so what happened is they tried hit it over to us but doenst go over. While the birdie is still on their side, my racket touches it under the net before it hits the ground on their side of the court.

sounds to me like it should be a fault...? your racquet shouldn't be crossing the net in any case, over or under.

No it's not a fault.
Just to clarify the over or under:
It is a fault if a player
13.4.2 invades an opponent’s court over the net with racket or person except that the striker may follow the shuttle over the net with the racket in the course of a stroke after the initial point of contact with the shuttle is on the striker’s side of the net;
13.4.3 invades an opponent’s court under the net with racket or person such that an opponent is obstructed or distracted
but you cannot have a fault if the shuttle is already out of play
15. SHUTTLE NOT IN PLAY
A shuttle is not in play when:
15.1 it strikes the net or post and starts to fall towards the surface of the court on the striker’s side of the net;
Therefore in this particular instance, because the shuttle hit the net and has already started to fall the shuttle is no longer in play and you cannot commit a fault.

If the attempted drop shot hits the net or post before you hit the shuttle, then it's not a fault, as the shuttle will have stopped being in play the moment it touched the net or post.
If the attempted drop shot did not touch the net or post, then the shuttle is still in play until it hits the floor and you would have commited a fault by striking the shuttle.

the shuttle did not hit the net first

1) if the shutlle was still in play, what means it has not touched the net before it started falling towards the floor, it is yr opponents point
2) if the shuttle has first touched the net and then starts to fall towards the floor, it is yr point, as the shuttle was no longer in play
