happened between that man and that woman – based on what is mentioned in the
question – is undoubtedly zina. Where was the woman’s wali (guardian) in
this marriage? It is strange that the angels were witnesses to this marriage

have to do is repent to Allaah from what you have done, and realize that you
have committed a major sin. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) said: “No adulterer is a believer at the time when he is

Islamic manner, after repenting from what they have fallen into of zina. And
Allaah knows best.
