Engaged for a Year, Betrayed on Mobile: My Confusion and Regret

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I had been engaged for one year and I just talked to my fiancee on mobile and crossed every limit on mobile. She left me after one year and got married immediately to her bhaabi’s brother. I saw her after her marriage, she came before me on my call in front of her family. She said that she told her parents that she did not agree to the engagement but her mother said she is lying and her bhaabi had put black magic on her. I am very much confused and upset and can’t forget the talks we had. I just want to know that

1. Did she really love that boy?

2. Maybe she loved that boy and me as well but she left me because of my behaviour or may be she and that boy had something between them.

3. I also want to apologise to her in front of her family as well.


A: Don’t pay attention to all of this. Continue with your life and make taubah for all your conversations with her before marriage. This is one way Shaitaan adopts to mislead people. He creates doubts in their minds and puts them in a state of confusion. The girl is already married. Hence, it is not permissible for you to have any involvement with her.

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