Renewing one's Imaan due to having a wrong belief

Q: A man made nikaah with a lady. After a few years of marriage, the lady said to the husband that from the age of nine she believed that Allah will accept the worship of the Hindus as they claim to worship God through their idols, though she did not express her belief in words. At the time of their nikaah, she maintained this belief. A few days ago she realised that such a belief is incorrect and has since repented to Allah. What is the status of their nikaah?

A: This was a misunderstanding. It is safer that she repeats the kalimah and renews the nikaah.

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