Ask an Alim

If a person had relationship with his sister in law, does that result for the nikkha with his wife to be broken


If a person does sex with his sister in law,his wife would be banned(haram) and  would the nikkha be broken??


Wa alaykum salam

Thank you for your question.

The wife does not become haram for the person nor does  the nikah become batil.

But the man and the sister have committed a haram act and need to do istighfar for this.

Actions made haram by Allah, is due to the negative effects  they have in people’s lives.

We should always keep in mind that by indulging in haram acts a person will never  be able to reach contentment and felicity….neither in this world nor in the hereafter.

And also, our  actions do not only effect our lives but have a strong effect on people around us.

Therefore for a better and peaceful life , its important to abide to the rules of Islam.
