Secret Facebook Account

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I have concerns that I have found my husband has a secret Facebook account that does not say he is married. Although he is the the most lovely kind husband my intuition is on the alert. What should I do?

A: We advise that you heed your intuition and consider this matter serious. For your husband to state on Facebook that he is not married is incorrect and is an open invitation to trouble. In fact it is wrong for him to have a Facebook account in the first place. You should bring this matter up with him and express your concern. Object to him having a secret Facebook account and to stating that he is unmarried. If he really is the kind and lovely husband you say he is, then he will respect your feelings and move to allay your fears. I can assure you that if you leave this matter, it will escalate into something bigger, Allah forbid!!

Allah protect you and him from all types of fitnah and evil, aameen
