Answered by: Maulana Mohammed Kamran Abid
I had an arranged marriage in Pakistan but lives in the UK. I recently found out that once I left for the office, my wife watches porn videos and pics online. I am very much depressed and heartbroken because she is hafiz of the Quran and she does this kind of stuff. I am thinking to end this marriage. Kindly advise what shall I do?

First, try advising her to stop watching pornography. Educate her about the physical and spiritual harms of watching pornography. Educate her about the harms of this action on marital life. Educate her of the reward of leaving sin.
Allah (SWT) mentions in the Quran, “Say to the believing men that they must lower their gazes and guard their private parts; it is more decent for them. Surely Allah is All-Aware of what they do. And say to the believing women that they must lower their gazes and guard their private parts […]"(Qur'an 24:30-31).
Only Allah knows best
