Past misdeeds of wife
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.
Your Question: ..i got my wife; e-mail address password.so as a husbandd i have full right to check my wife;s e-mails so i checked my wife e-mails.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 49 Surah Hujuraat verses 12-13:
12 O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other nor speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay ye would abhor it...but fear Allah: for Allah is Oft-Returning Most Merciful.
13 O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 1480 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas
The Prophet (saws) said: He who sees the (personal) letter of his brother without his permission, sees Hell-fire!
In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws), in normal circumstances it is not permissible and an abhorred and detestable act in the Sight of Allah for one to read the private letters or diaries of another without their precise permission and consent.
The truth brother is that you as a husband do not have a right to read the private mails of your wife..if perchance you have done so, you should seek forgiveness for your manifest transgression not only from Allah Subhanah, but also from your wife.
Your Question: .I find that before marriage she hs done sex with 2-3 non muslims, she also drunk alcohol.i also saw the picture where she was in very dirty dress and she was kissing non muslims.and i red that where she lost her verginity.she also mentioned in her mails that she lost her verginity in this park.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.27 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a loser."
Respected brother, the time to thoroughly satisfy oneself with the character and practice of religion of ones suitor is before one agrees to marry them; not after one has already married them!!!
If you have knowledge now that your wife had in her past transgressed some of the prescribed Boundaries of Allah Subhanah and committed a sin..and subsequently she turned unto her Lord Most Gracious in taubah, sincerely sought forgiveness for her sins, and has amended her conduct.it would only be prudent that you bring yourself to overlook those past deeds of your wife.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verses 53-54:
(O Prophet) say: O My servants who have wronged their own souls.Do not despair of Allahs Mercy! Surely, Allah forgives all sins. He indeed is the All Forgiving, All Merciful. Return to your Lord and submit to Him before the scourge overtakes you; for then you may get no help from anywhere.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 135-136:
Allah likes such good people very much, who, if ever they commit a base deed or wrong their own soul by the commission of a sin, remember Allah instantly, and ask for forgiveness from Him for their shortcomings. For who, but Allah, can forgive sins? (And Allah loves those) who do not knowingly persist in the wrongs they did. These will be rewarded with forgiveness from Allah, and with Gardens beneath which canals flow, and they will reside therein forever! How excellent is the reward of those who do good deeds!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 54:
When those come to you who believe in Our Signs, say: "Peace be on you! Your Lord had inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy. Verily if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented and amended (his conduct), Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2357 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "He who repents of a sin is like him who has committed no sin."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2338 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah accepts a servant's repentance (taubah) till he gives up his spirit in death."
Just as one wishes for themselves that Allah Subhanah may forgive them their past sins, Allah Subhanah guides the believers to forgive and overlook the faults of their near and close ones.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verse 22:
22 ..let them forgive and overlook: do you not wish that Allah should forgive you? For Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
But if you sincerely believe that your wife is unrepentant at her manifest transgressions of her past, and there are chances that given a chance she may do the same again..or if you cannot bring yourself to forgive her .you obviously are well within your rights in Islam to seek a divorce from her in the marriage.
Respected brother in Islam, as difficult as it may be for a husband to forgive the betrayal of the chastity of his wife, even if that betrayal occurred before the marriage..the guidance of Islam dictates that either you absolutely bring yourself to forgive her past and fulfill unto her all her due rights in marriage; and if you cannot bring yourself to do that, seek a divorce and separate yourself from her. But to constantly doubt her every move or word, or to constantly hold her guilty for her past sins even after she has repented for her sins from her Lord Most Gracious, or to deny her her due rights in the marriage, etc. would severely affect the marital relationship that is expected from the pious and God-fearing believers in marriage.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
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,
