Rights of brother who marries hindu

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the prescribed punishment for ‘zina’ (adultery) in Islam is indeed ‘to be stoned until death’; but that is only when the ‘zina’ (adultery) case is brought forth in a Shariah Court in an Islamic State, and the accused is proven to have been guilty of the heinous crime within the due process of Islamic Law. It is not as if anyone has a right to simply go and stone to death anyone who one thinks is guilty of ‘zina’ (adultery)!


The brother who posed the question wanted to know the rights of a muslim man who marries a hindu girl, and we addressed that question according to the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah. If the man has declared the ‘shahaadah’ or testimony of faith and subsequently he marries a pagan girl without her reversion to Islam, indeed he would be guilty of living a life of ‘zina’ in the sight of Allah Subhanah; but that would not in any way effect the man’s statuary rights as a muslim in any way. Unless and until the man himself declares unbelief in Islam and declares himself an apostate, he will be regarded as a ‘legal’ muslim in the sight of Islamic Law; and all the rights that are due to a believer will be accorded to him in full.


Allah Subhanah, in His Infinite and Sublime Mercy, has left the doors of Taubah and repentance open for each individual until one meets with his appointment of death. It may be that the brother recognizes his error before his death and turns to Allah Subhanah in sincere Taubah and seeks forgiveness, or it may be that his pagan ‘wife’ may accept Islam and The Forgiving and Merciful Lord envelopes them in His Infinite Mercy and Grace.


Our duty is to only to guide and warn the brother of the consequences as prescribed in the Quran and the Sunnah regarding his deed, and implore him to fear Allah and turn back to Him in sincere Taubah. To accept or reject guidance is a decision each individual has to make himself, and none other than the individual would be responsible for it in the Just and Supreme Court of Allah Subhanah.


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.


Your Brother in Islam,
