Ask an Alim

Does an adulterer need to ask forgiveness from womans husband?

Q:

If a person has committed zina with a married woman and then slandered me, do i need to ask forgiveness from her husband? Or just making a sincere tawbah is sufficient for forgiveness

A:

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your question. 
 
No he doesn’t need to ask forgiveness from her husband. 
 
Kind regards,
