Father committing zina with niece

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My father is in a relationship with his brothers daughter (which is haraam). We came to know this two years back…when we confronted him…he left us…he is not ready to leave her…he is committing zina. Last two years he is not in contact with anyone from the family…in these circumstances what is to be done? Is the nikaah still valid between my mother and father? When he left he said that he will send papers to my mother…but till today there is no single word from my father… He is not accepting halal relationship?


A: The nikaah is still valid. There is no doubt that he is in haraam.

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