Hello everyone!

I am a Hindu from India going to marry Muslim woman. Our marriage, though not accepted by the Islamic Law, is accepted by the Law of the land.

My question is, will my would be cease to be a Muslim if she marries me? If not what will she be considered for marrying a non-Muslim? I have no objection towards her Faith.

Thank you.

Her marriage will not be valid under islamic law, she would be living in sin if she goes through with the marriage.

There is no excemunication in islam she would still be considered a muslim only one who is commiting a great sin.

I have no objection towards her Faith.


have you decided what faith the children will be?

Hello Rami!

Can I know why the marriage is considered a great sin? Does that mean she will go to hell?

About our children, its their wish about the Faith. No compulsion about it.

Thank you.

i am sorry but a muslim woman cannot be married to a non muslim man, it invalidates the shahada.

she ceases to be muslim

why did the prophet pbuh request his daughters be returned to him pbuh.

Assalamu alaikum,

hkrespect: marrying a non-Muslim man does not invalidate the shahada anymore than commiting any other sin.  You cannot tell someone they are not Muslim for sinning, judgement is Allah's alone.

In your scenario, any Muslim who gambles, eats pork, drinks alcohol, commits adultery, fails to say five daily salat, mingles with members of the opposite sex, doesn't fast in Ramadhan, doesn't wear proper hijab, and so on and so on... is no longer Muslim.  That is ludicrous.

Only Allah can judge.  Allah is oft forgiving, Most Merciful.  A sinner is simply a sinner.  Sin, with the exception of shirk, does not invalidate anyone's shahada.  And even then, only Allah can judge.

If this Muslim woman marries The One, she will be sinning, but she will still be a Muslim.  Allah will weigh her good deeds against her bad deeds on the judgement day.

Peace, ummziba.

assalamu alaikum

how does commiting a sin ivalidate what you believe to be true, faith is in the heart read the ahadith about allahs mercy if you go to him with sins as high as the sky and not commit the one thing unforgivable shirk he will forgive you. Saying it invalidates the shahada is the beliefe of the Khawarij, so we should be careful that our beliefe is correct.

He requested it becouse the marriage is no longer valid and the would be living in sin.

The One a muslim women can not marry a non muslim man, Allah has decreed against it that is why it is a sin.

I dont know if she will go to hell, if Allah forgives her than no. Our deeds are weighed on the day of judgment those whose sins number more than there good deeds will go to hell. No muslim will stay in hell for ever it is only a punishment not an eternal destination.

Assalamu alaikum,

No, a Muslim man cannot marry a Hindu.  He can only marry a Muslim or a practicing woman from the people of the book (Christian, Jew) who believes in and worships the One God.  That pretty much narrows the field to Muslims only.

Peace, ummziba.
