Wife and Brother in law relationship

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:

What if my wife has an illicit affair and intercourse with my younger brother continously and i donot have red handed proof except the incidental evidence like i came home earlier at odd timing at the time they both were alone and when i entered she was wayward dressed up so i immediately asked for having intercourse and started foreplay which she she refused but still i went further to undress her forcefully and alramingly no under garments and she was not able to handle the intercourse as she was very sensitive already and even before starting the intercouse she was very wet flowing and could see white fluid drops flowing out out of her like of a man fluid inside her after intercourse.


Other incident of wife being top naked sleeping in her bedroom with room unlocked and brother alone at home other incidents that he shalwar is usually torn from middle the way to have easy access to her genitals


when asked she refused strongly...what should i do....i live with wife and brother here...

please advice

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.

The situation that you have described can indeed have extremely grave consequences, and nothing destroys a marriage like suspicion.  Thus under the circumstances described, it would be best to warn the wife to fear Allah and strictly guard her modesty in front of her non-mehrams, which includes the brother of her husband.


The Messenger of Allah said in an authentic narration: ‘The male near relatives of the husband are like ‘death’ for the wife!’


Because the husbands near relatives have easy access to their house and family, the Messenger of Allah (saws) specifically warned the believers of the grave consequences if the relationship between their near male relatives and the wife is not guarded and controlled. 


Your Question: what should i do

In the absence of a confession from either the brother or the wife, and in the absence of proper evidence, it might be that it is only your suspicion, and nothing destroys a marriage like suspicion.  Although nothing but the fear of Allah can stop two people who are bent on transgressing the laws of Allah, it would be best to seek to separate your living with your brother and strictly warn you wife not to entertain any casual or private talk or sitting with your brother in your absence. 


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

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
