Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Your question is not clear to us. It is more appropriate for you to orally ask one of the scholars in your country and clarify to him what had really happened, or for your husband to clarify the matter to him.

In general, divorce is in the hand of the husband and not the wife. Therefore, if your husband did not divorce you, then the bond of marriage is still abiding (valid).

If there is any doubt as to whether or not your husband has divorced you, then in principle the bond of marriage is still abiding (valid).

Allah knows best.
