Cheating on one’s wife

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I cheated with my wife by sleeping with another women. My wife came to know about it. She says if I say it’s true then she wants talaaq. Should I lie to her that it’s not true and continue with our marriage or should I tell her the truth.


A: Yes, you may tell her it is not true.

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