Q: I am in love with one of my colleagues and I want to marry her but what makes me reluctant is that she had a boyfriend and had sex with him in this hope that he will later marry her which unfortunately didn’t happen. Now she is hopeless about her future and I think I can help her but I am reluctant as I said. I want to ask if I marry her with intention of making her life better, will this act please Allah and will He reward me greatly?
A: If both are sincere and both wish to correct your lives, Allah will definitely be pleased with you both.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
