The closest of people to her raped her

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
She was raped by her father and was no longer considered a virgin, then she had an illicit relationship with a man. Then she repented and performed ‘Umrah, and she wants to get married. What should she do, and should she tell her husband?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

She should praise Allaah for the blessings of guidance and be steadfast in adhering to the truth. She should do a lot of acts of worship and obedience. She should try her utmost not to be alone with her father in the house. She does not have to tell her husband about what happened, if she gets married. She should ask Allaah to conceal it and to grant her a way out.

 Her father is a criminal who should be advised, rebuked and deterred.

 We ask Allaah to keep us all safe and sound.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
