Wifes past is haunting me


My spouse when she was 15 she had a relationship, that guy did zina with her in the name of love and trust telling her its fine to do this, she was unknown of halal and haram that time due to lack of Islamic environment. Is it her mistake? What she should do now? and her past is haunting me.


Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

You should put this behind you and not allow it to haunt you. It appears from your message that she was unaware of halal and haram and was seduced into something that she did not know was haram.

“[Acceptance of] repentance by Allah is only for those who commit evil out of ignorance and then repent promptly. It is such whose repentance Allah will accept, and Allah is all-knowing, all-wise.”
Surah 4:17

May you live a happy and prosperous life.

S.L. Al-Hakim
