I don’t like the smoking of weed pens or nicotine. He told me to just kill my self, I’ll die peacefully that way. I really need help from a Muslim now. I want to divorce but I keep going back. We are already doing therapy together and individually and it’s just getting worse. Please help!

As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
May Allāh ease your situation. If at any time you feel threatened or fear for your well-being, please call the 911 immediately. For further guidance on this, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can call the masjid and they can give you my phone number.
Do not despair. Allāh will make a way.
وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجًا
وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ ۚ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ
“Allāh will find a way out for those who are mindful of Him, and will provide for them from an unexpected source; Allāh will be enough for those who put their trust in Him.” (65: 2-3)
والله تعالى أعلم وعلمه أتم وبه التوفيق
And Allāh Taʿālā Knows Best
