Nikaah in the state of janaabat

Q: I had zina with a girl (both of us are unmarried) right 1 hour before our Nikah, we didnt got time to take a bath and we completed our nikah like that only. Is my nikah valid or invalid? Should I have to do again nikah with her?

Important Note: The girl had zina with a person long time ago in her teenage years, in her past...and she repents it. After that I had married her. 

A: Your nikaah is valid. However, you both should sincerely make tawba for the major sin of zina that you both had committed before the nikaah.

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