I have been going out with a non-muslim for a year before he reverted to islam. We got engaged before his reversion and we are living together. We were due to get married a month after he became a muslim but he has been told by an imam to wait for 9 months now before we get married- is this permissible or is it better to get married quickly? I’m not sure please advise. Thank you.
