Answer:

 

Boy loves married girl

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verse 32: Do not even go near zina (fornication or adultery) for it is a very indecent thing and a very evil way!

 

Zina is amongst the gravest sins in Islam, and if the people involved in zina do not seek sincere repentance and forgiveness from their Lord, their accounting on the Day of Judgement would be very severe indeed!

 

It is absolutely impermissible in Islam for a man to seek a relationship with a woman who is already married to another man! Similarly, it is a grave sin for a woman who is already married, to seek a relationship with another man outside her marriage!

 

Seeking to form a relationship with a married woman after, the Messenger of Allah (saws) forbade the believers, who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day, to even propose marriage to a woman, who has been proposed by or engaged to another!

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.884 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet said, "No town-dweller should sell for a bedouin. Do not practice Najsh (i.e. Do not offer a high price for a thing which you do not want to buy, in order to deceive the people). No Muslim should offer more for a thing already bought by his Muslim brother, nor should he demand the hand of a girl already engaged to another Muslim. A Muslim woman shall not try to bring about the divorce of her sister (i.e. another Muslim woman) in order to take her place herself."

 

Your Question: please guide them, send me the answer in detail how can we help them.

If you are their sincere friend and well-wisher and want to really help them, then tell them to stop this relationship immediately, and advice them to seek the repentance and forgiveness of Allah Subhanah for their sin of zina before the Day comes when they will find themselves in the Presence of the Majestic and Just Lord to give a full accounting of their deeds!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,
