Ask an Alim

If a girl has been in a relationship does she need to tell her potential nikkah suitor about this history?

Q:

Salam alaykum! I have a question – if a girl has been in a relationship previously (not physical) but has repented to Allah, does she need to tell her potential nikkah suitor about this history?

A:

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you very much for your question 
 
No she doesn’t. Infact if there is a fear that one may loose the love of her husband or the act may bring a distance between them,  then it should definitely be kept away. 
 
You are accountable for your sins only towards the Almighty Allah (swt) and no one else. And since you have repented InshaAllah it Is all accepted.
 
InshaAllah you Have a wonderful future together, 
Kind regards,
