Repenting for one’s past sins

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: ‘If you start it with haram, it can never be blessed’ Is it true? Is it true that the marriage can not last long if it was started in a haram way like sex before marriage? How do I make it work after marriage?


A: If you sincerely repent and rectify yourself and resolve never to go back to the wrong and you discourage others from all the types of wrongs and inappropriate activity, insha-Allah you will receive the barkat of nikaah like others enjoy.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
