Wife has been cheating me by having relationship with someone else


Assalam O Alaikum,

I am a married person and 3 children. My question is that for the last 18 months my wife has been cheating me by having relationship with someone else even she had given money and jewelry without informing me. I had caught her with red handed and at last she accepted her mistake. But I am in big doubt about her character and how should I confirm that she had not commited ZINNA ?? ( that person came into my house and she went her into his house) She is regret but how could I believe as she was deceiving and lying me for long.

Kindly guide me in this regards.


Salaamun alaykum

Thank you for your email.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.
I have to say you are the only one who can make the best decision for your life, because you can take all aspects into consideration and then make the most sensible decision.
The thing to keep in mind is that we are all humanbeings and can make mistakes, but once we realise our mistake, we should not repeat it. As for your wife, if she is sincerely regretting her actions, you can try giving her another chance, atleast for the sake of your children.
You should analyse your situation and see the positives and negatives and then take a decision. We should ask Allah (swt) to help us take the best decisions which are good for us in this world and the hereafter. Ilaahi aameen.
