Wife allowing the husband to continue with a haraam relationship instead of making nikaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I met a woman and want to make nikaah but my wife is saying that I must not make nikaah with her. I must carrry on meeting her but dont make nikaah. Is this correct for my wife to say that.


A: How can you ask such a stupid question. The prohibition of zina is from Allah. You will abstain from zina not because of your wife.

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