Does it effect the nikaah if the spouses do not have relations?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Due to our daughter’s illness, all our concentration were on her health as she has by birth problem. Me and my wife didn’t perform any husband and wife activity since last three years as we are more worried about our daughter’s condition and her health. For not performing any action of husband and wife, is there any effect on our Nikaah? All we did is mutually agreed. Please advise.


A: This has no effect on your nikaah. Your nikaah is intact.

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