Woman threatening to commit suicide

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My friend had affair with a married girl for 5 to 6 years. Now he wants to leave that bad affair and wants to come on Allah’s path and leave all bad habits, but the girl wants him to continue that affair otherwise she will go for suicide. What should he do? Will this be counted as a sin because he is hurting her by breaking their bad affair? What should he do?


A: No. Living with a woman without nikaah is a far greater sin.

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