Haraam relationship

Q: I want to discus my friend’s problem. She loved a guy truly. She even on his demand exchanged body pictures. Now her boyfriend wants her to leave him. She came to know his reality that he was just using her. After that she repented a lot about exchanging pictures. She cries every night and asks Allah for forgives. That boy is now telling her that he didn’t see any pictures and she may move on and select a better guy for marriage but in real he saw every picture. Now according to Islam should she leave that boy or repent whole life and don’t marry anyone else or should she ask that boy to marry her? She is very worried. She even thinks about suicide. Please help. What is the solution now?


A: She should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for what has happened and make a firm resolve that she will not repeat this in the future. She should ask her parents to look for a suitable pious partner for her to get married to.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
