Commitment to the nikaah

Q: Their is a friend of mine who wants to marry a girl but he is not able to decide as the girl has told him that she was in relation with a boy in past and has been physical with him also. And on the contrary my friend has also been physical but he has made a serious repent to Allah and is a practising muslim now Alhamdulillah. So he is very much confused now whether he should marry a girl who is not pure? Though he is not in touch with that girl now but is still very much confused about that girl what to be done. As he himself is not pure but now has made sincere tauba. So request you please help on this case.


A: If both of them have made istighfaar and they are prepared to lead a pure life and be committed to the nikaah, then he should get married to her.

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