Zina Before Nikah: Is My Marriage Valid?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I made zina with a girl (both of us are unmarried) one hour before our Nikah. We didnt get time to take a bath and we completed our nikah like that only. Is my nikah valid or invalid? (Or) Should I have to do the nikah again with her? 


A: It is valid, but make taubah for the zina.

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