Committing zina with one’s aunts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. If someone had unlawful relations more than one time with his married paternal aunts (father’s sisters) and married maternal aunt (mother’s sister), not the actual zina, but perhaps hurmat is established. What is the status of his aunts’ marriages?

2. Also how to repent for these actions?



1. Their marriages are still valid.

2. Apart from begging Allah Ta`ala for forgiveness, keep cautioning people about the areas where they could easily slip and stumble.

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