Q: I want to marry a divorced girl and she has one daughter also. After marriage her parents will adopt the kid. As per that girl, her family will not disclose anything in front of my family. So, If I am hiding her background from my parents and my family, will this act be bad or good according to shariah as my intention is nikah and reward only.
A: It is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
