I`ve fallen in love with a married man who loves me too.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
i`ve fallen in love with a married man who loves me too. His intentions for me and our relation are very pure and he wants to give me complete recognition. He has never loved his first wife but has always been loyal to her and fulfilled all his resposibilties and duties. But now we both really love each other.We both are muslims and strongly believe in islam. Can we together forsee our future and can we get married
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Second marriage lawful
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 none 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 4 Surah Nisaa verse 3:
3 If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans marry women of your choice two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them) then only one or (a captive) that your right hands possess. That will be more suitable to prevent you from doing injustice.
Shariah Law allows and permits a believing man to marry and keep a maximum four wives at any one time if he wishes to do so, provided he is confident he will be able to deal justly and equitably amongst his wives.
If the married person who wish to marry for a second time is absolutely confident that he will be able to do justice amongst this two wives (if he were to chose to marry you), there is absolutely no harm in his exercising his right to choose to marry more than once. Such a marriage will be absolutely valid, legal and lawful in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
