If a wife has instigated(bhadkana)her husband to commit multiple murders then how can both of them repent to ALLAH SUBHAN’TAALA- and which one of the two is a bigger sinner- the husband( who has actually committed the murders) or the wife who has instigated her husband to do so.
They are now divorced and the wife has realised her mistake but the murderer husband has not realised his mistake- how should the wife help him now since she was the one who made him commit the murders by instigating him.
kindly reply soon, ALLAH HAFIZ
The one who helps someone do wrong is like the one who commits it. The Nabee of Allaah ﷺis reported to have said, “Whoever invites someone towards righteousness will get the same reward of the one who follows it without being diminished anything from the reward of the latter and whoever calls someone to wrong will get the same sin of the committer without being diminished anything being from the sin of the committer.”
Therefore, both of husband and wife are the same. They must pay blood money to the heirs of the victim and ask forgiveness from them and make sincere Tawbah-repentance. The ex-wife, if she wants may help the murderer realize his sins mentioning the consequence of murdering through letters and similar means provided that there is no fear of getting involved in unlawful affairs. But if there is a fear of getting involved in sin then she is not permitted to communicate with the murderer through any means. She must repent of her sin and ask forgiveness from the relatives of the victim paying blood money. Allaah سبحانه وتعالىsays, “(O you who believe! Al-Qisas-the Law of equality is prescribed for you in case of murder: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. But if the killer is forgiven by the brother of the killed, then it should be sought in a good manner, and paid to him respectfully. This is an alleviation and a mercy from your Lord. So after this, whoever transgresses the limits he shall have a painful torment.” (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:178)
