    What to do if your husband cheats on you and as a result there is a child. We have children as well.


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Infidelity is definitely painful and devastating for a partner. Our advice is to seek family therapy and counselling. One may choose to end the marriage and move on, or one may choose to forgive and re-establish the marriage with some concrete agreements in place.

    “If they both desire reconciliation, Allah will cause it between them. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Acquainted [with all things].” (4:35)

    And Allah knows best.
