In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Sister in Islam,

We take note of your frustrations.

You state you lost trust in your husband and you fear he may cheat on you.

Sister, we observe both of you are living apart. Why is this so?

Married couples ought to be living together. It is possible that both of you are having bouts of suspicion on each other due to being apart from each other.

If you’ll begin living together with openness and transparency, then there won’t be any reason to be doubtful and suspicious. 

Our advice is both of you discuss the issue personally or through the intervention of an appropriate person and consider living together. That will close all doors to suspicion.

If your husband still has suspicion, then you could consider the medical angle.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
