I had an affair, please advise


Dear Shaykh,

I am married but I had an affair. I do not love my wife anymore but I don’t know how to tell her.

What should I do? Please advise me.

Shukran and Salaams


Beat yourself over the head with a large stick. The punishment of the hereafter for adulterers is much, much worse. Prepare yourself to be betrayed as you have betrayed. The shaytan who inspired you to act has worse yet in store for you. But if a desire for repentance enters your mind, and regret for your mistake, then maybe the door of reconciliation is still open because Allah has not exposed you yet. The love you say is gone may just be behind that door.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
