Q: I hope you are doing great. I am a 24 year old boy. I am in this haraam relationship with a girl for more than 5 years now. I have tried many times to end this relationship but every time I end up going back to it. This relationship is effecting me in every bad way. Wasting my time on phone, chatting, sending pictures and what not. Lately I am so immersed in this that I do nothing without wasting time with her. I have no feelings while praying or studying. I only think of her. Please pray for me and suggest me how can I end this Haram relationship?
A: For the sake of Allah Ta`ala everything should be and must be sacrificed. Though the relationship is very thick, but the relationship with Allah Ta`ala is the greatest. Hence, for his sake you should separate from her even if you have to use some vulgar languages and impolite and aggressive words to break away from her.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
