Respected Sister,

You have betrayed your husband’s trust and committed a grave sin. You have also realized your mistake. If you are sincere in your repentance, you will be forgiven, in sha Allah. Remember Allah and never go towards this sin again.

The institution of marriage is intended to facilitate fulfillment of one’s desires in a lawful manner. Resolve any issues in your relationship that may have led to seeking fulfillment elsewhere. Talk with your husband and develop a healthy and fulfilling relationship. Be loving to your husband and he will reciprocate, in sha Allah.
