Assalam ul laikum Honourables,
I have been married for 13 years. I have known another lady for almost 7 years now. Our friendship turned into love and attraction. Although this lady knows from the start that I am already married, she sees me as her man and has accepted me as her man for the sake of Rasullallah [pbuh]. I also like her and feel for her. Her parents have been looking for a man for her for few years but without progress. On the other hand we are intimate with each other and I am very confused about this. We don’t have Nikah but she sees me as her man and I would also accept her as my lady.
My question is if we should make Nikah if we want to be intimate with each other and how can we solve this whole situation in general?
You are asking whether you can continue to be intimate in a haram way which is one of the major sins, or whether you should make nikah which is the way of purity and divine good pleasure? Of course the latter and it needs not be asked.
