Marrying a prostitute

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’m 25 years old, unmarried by birth. I am a Muslim and I was not practising till last month and now I got fear of Allah. I started praying and reading Qur’an everyday. I need help on this. I met a girl on social media 6 months ago. We chatted only online. She is Christian and her profession is sexworker (prostitution) and we started loving each other. She stopped working (prostitution) because of me. Does Islam allow me to marry her. Now I’m fearing about Allah more.


A: Don’t marry such a woman. In these matters you should be consulting your parents and elders.

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