Premarital relationship

Q: I am in a deep relation with my girlfiriend and after a long time now, about 4 years I had came to know about her previous relationship. They had physical relations too. But at present she is saying that it was her past and she has left him behind and she was purely in love with me so now what should I do as per shariyat? I dont know what to do with her because our relationship is gone quite far. Infact I was planning to get married to her. Since she told me everything about her past I am not sure what to do with her? Can you please suggest what is better for me because she means alot to me cares alot for me?

A: Both of you are sinful. Any type of premarital relationship is haraam and forbidden. Both of you should make taubah. Thereafter, if you seem to be interested insha-Allah she will be a good match for you.

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