Enormities: Permitting One’s Wife To Fornicate

This is another article in the chapter Enormities from the classical manual on Sharia called Reliance of the Traveller. The articles are posted one by one in the order they are given in the book.

p27.1 Allah Most High says:
“None shall wed a fornicatress but a fornicator or idolator. That is unlawful for believers” (Koran 24:3).
p27.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
“Three will not enter paradise: he who is disrespectful to his parents, he who lets his wife fornicate with another, and women who affect masculinity. ”
p27.3 Someone who suspects his wife of indecency but pretends not to know because he loves her is not as bad as someone who actually pimps for her. There is no good in a man without jealousy for his rights.
