How much time can couple live apart

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Respected brother, the one and only thing which terminates the sacred institution of marriage in Islam is the establishment of divorce, or death. Thus absolutely regardless of how much time a husband and a wife bonded in the sacred institution of marriage happen to live apart….be it a few months or several years….it would not effect the validity of their marriage in the absolute least.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
