Muslim marry Ahmadi
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.
Your Question: So Now The Question Is, Can A Sunni And Ahmady Marry With Eachother?
The Ahmadi sect believes in the advent of a Prophet after the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws); any person who holds such a belief automatically leaves the fold of Islam and will be regarded as a disbeliever in the sight of Shariah.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry unbelieving women until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman even though she allure you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever, even though he allure you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the fire. But Allah beckons by His grace to the Garden (of Bliss) and forgiveness and makes His Signs clear to mankind: that they may celebrate His praise.
Allah Subhanah has specifically prohibited the marriage of a believer with an unbelieving woman; and any marriage that takes place between a believing man and an unbelieving woman will be considered a clear transgression of the Commands of Allah Subhanah, and regarded as absolutely null and void in the sight of Shariah.
Regardless of how much one loves an unbeliever, and regardless of how much one fears hurt and pain if the relationship is brought to an end; we as believers must fear the Wrath and Anger of Allah Subhanah on those who transgress His Laws, and know with certaintly that no amount of pain and hurt experienced in the life of this world could possibly even dare to compare itself with the pain and hurt that will be unleashed on those who transgress the Laws of the All-Mighty Lord.
Your Question: Is There Any Possibility In Sunni Community Or In Ahmady Community To Accept The Marriage Of A Sunni And A Ahmady?
The only legal way for a believer to marry an unbeliever is to convince her to accept Islam and become a true believer. Even if the communities of the world accept the marriage of a believer with an unbelieving woman, Allah is our witness, such a marriage will not be acceptable in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and sincere well wisher in Islam,
