Several US courts
, including at least one court in Virginia in particular, have held that Islamic marriages without license or ceremony are contrary to the US laws and contrary to public policy, so many US courts will not recognize the marriage itself as a civilly legal marriage, even though religiously it is a valid marriage under Muslim rules.
So, according to US laws, if the marriage is contrary to public policy, it is void and does not exist under US laws, especially if the woman was sold into marriage or placed into marriage without their consent in accordance with the Muslim or Islamic laws. What the courts have upheld, in accordance with US Contract laws are any mahr entered into.
Unfortunately, what this means to you in the US that is if you wish to marry under US law with a marriage license or you wish to claim he is not your legal husband in the US you can do so, but if you ever plan on returning to your country or anywhere under Islamic law recognizing that type of marriage you would have a problem
There is no other way to dissolve this other than returning to your country to fight there for the dissolution from him.
You can also go to court and get a court restraining order against him for harassment and have him ordered to stop contacting you. This you would have to file for in the state where he lives and could do so with a local attorney there.
