Boy loves hindu girl
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: how is it possible, and what are the things they have to do before marriage.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters) 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 un 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.
Beloved brother in Islam, Allah Subhanah has absolutely prohibited and forbidden the believers to seek to marry an idolatrous woman; such a union will be absolutely illegal, unlawful and invalid in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah.
But if the idolatrous women, of her own free will and with her heart and soul, chooses to accept Islam as her way of life, it would be lawful for the believer to seek her hand in marriage. But if the woman is not convinced enough to leave her idolatrous religion, it would be unlawful and forbidden for a believer who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day to seek her hand in marriage.
Your Question: obiously there parents are not ready for this marriage but then also they want to marry.Is it right for them?
Islam guides that the sacred bond of marriage is not just a simple union between two individuals, but an union of two families; thus it would only be righteousness and prudent to seek the parental consent of both parties before two individuals decide to marry.
If the woman agrees to accept Islam as her way of life, and even after their best efforts either party is not able to convince their parents of their choice in marriage, it would be akin and closer to piety and righteousness to sacrifice their choice and marry another whom both they and their parents consent to.
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 well wisher in Islam,
