Husband not physically satisfied with wife
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
If a husband is not physically satisfied with their spouse in marriage, they have the following lawful options in Shariah:
- Bear their situation and condition of trial with patience, hoping for a reward in the Hereafter.
- Keep the first wife and marry another woman.
- Divorce the wife and marry another woman, and there would be absolutely no blame or sin upon him.
Whichever lawful option one chooses, one should fear Allah their Lord and Creator, and know with absolute conviction that they will be gathered in His Majestic Presence on an Inevitable and Tumultuous Day to give a full account of their deeds.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
