Ask an Alim

7 Year without Physical Intercourse (Married Life)


Assalam o alaikum, I want to ask there is situation that a husband and a wife didn’t or couldn’t physically intercourse with each other for a long time (due to any illness or any other reason) so is there any possibility that Nikah will be canceled after 7 years?


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question.
Kindly refer to the link below,
Other than that, the marriage is in place.
As long as they are having an understanding with one another, and they are not able to help this situation the marriage is in place and has no problem.
But if one is suppressing the right of the other, the case is different and needs further asking

Kind regards
