    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 2197/H-925/TH=1432) (1) One should stand when Imam starts turning for second salam. (2) One should make intention for two rakah fardh, four rakah sunnah, two rakah nafl in his heart. It is enough. One can also do it verbally like "I intend for two rakah fardh/two rakah nafl/four rakahs sunnah". (3) He should join Imam in his short dua then read something else. (4) If one does true and genuine taubah his sin is removed. Then if the sin is committed again then also he should do true and genuine taubah. If nikah is lawful and halal with that girl and it is proper then he should do nikah as soon as possible. And if nikah is not better with her then the wish for nikah with her should be given up.
