Wife committing zina

Q: My wife had sex with one of her contacts. She slept with him on the first time they decided to meet at his place and she only chatted with him for a month. They slept twice together on different days. She always promised me she will never have sex with another man even after the time she had sex with him for the first time. She use to tell me it’s her cousin and convinced me with tears in her eyes that how can I suspect her with her cousin, so I believed her. When I thought I don’t like this chats that she and her so called cousin had, I deleted his contact then she hit me and threw tantrims telling me it’s just her cousin. But I found out it wasn’t and they had sex twice. So my question is, it wise to let her go work after all the lies and deceit and betrayal? Must I trust her promises and word this time? I mean if she found it easy to sleep with a stranger what about someone at work or someone she travels with. Please advise me.


A: When you are certain that she is betraying then it is just but natural that you employ some precautionary measures. How can you allow this type of indecency to continue when you have evidence that this is actually happening.

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