A Husband Forcing His Wife to Have Sex with Other Men


What if a husband forces his wife to have sex with other man because he likes to see her having sex with other men and earning some money too.It’s been 14 years to marriage and 2 kids


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

A man who acts like that is an immoral wicked cuckold whose natural disposition is corrupted. There is no good expected from a man who does not display protective jealousy over his honor (womenfolk). It was narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  them that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: "There are three people to whom Allah has forbidden Paradise: the one who is addicted to Khamr (intoxicants), the undutiful child, and the Dayyooth (cuckold) who approves indecency done by his womenfolk." [Ahmad]

It is forbidden for his wife to obey him in this regard since no obedience is due to a created being in what constitutes disobedience to the Creator. It was narrated on the authority of ‘Ali  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him that he heard the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, say: “There should be no obedience in matters involving disobedience to Allah. Verily, obedience is due only in what is good (and permissible).” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

She should give him advice kindly, remind him of Allah, The Exalted, and urge him to repent. If he repents, all praise be to Allah; otherwise, there is no good for her in staying with him. She should ask for divorce, even if in return for a compensation that she pays him. The Hanbali scholar Al-Buhooti  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him wrote in Kash-shaaf Al-Qinaa‘: “If a husband neglects any of the rights of Allah, it is recommended for the wife – just as it is recommended for a husband in a similar situation – to request Khul‘ (divorce at the instance of the wife in return for a compensation payable by her) on account of his neglect of the rights of Allah upon him.” [End of quote]
