A man in love with a married woman and wanting to marry her

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

A man in love with a married woman and wanting to marry her

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

First and foremost you should stop talking to this woman immediately as she is unlawful for you. You should not be thinking or contemplating a future with her as she is in somebody else’s Nikah.

Allah (SWA) says in the Holy Qur’an:

Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (slaves) whom your right hands possess.” (Surah Nisa v.24)

This contemplation is nothing but Shaitan trying to lead you astray. Allah (SWA) has said, “Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents, that they may become Companions of the Blazing Fire.” (Surah Fatir v.6)

Only Allah Knows Best
