I'm considering marrying a man, but he had sexual intercourse with a male-to-female pre-op transsexual. He explains it to be a phase one he has "got out of his system", saying it's a curiosity and a fascination.

Islam Q&A discusses a similar situation, writing:

It is not permissible for you to go ahead and marry him until he repents sincerely. Simply promising does not count as repentance.
Islam Q&A

My question is: How can one determine whether another has sincerely repented?

The recommendation in another Islam Q&A fatwa is for someone who practices homosexuality to get married.

  • I read on Islamqa that it wasn't permissible for a woman to marry a man who committed such sins till he sincerely has repented. But how can one determine whether another has sincerely repented. – Rowdah Mar 22 '18 at 15:41
  • @III-AK-III How can I post this link on Islam Q&A ? – Rowdah Mar 22 '18 at 16:55
  • As @III-AK-III wrote it would be helpful if you shared the link of this fatwa with us. – Medi1Saif Mar 23 '18 at 6:59
  • @III-AKI-III islamqa.info/en/20068 islamqa.info/en/13707 This one was the one I referenced earlier I just noticed it doesn't relate to the situation I mentioned. – Rowdah Mar 23 '18 at 11:24
