Married woman converting to Islam

Q: I want to know one married lady converted her religion from Christianity to Islam and now she is separated for the last two years from her husband. After converting to Islam, is her previous marriage valid?


A: If her previous husband was not a Muslim, then after her converting to Islam with the passing of three menstrual cycles her nikaah will terminate.

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