About 2 years ago my husband told me that he will divorce me. Than 2 months back in extreme anger he said in one breath that he divorces me and he divorces me.
I asked a local Mufti sahib he said that two divorces has been done but he can come back to me with in three months. I went to my parents and stayed with them for a month. After coming back he took me back and we stayed as husband and wife for a few weeks. Now I am very confused as he has in the past said sentences like "you are nobody to me and you are not my wife."He has also sent an e-mail to his nephew that that the marriage is over after we had fight. I have asked him if he meant it . He says that he didnot mean to divorce me when he said those things.

Please let me know if the nikah is still valid?

In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Your nikah is valid. The answer from your local Mufti
Saheb is correct. Two divorces have taken place.

Sentences like, "you are nobody to me and
you are not my wife." only necessitate divorce if a
husband makes an intention of divorce which in your
husband's case was not made.

And Allah knows Best
Wa Alaykumussalaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
