Can I marry a girl who has repented of her past sins…



Can I marry a girl ,I know some of her past stories like she had commited zina ?
But now she has done tawbah.


Wa alaykum Salam

Thank you for your question.

Allah swt says in the holy Quran that He loves those who do tawba.

والله یحب التوابین

A person who realizes his mistake and repents enjoys a very high position before Allah swt.

Therefore there is nothing wrong in marrying a person who has done tawba. However, one must be sure that the person really intended not to ever indulge in the sin again.
