Marriage - Stuck in an Unhappy Situation
  • Question:

    I am in a unhappy marriage and have started having lustful thoughts towards some of my female colleague. I am too afraid of ending my current marriage as we have a young son but I don't want to commit an affair, what should I do? I am stuck in the middle. Please advise.


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.
    Firstly, do not let shaytan make any excuses for you to have any relationship with any female colleague. Allah has made them haram for you whether youre single or married.

    Secondly, the Quranic prescription is to focus on what you like about your spouse and build on that. No one is perfect and to focus on their imperfections is unjust.

    Thirdly, put your pride aside and seek marital counseling to make it better. If you have a Muslim one that is better obviously.

    And Allah knows best.
