Question

Although it may not be respectful, is there anything wrong in asking a future wife-to-be whether she is a virgin or not?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

If there is some doubt concerning a (future) wife’s chastity, then you have the right to find out, but if you do not have any doubts, there is no need for this, because it may generate hatred and enmity, and be a reason for a lack of peace of mind.
