Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is about zina. There is my Muslim friend, his wife is having a sexual relation with another man since one year. Is their nikaah still valid or has it broken? What is the kaffara to get rid of this gunnah?


A: The nikaah remains.

Beg Allah Ta`ala’s forgiveness.

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